I'm generally an organized person. I use a planner. I make lists. I prioritize. I Get Things Done. But. Every once in while, things really get away from me and I feel a little . . . untethered.
Last night, this balloon came into view. Lovely, free-floating, colorful. But also . . . way up there! I started thinking about it as a metaphor for my current state of mind. I'm in a good place. I'm happy. I'm just kind of floating along in my own blue sky. But. I'm also feeling a bit . . . flighty. I need to ground myself again, feel in control of my schedule, tie up some loose ends, focus. (Shoot, I just need to wade through the laundry room and head to the grocery store on a regular basis!)
It's been a busy summer. This week is going to be busy, too. But next week? School starts. Structure begins. I'll be able to make a soft landing then!
