No two days are equal. Today is not a good day. Nor is it a bad day. It’s just that I am feeling heavy. Do you know what I mean? I am not sure that I do either. You could say I’m treading water, keeping my head above the waterline. I wish I am more buoyant. I am getting tired. I think I am coming down with something.

Even so, it is difficult to rest, to let things be. I have this feeling, compulsion to do, to get ahead, to accomplish. I wonder if it’s me or is it the society we live in. Have I bought into or have I been brainwashed into the idea that I have to be useful, productive, blah, blah, blah. I really like to rest awhile like in the olden days, guilt free. I’m starting to feel flu like. My eyes and nose are dry like sandpaper. My head a bit achy. My body heavy and weighed down like a big sandbag. Even my hands feel flu-ish and achy.

So, why don’t I just give everything a rest? I feel somewhat programed like an EverReady battery. I feel pushed to GO, GO, GO. It’s no wonder that when I get sick, I get SICK. A couple of months ago, I had a summer cold. It lasted a month. I coughed and coughed the whole month. I think I better smarten up, ease up, drink lots of fluids and REST. I should not think so much. I should learn to let go and let be.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

    Hope you feel better tomorrow, if you’re getting sick then just slow down, enjoy your tea and a good book! I’ll do the swimming for you, bought 10 passes today at our indoor civic Center and thought if you as I started my laps! It was fantastic, I hope I keep it up and don’t find excuses to be a couch potato 😉

      Thanks Terry. I am feeling better though the dog did keep me up last night. Maybe she’s coming down with something, too. I’m glad you’re taking the plunge for me. 🙂 I always feel so good after my swim. Sometimes it is hard to get there but once you establish the habit, you miss it if you skip. I think I’ll take your advice though and slow down. Not a problem today. Seems like I can’t move very fast when I’m lacking sleep.
