Restoring Balance

 Restoring Balance

Have you ever taken extended time off from your normal routine? Did you find it easy to return to it? How long did it take for daily balance to resume?  It has been a very long time since I've had a long period away from home.

The past couple of weeks have been just wonderful…the flight from Asheville to Tampa, spending time with my mother, brothers and sisters in law, the road trip from St Pete to Montgomery, Alabama, the Shakespeare plays, the King’s Feast, the road trip to Balsam, NC, more time with my Mom, the road trip back to St Pete, meeting Tammy Lankford, the bookstore in Valdosta, more visiting with brothers and family, the flight back to Asheville and then home to Balsam.

I loved every minute of it but missed home and my regular blogging schedule. How odd, I’ve only been at this for a little over a year but it’s astounding to me that it has become such a large part of my daily routine. Not only does AR provide me with a creative outlet but there’s also the regular interaction with people who’ve become very important to me. I’ve missed them and couldn’t wait to have a regular access to a computer and internet connection to catch up with everyone…and yet, I’m not fully back in the swing of everything. Slowly everything is coming back…today was better than yesterday and tomorrow will be better than today.

One of our very favorite clients (now a friend) stopped in today and visited Leslie and me for a while, that was good and went a long way towards making me feel like I was home again. Since I got back a couple of days ago, we’ve had a closing, received two referrals for two different listings, made arrangements for some showings for a new buyer, we wrote an offer, I caught up on correspondence and calls…so for sure, the days are becoming more productive.

Maybe by tomorrow daily routine (well, as routine as I get anyway) will return and the daily balance will be restored.

Belinda, nothing is better than having a partner you can depend on!  Take those vitamins, drink lots of water and eat your veggies.  You are a young woman and you'll get through it just fine.

Mona,

I haven't taken much time off. I am glad you had a great two week vacation with family and I am sure you are glad to be home. There really is nothing like home, is there?

Patty, this was the first time in many years that I was able to do this.  If Leslie hadn't given so generously of her time it wouldn't have happened.  Thank you for your kind note.

Allen, thanks.  It's always good to see you too.

I'd say it takes several days after you get back to be back in schedule. But, if you're lucky, it takes even longer. The idea is to hold onto that refreshed feeling as long as you can. I just went through something similar without blogging for about 5 days and I missed it too, but it's alright, AR is still here and now, I am too.

Jill, a mini break from everything just seems to make sense.  You're right, its still here.
