Balance, Dear Grasshopper

Soooo...a while back I posted about trying new things. Improv classes, poker night, etc. I think I focused so much on filling my life up with stuff that I forgot about the all-important balance aspect of life. And now I'm feeling a little overextended. However, the play I'm stage managing is almost closed (9 more performances), improv class is over - I have a feeling that I'm going to go from over-extended to under-extended. And then I'm going to fill my life up with stuff once again. The glass is never half full/half empty - it's either filled to the brim or has only a drop in it. I think maybe one of my resolutions for next year, and one thing that I will start to chant for, is balance.

But what will I bitch about if I'm not completely overextended, overwhelmed and under-rested?

I'm sure I'll find something.

I hear you on this one, grasshopper! I feel the press of time, and end up working, working, working at such a furious pace that I don't have much left to work *with* sometimes! But we do need some downtime. Need to give ourselves permission to have that.

Hugs from your playwright!
