When I started thinking about the topic of this post the first thing that came to my mind was ‘I’m Back….. again!’, then I thought ‘AGAIN?!’ !!
My blog, and my life, like many of you I believe, is a series of running and halting, you run when you can but you can’t keep running because there is always something to stop you. This blog for me is a project, but unlike my other projects it runs with my freedom and doesn’t take it away from me, in other words, when you see it active then I’m free and when it stops it means I’m tied up. For this reason, every now and then you see a post talking about the subject of me being ‘Back’ which is a good reason to get me start feeling irritated :mad:.
But then, it’s natural, isn’t it? We all get so involved in life that we forget to really take care of ourselves and maybe have some fun. During the last two or three months I was up to my nose with my MA dissertation, by the dissertation itself not by writing it, and there is a big difference. Days, or even weeks, would pass without writing or reading a word related to the dissertation, but like a tooth pain I still feel it even if I’m trying to do the things I enjoy. There are many things in life which have the same effect, any project that we feel obliged to do within a deadline can suck the life out of us.
Most of the times you can’t run away from an obligation, because that would be wrong, an obligation after all is defined as ‘The act of binding oneself by a social, legal, or moral tie.’ I was choked by this moral tie (along with an unshakeable legal tie) and almost broke down because of that, but then I read a thing that really helped in lifting me up, it was one chapter of Dale Carnegie’s infamous How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, the one talking about getting rid of the boredom caused by worrying. Anyway, the most important thing is that I found out what was the problem and I got over it wal 7amdo lellah :).
Now that I did what I had to do and got myself -almost- free I’m back (Gurr!) to my blog again, and I’m going, like always, to enjoy my freedom while it lasts. You should do that too, enjoy you life while you can, you never know when you will get tied up again. Run… run while you can.
PS: I’m not posting my da Vinci counter because it hasn’t changed at all :).
