Gratitude in slowing down

Today I’m feeling the inertia.

It’s hard because I want to read. I went shopping today and took a trip out to the library. When they didn’t have the book I wanted, I stopped at the bookstore and bought it. Add one more book I have started reading to my list.

And right now, all I want to do is go curl up in the blankets and read. That might not be too far away from happening. I’d gone to bed early last night so I could read, and then ended up waking up early this morning. I got an hour of audio work done.

But I was really hoping to get something else done today. That was before I slowed with this inertia.

Okay, I could be tired. I have physical things going on right now and that’s making life have a difficult edge. As a result, I’m not sleeping well and my energy is sapped. I know it’s nothing serious and that I’ll rebound. I’m not sick, just dealing. My body is going through a lot, which is probably why I want to read so much. It’s my mind’s way of staying active while my physical being takes a moment.

And, if this is all I have to deal with in life, I’ll take it. I know so many other people who are enduring much worse than me right now. Rather, I find gratitude in what I’m going through at the moment. It’s given me some insight. It’s also giving me a break before I enter a new phase.

Yep, I think it’s time to go read and sleep. It’s what I’m craving right now, so I will listen.
