Stop the World I Want to Get Off

This was a musical in the sixties and pretty much sums up my life these days. Too much that I must do. Too much that I want to do. Too many conflicting emotions. I want to be the good girl and do the things I must, all the while my dreams are calling. I absolutely know there is great contentment in accomplishing anything and yet my head spins, I flit from one thing to the next and accomplish nothing. Neither my work nor my dreams are getting a fair shake.

What I need is a private vacation from life. I don’t mean lying in a hammock on a beach somewhere for a couple weeks, signalling to the cabana boy to refresh my drink. What I need is for the world to stop for two weeks–for everything to freeze. Everything except me and my computer, that is. I want absolutely uninterrupted time to get the stuff done that I need to do in order to meet business deadlines and to have some time to follow my dreams too.

Imagine what it would be like if a single second passed for the rest of the world, but in that second you had the time you needed to accomplish everything on your to-do list.

If you could have a vacation like this would you take it?

    YES!! Oh my gosh, Ceci, I am laughing so hard at your post, because I feel the same at this very moment. And actually, I would take 24 hours! Bliss….

    Thanks for the break and laughter today! xoxo

    I would settle for 24 hours, but 2 weeks, might just about take care of it all! 😉
