To be done with really big things is such a tremendous relief. To actually be done with something -finished - no more! How wonderfully great!
But I'm not done with anything, nothing, zilch. So I thought if I could just put myself in that frame of mind, that super finished feeling, I could fool myself into a peaceful place. If I could just pretend that the gargantuan decisions have been made, the chores done, the repairs finished and the events over, I could feel that lightness of step and my shoulders wouldn't be hunched up around my ears.
And to tell you the truth I have been pretending all day and I feel a little lighter. A happy lightness.
I love to pretend. It's the next best thing to acting!
