The whole point of getting off the gravy train was to give myself time to be. Not to think, or to do, but to stop and see what happens. It is not easy. I no longer make lists of things I should do. I'm happy to let the pile of unread books sit there blissfully unread. The immediate stresses and strains of commuting and delivering corporate tasks have gone.
Stopping remains a challenge. I'm so used to filling my time and mind with activity, it's a hard habit to break. I want to learn how to stop, and be.
