A Lot of Tilting.

I have spent my morning in a place of randomness.
Reorganizing the liquor cabinet.
Reframing a family picture.
Five times.
Moving the clock to a different wall.
Four times.
Rearranging framed artwork.
Six times.

My friend told me to prioritize.
And none of this is a priority.

Just when I thought I was getting used to my current level of tilted-ness... 
The doctor delivers news that I didn't want. 
And now I am suffering from a lot of tilting... 

My body is weak. 
My mind is lost.
My heart hurts.
My spirit is confused.

And I am afraid. And this is what I do.
Random acts. Busy work. Mindless behaviors.
To try and get my footing on this tilting ground.

I need to take my friend's advice.
Pray. Cry. Exercise. Sleep. Read. Write. Ask for help. Pray more.
To try and get my footing on this tilting ground.

  1. If doing the random work brings you relief, than by all means, do it. I'm a big believer in finding stress relief wherever it may be. Some people drink. I go to the movies. (OK, I drink, sometimes, too).

    But, you have to do something to find some peace. You're climbing up hill right now, Jil. You need some help. Wish I were there to give it to you.
