I have been reflecting on the state of my happiness, been feeling adrift, isolated and constrained. I have pinpointed the event; the change from part-time to full time. The amount of playtime has dwindled during the weekdays and along with it the source of my greatest joy, getting lost in the woods, that I use to reset and refresh my spirit. I have not created substitutes, so I have been suffocated; the burnt end of the candlestick. Now that I am mindful of this I can begin to move forward in forging new pathways.
