one of my favorite old sayings (it's one that i used to spur me on when i went to college later in life) is 'for your ship to come in, you have to build the dock'. it makes sense to my weird right/left brained mind that the ship just can't pull up because you can't access the ship without a dock and gangplank. so, if you don't make the errrr, groundwork, then you cannot reap the benefits of your hopes and dreams.
today, i've been repairing the rotted planks in my dock. studying a bit of the issues i will be working on, reviewing my old work wardrobe to make sure it's ready to go, washing clothes, getting my paperwork together for orientation, putting away so many of my leisure clothes. it feels good, you know? in some ways it makes me wonder why i waited to do this...some of these things needed doing while i was away from the daily grind. i'm sure a spot of depression was part of it all.
i think in a bit, i'll go to the store for a hardy, healthy, meal that will now probably be restricted to the weekeds while i'm adjusting back to the workweek. it will feel good.
hope you're enjoying your glorious sunday. it's a beauty down here.
