That feeling you are “circling the drain.”
For some it signifies the end. For others it signifies being on the brink of a new beginning. And for others still it means the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning or, for extreme pessimists, the end of the end.
For me, though, it feels more like an extreme sport. Hangin’ 10. From near the drain. At least some days. Like today.
Some days I feel like I am hitting on all cyclinders and am a masterfully mindful multi-tasking maniac.
Other days I feel like my brain is operating aduquately for a 1963 model.
And every now and again it seems concerningly quiet and uneventful up there –like I am mentally moving at the speed of the video game Pong. And my side forgot to show up.
“I’m way deep into nothing special”
How I feel today (quoting Steely Dan, West of Hollywood)
Look, I get it. It’s not my post. You just aren’t in the mood to “like” something right now.
“It’s not personal; it’s just business.”
Really means for the person hearing this that it is no longer “business” and just became “just personal.”
Groups, ironically, seem to be the best place for us to learn how to be better individuals
