And so it goes in my head. In most things these days; not just as in the case of the cartoon above. It is so easy to get ahead of myself. To not live in the moment. Or at least have a healthy balance between living in the moment and considering future possibilities.
I remember arriving home to Christchurch, and already I was frantically researching future study options that realistically I was not going to be able to consider beginning for at least a year.
The up side is that I can laugh at myself now. Trying as hard as I can to remind myself that this is a time of essentially reconstructing my life from ground zero in terms of friendships, world-view, ‘career*’, living arrangements etc.
It is hard to have patience at the moment. But time flows as slowly or as quickly as the eye of the beholder feels it.
* Career: A convenient term to describe ‘thing(s) that I do which I enjoy and get fulfilment out of, but also recieve money from’.
