Some Thoughts #60

    Lately I have felt like I’m on a treadmill that is being turned faster and faster.  I can’t shake this feeling that I can’t get my shit together; that I can’t catch up with myself.  It’s a case of taking on more and more -- pushing myself further and never letting go of anything.  It’s a problem that I have always had and this time around I attribute it to being in the same place for long enough to have taken on a lot.
