52and40/31 On The Fringes

I loved this year’s Edinburgh Festival & Fringe.  It felt like mine as well as everyone else’s, for the first time.  My annual bout of imposter syndrome somehow didn’t arrive.   As my kids start to think of futures outside the city I’ve grown in mindfulness of what we have while we’re here because, as an accidental rolling stone, the sense that change is doing warm-up stretches is a twinkle in my eye.  The idea that I’ll return one day to the fringe as a tourist, sparking with happy memories, is fuel and shelter.

52and39/49 Three Times A Lady

52and39

Triple-thinking is (to me);

  1. Thinking about something and failing to make a decision.
  2. Thinking about the something again then making a decision that’s carried out with rumbling uneasiness.
  3. Regretting the decision and thinking about how I should have done it differently.

It’s an inefficient cycle I started at a time when high stress  collided with an enforced period of time on my hands and in my brain, resulting in diluted mental acuity.

I worried too much about being wrong rather than being.  Now I get more head space for doing.
