At some point, the only way to achieve peace of mind is to let go. Fro me, letting go means giving up on the illusion that I have control. That’s hard for me to do. Especially with work, I want all ends to be tied up when the day is over. I want everything organized into its proper slot. I have always felt that when my physical and mental surroundings are neat and tidy, my soul can more easily take flight. I can more readily tap into my creativity.
I believe that to be true, but I have no proof to justify that belief.
And so, after a couple of crazy days of work flying at me almost faster than I can handle it, I have decided that I have to let go of those things I cant’ control. I’ve done what I can.
And now it’s time to get back to work – I have one more interview to do and one more feature to finish this evening. And then I will kick back and relax completely.
It could just be that a little bit (or a lot) of chaos is good for the soul. (although I admit freely that I like a bit of order in my chaos).
