On Shaking Off the Summer Haze

This summer, as I may have mentioned once or twice before, has been more than a tad hectic to say the least. Always being on the go and always doing stuff may seem awesome and fun for a while but after a month or so of constant activity? Well let’s just say the charm wears off soon and you actually start relishing the odd day or so of having nothing to do!

So yes, I definitely need a vacation after this summer, though I suppose a vacation would mean more activity and moving around so maybe what I really need is a few consecutive days of peace and quiet and nothing to do.

A side-effect of constant activity that I didn’t anticipate was the mental haze that comes with it. Basically, when you’re always working or on the move, there really isn’t any time in the day to think. I like to think of myself as a wannabe writer and usually my head is always full of ideas and snatches of creative inspiration but for the first time in a long time all my head seems to be full of is a hazy cloud of exhaustion. Even when I’m actively trying to come up with things to write, all I end up with is the idea of wanting to write and nothing to go with it, and that really bothers me. Writing, or creativity in general, is an essential part of who I am and without it, I just feel slightly lost.

So yes, summer is almost over (hopefully) and I for one cannot wait for the dull routine of life to pick up again. Maybe I’ll have better luck shaking off this haze when my physical life is less demanding!

  1. Hi N, I hear everything you are saying loud and clear! It has just been constantly going with work and the kids off school. I will be looking forward to some Me time ( if I’m not being selfish ) in September just to recoup. I am not the greatest writer bur as you can see on my blog I love posting my likes. Doing the countdown with you N, huggs, Terri.
