I'm not tired,
Limits can feel like a curse.
Right now, that this is ‘Monday’ and no longer ‘time off’, many of us switch tasks.
Weekends don’t seem to be a place where any rest can be found.
Keeping things go go going along can take people right to the edge of their capacity.
I’ve notices that with some of the people, some of the time, that they can shut down, turn off and rest.
(I have this ability and will use it once my children don’t need me as much anymore which seems to be arriving alarmingly quickly)
I’ve noticed that with some of the people some of the time,
(and please put me on this list)
when they reach the point of extreme fatigue, exhaustion and bone tired wearieness that they decend into an absurd wackyness.
Singing instead of speaking, dancing with broomsticks, clean and dirty dishes and constant puns and wordplay can be energizing.
Know that this comes with its own set of problems.
It can be difficult to connect with someone who is going ‘extra’.
But with that in mind, it’s imossible to connect with someone who is passed out.
When you have nothing left in the tank, try turning thing up to eleven. Push a bit.
Because eleven is bigger than ten.
And once there, you might have enough to power you over the hump.
Some times, give up.
Other times push.
How to know the difference?
Well… How do you know the difference?
What do you normally tend to do?
What would it be like doing the opposite?
Who might be most shocked?
