Sometimes I feel just like a gerbil running around and around on his wheel. The insanity of it all can be overwhelming. Why must I continue to struggle, just to catch my breath?
Often my life is put on hold so that the needs of others are met. Time for me is viewed as selfish and insensitive – definitely not a priority.
Oh how I long to purge this nonsense from my life, to regain the freedom of time. But what would that take? An exorcist? An undercover covert escape plan? Maybe just some self imposed boundaries rest my wary soul.
This is day one of a little project I am doing with a friend as we explore our fourth decade of life. My prompt was to use the three words: nonsense, exorcist and insensitive and to begin my prompt with: “Sometimes I feel just like a gerbil running around and around on his wheel.” And, because I like a good challenge, all my prompts will be 100 words. Bring on the fun!
