Whenever I get a little more free time, I find myself powering down. I work less, draw and write more. Reconnect with my friends. I read. All of these things have a paradoxical effect of both nourishing me and making me anxious. I definitely tie my self worth to my productivity, and I consciously have to turn off a part of my brain that expects me to be able to do more. I’m working on breaking these unhealthy thought patterns by forcing myself to live in these moments of enjoyment.
One nice thing about the whole 2.5 career gig I’ve got going is that I can double dip on work & pleasure. Reading is part of my writing career now, & so lately I’ve been getting lost in books. Here I am surrounded by some of the books I’m currently reading/ about to read. What’s on your TBR?
