Out of Focus

Though over the flu, I'm still not feeling up to snuff, as we say.  And, I'm not so sure why.  Some down, some tired, some busy.  Focusing at work seems to happen more easily when I limit my hours.  Plan on staying half a day, and for that amount of time, I get more done than many days when I stay the whole day.  Go figure.

My internet connectivity has been limited lately, and I haven't read many blogs.  Forgive my not getting to your blog.  I am grateful for those who continue to read mine, tedious as it may be, right now.  I'm hoping to catch up on some or just read the latest posts.  Reading is a time- and focus-consuming task for me. 

Actually, I've needed a lot of quiet lately.  Maybe more than usual.  And I've tried to take some, but not always with good result. Being without agenda, with no one demanding my time is hard for me to take.  I just don't know what to do with myself!  I know, many of you would kill for some free, agenda-less time.  And here I am, fretting over it.

Focus is the thing.  Somehow, I need to focus on planning some unfocused time.  Time when my only agenda is to sit with some silence.  Take a hike, and sit.  Take a book and read. 

E'en now, I'm fading.  Later.

If you're accustomed to have others organise you and demand your time and attention it makes perfect sense to be at a loss when you find yourself able to make your own decisions and plan your own schedule.
It may be the perfect time to rediscover activities that you may have enjoyed doing in the past but have fallen by the wayside as years have gone by; perhaps even goals that have drifted or been forgotten that you can now get your teeth back into?
Why do I sound like a horoscope! :-)
Glad you're feeling better. X

Indeed, I'd do anything to have some agneda-less time. Enjoy it!

Go with the flow. I'm glad you're allowing yourself time to recuperate. Sleep is a good idea, whenever the mood strikes (but not while you're driving).

take a slow mend, go slow now.

I am happy to hear you continue on the mend. I sense that it is common for those of us who are used to being consumed by tasks to find a comfortable transition to down time.

Evening
I found your post interesting. I recently found myself with a huge block of free time and was absolutely lost. Its amazing..all those years I bitched about "no-time...no-time" and there I was just floundering. My rythm changed, I found a coule ways to focus and took a trip. It seems to be getting better now but it took a while. Good luck with it.
