Musings [228 words]

We’re all living with a little more jealously in the social media world.

If I owe you an email, phone call, or any kind of correspondence I am probably tardy in responding, and I apologize. I can’t quite place where it comes from, but more and more I’ve overcome with this anxiety of keeping up with messages, getting back to everyone and just trying to fulfill all the incoming requests. Some of the messages aren’t very involved at all, but there is still a sense of overwhelment, nearly paralying with this overflow of unanswered messages.

Am I fearful that I’m going to disappoint someone? Am I worried that I’m in trouble? Am I worried that I won’t have the answers? Is it just a matter of being introverted and shy? Am I simply intimidated? There’s almost this fear that one message is going to send everything crashing apart. I fear that I’ll be exposed, that I’m just a hack when everyone else has their %$?@ together.

I am feeling completely overwhelmed, and have been at this plateau for quite some time. I’ve been faking it ‘til I make it for the last dozen years, sometimes crossing my fingers for a break. My world of tiny little projects may never pay off.

Who am I going to let down today?

I can’t wait for Email Debt Forgiveness Day.


Fuel more Sunrises

There is plenty more to come from Year of the Sunrise. You can always add a cup of coffee to keep me going strong in the mornings, or a tank of gas to get me to some new places, as the sun keeps rising.
