Just over here drinking from the well

Many days now I sit around with my tongue in my mouth, content with silence. I am doing everything I know to do to replenish the energy I spent this year but since I expended so much across so many different areas without proper introvert recharging time, the process is slow and will simply require time and space. 

It's difficult to come back from a place of depleted energy. This is why I work so hard to never get to that place and why I am so protective of my energy and personal capital. This year was a challenge for me from beginning to end on the energy front. Some years are like that, though I haven't had one for a long time. As we near the end of this one, I am impatient with myself to rebuild my energy because I don’t feel like me when I'm on empty. It feels like I've lost my edge and the essence of what makes me me.

But it's one of those things that takes time and space and grace and can't be rushed. So time and space and grace and drinks from my well are my gifts to myself this holiday season. I am at the top of my list without guilt. 

After I wrote this I saw my friend Manhan post this and it spoke to me. Maybe it speaks to you too.
