On not being able to work

Hi there - Here's the deal.
I've been outta commission with a back injury for almost a month now - hence the lack o' posts.
Am finally feeling better and am back at the drawing board.

The hardest thing for me in the last couple weeks was not the pain - it was not being able to work.  Not being able to check off a DONE list. Not being able to produce something at the end of the day to justify my existence. (Can you tell I went to Catholic school?) I finally had to drag out this quote from Jason Swartzman to remind myself that it's ok to take a pause sometimes. :-) If you're a guilt ridden workaholic I hope you'll find comfort in it as I did.

ps. More of my favourite quotes here.

So glad to hear you're on the mend.I'm just a fan and yet my maternal knack of worrying kicks in when the bloggers I follow are absent for awhile.(silly me)

Back pain is like a constant stick in the eye. Your comments resonated with me and I love the quote!
Cheers, K

There is a time for output and a time for input. They're mutually dependent. Glad you're on the mend too, Alanna. ~ A xo
