Today I made the ride up to Vermont, To visit with Mikaela for a week.
While it was quite a long and dragging trip, I did enjoy the sights (and solitude!). Some time alone every so often is a pleasure which I treasure (when I can!).
It took me seven hours to get here.
This is the longest time I’ve spent away from family and friends. It’s something that’s long overdue for me. I tend to stay so static that I fall into a rut… And then I do not focus on myself or any of the things I need to do, instead only on working for others.
This makes me lose myself, and all my work begins to suffer in response to that.
I think that this is something that I need to do every now and again, for me. To reaffirm that I am not alive for someone else, to do what they need done.
I am alive for me, and for my goals… But I still like to help when I’m around.
