Patting myself on the back

One of the side benefits of the way I put my various projects on pause before Xmas is only coming to light now.

I don’t feel rushed to get back at things.

Most of the time, between Xmas and New Years I feel like I *should* be trying to get stuff done. I usually have this feeling like I have tucked things away into a rickety pile and if I don’t get back to it soon it will fall.

This year, though, I seem to have done a better job of convincing my brain to take a break and those tasks aren’t just held at bay, they are actually paused.

Instead of feeling like I am somehow cheating and hiding from my work, I feel like it is calmly on hold.

I should probably make some clear notes on how I did this so I can do it again.
