On my way to work this morning I was listening to Sugarland's song "Something More." It was my anthem when I quit my job in L.A., but it's funny how the lyrics have lost some of their poignancy to me. The song talks about being burnt out and wanting more out of life, and refers to the daily grind of working. Well guess what? Working life is GOOD. Hard to wake up? Go to bed earlier. Traffic a pain? Leave a little earlier. I am so thrilled and grateful to be a contributing member of the workforce again. I haven't done much at my new job yet--I'm still learning--but I am just rarin' to go. I'm practically begging them to let me start doing something useful. I feel like I've been wasting away these past few months and now I feel energized. Inertia is a powerful thing. It's easier for a body at rest to stay at rest, while it's easier for a body in motion to stay in motion. That law of physics is so true for life in general.
