I basically haven’t been home in over a month, with the exception of a few random nights here and there, just to sleep.
I travel and perform with a band for a living, and while that sounds like nothing but glamorous fun, it is really quite taxing on the mind, body, and spirit. Add a bipolar brain in the equation, along with little sleep and hours on the road eating gas station food, and it’s a recipe for exhaustion (and possibly a depressive episode.)
It has taken all of the vitality I have to stay present in my life these past couple of months. I haven’t had the energy or the words for a blog post in a while.
The good news is that I can feel myself coming back to life.
Sometimes I forget that my brain that needs extra care.
Sometimes I have to recommit myself to taking better care of myself (monthly…sometimes weekly).
Sometimes I take a two month hiatus from my blog because I am too busy to breathe and have forgotten to do the things that make me feel most alive.
Hey…I’m a work in progress, guys.
