Just Another Sleepless Night with a Side of Morosity

Having another one of these sleepless nights. They seem to come more frequently these days. I'm sure it could be due to any number of reasons. I've a fair amount of work stress, even if it is from a job I love. I am still in school this summer and will be taking on an even larger caseload in the fall. My social life has zoomed out of control (seriously, this introvert needs a break!). And I've been struggling to work through some stuff in my head. I've been trying to write this particular post for nigh on three weeks and every time that I think I have it all figured out and have something honest, pithy, or witty to use, it all just kind of unravels as I attempt to type it up.

It's been one of those months where, even though I know that I'm headed in the right direction, I seem to be second-guessing myself at every turn. I don't like this at all. It's something that I thought I'd really gotten over in the past year or so. But apparently it's not to be as I'm sitting here again, wide awake and full of self-doubt.

Please Slow Down

I was out running errands on my lunch break today when a sign caught my eye as I was driving down the highway. "Please Slow Down" it read. Obviously, it had been placed there because of construction zones, but today it struck a different chord with me. "Please Slow Down". I feel like I need this sign to flash in front of me about once a day. Not because I'm speeding while driving (I'm probably one of the pokiest drivers out there), but because of how often I run, run, run through my day, never taking a moment to just sit and breathe.
