I.am.exhausted. + week(s) reflection

What can the redwoods tell us about ourselves? Well, I think they can tell us something about human time. The flickering, transitory quality of human time and the brevity of human life — the necessity to love. ~Richard Preston

Me on March 1: Phew, this month is going to be crazy. Before I know it, it’s going to be April.

Me on March 31: Yep.

I knew March was going to be a whirlwind by the looks of my calendar, but I significantly underestimated the level of exhaustion I would feel on its final day. A weekend in the mountains, three full days of team meetings (followed by team dinners), a work trip to Phoenix and a family vacation in California were the primary norm disruptions — and would have been enough on their own to cause said exhaustion — but, just for good measure, I sprinkled in a few big presentations, meet-ups with friends, a concert, beer brewing, many wedding tasks, battling a cold and whatever else I’m forgetting. Oh, and a big promotion. So, yeah, that was March.

Needless to say, I’m really looking forward to all of the blank April days I currently see on my calendar. Now, to just stick to my guns in making sure those days stay free — especially in the wake of May and June, which are sure to bring even more craziness leading up to our big day. Is it July yet?
