I noticed it most recently when I had to take a week off to let my body wrestle with a bad head cold.
I was fielding phone calls from clients, sitters, students, one TV producer, a teacher and one studio owner who is hosting one of my appearances.
Once well enough, I meandered into my studio to find the usual pile of stuff waiting for my attention...when I caught site of a pile of papers...they were actually certificates that I had been awarded in workshops where I had completed courses of study and hadn't taken the time to frame. As I looked at each one, I felt a sense of both pride and exhaustion...I had worked for hours over the course of months to receive the information and skills each piece do paper represented,but I don't recall taking the time to experience the joy that came with each accomplishment. i have caught myself again pushing myself so hard that I almost missed putting ME on 'the list'. No wonder I caught a cold! Ive been burning my candles at both ends AND in the middle,
Time for me to take better care of myself...put my education to its best use and buy more frames for those certificates!
