Having spent most of my waking hours over the last two weeks working on the new website, in order to get it out into the world as quickly as possible, I now have to figure out how to calm down. Filling your time with work for two weeks straight changes the way you look at the world, and makes it difficult to relax. When the website finally went live and was debugged (for the most part) by Saturday afternoon, I had to forcibly stop myself from reaching for the computer every ten minutes to do more work. Although, it's great that, as humans, we're able to adapt to different conditions so quickly, it's also dangerous it you value balance.
What's worse is that I can't figure out if my routine is so comforting, then why do I stray from it when I get sick or busy? Why did I start drinking coffee when I was sick and now am back to having no interest in it? Isn't it typical to look for comfort food when you're sick, not foods you typically dislike?
And this is how it all comes back to donuts. Donuts are a food I enjoy, when sick, busy or going about my normal routine. And it's important to have certain elements of your life that are centering, even if those elements themselves have no center.
We are constantly changing and adapting but the simple things, the constants (like donuts and loved ones) are the things that help keep us balanced, that drag us back from the edge of darkness (like 100 hour work weeks). So remember how important donuts are and check out our new family law and mediation website, with circle designs inspired by, you guessed it, donuts.
