Feeling Better

I may be ready to blog again. It's been almost a month since I have blogged regularly and I have enjoyed not thinking about anything too heavily.

I tend to live so much within my head, that when I begin to blog and comment with regularity my mind becomes too crowded and furiously moving to give my inner self the peace that it needs.

I can care too much. I can become obsessed with a particular idea too easily.

I have to rely on the other part of me to pull in the reins and cut myself off from my neurotic tendencies.

Damn how I can relate... My OCD brain goes on overload, particularly when pondering imponderables, and sometimes I just feel the need to completely shut if off! ugh

Good to have you back. Like I said, I can really identify with the thoughts that sent you on a hiatus. Its been 6.5 years since I worked. It is hard.

Like a Child,

It is hard. When you stay home with kids you wind up living your life in very demarcated stages. I guess I am just impatient to start the next stage in which I begin to find a path in life that isn't only about nurturing and care-taking.

I do work part-time, but not in any job that could be considered a "career" it's nice to contribute somewhat to our finances...but I still feel like I'm in limbo.
