I'm exhausted. That's really all that's on my mind tonight. I have so many people depending on me to be functioning at my best, but all I want is to lay down and never get up again. I'm just exhausted.
Work like you don't need the money;
dance like no one is watching;
sing like no one is listening;
love like you've never been hurt;
and live life every day as if it were your last.

Hey, Dan.

I feel for you. Perhaps this is how it feels at this particular moment. Perhaps you want to finally face everything and make it all right.

Life seems to me to be a process. Not everything can happen at the same time, when we want it, especially when it comes to work and recovery.

What seems important is building trust in yourself, even as you look at difficult things at the pace that feels right.

Hope you create some space to take care of yourself. Sometimes that's the first step.

Lose the drama; life is a poem.

Hey Dan,

Can I ever relate to this! Between a "recovery", job, marraige, and a large family, I am stretched mighty thin. We need to make taking care of ourselves a priority. We will not do those who depend on us any good if we fall apart. Take a day off, go to the beach or hike a mountain. Or just sleep all day. Do something ALONE and for just one day don't think about the job, the family, the marriage, bills, and on and on.
I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories
