I always budget time for myself. I’m introspective.
I have a lot on my mind right now. None of it can go on my blog, unfortunately, but it’s sapping a lot of intellectual energy. Yesterday on a plane I did something I rarely do: I took out my iPod, connected them to Bose noise-cancelling headphones, and played one of my favorite songs at the moment (“Something Pretty” by Patrick Park). I put my head in hands, closed my eyes, and just thought.
It was a quiet moment. I wish I could treat myself to more of them.
