Do you ever find yourself oscillating between two extremes? Fear and confidence? Apathy and love?
Last week, thanks to finals, all I could do was live at school, study, and eat unhealthy food. Since I've been home, all I can do is sleep, watch television, and eat unhealthy food.
Perhaps I need these days of "nothing" to recover from my days saturated with "somethings." I think I make the mistake of piling too much on my plate and then allowing it all to drown me.
I'm realizing it boils down to one flaw: I suck at doing nothing. It's an art form that I need to cultivate. When I'm in front of the television, I feel like I should be writing. When I'm perusing blogs, I feel like I should be studying. There's always something.
Stress, like beauty, might be in the eye of the beholder. Learning how to say no, not caring as much about what other people are going to say, and devoting myself to causes I believe in can all help me live in that space between extremes. A space I can make a home in.
