An interlude is the space in between. Yesterday, I fell into one. It was the happiest of accidents. I lay in this mental space between all the “I wants” and “I don’t haves” and realized that just laying in the interlude was enough.
I hadn’t seen this interlude before I fell in it. I’d been thinking about all I didn’t get done during the day. I’d started to scold myself for not doing more, for not being more organized, for not fully seizing the day. Then, I suddenly realized that listing all I didn’t do hid all that I did. I decided to look at what I had accomplished. I decided it was okay to feel satisfied. It didn’t mean that there weren’t other things that I could have done. It didn’t mean that I utilized all the minutes of the day at maximum efficiency. It just meant that I could enjoy the feeling of satisfaction based on what I had accomplished.
