I have been experiencing inertia today, a disinclination to move or act. I have been sitting here, knowing that there are things on my 'to-do' list and I have done nothing. I know that I will feel better if I do something, but still nothing. Why does this happen sometimes? I know that I am not the only one to ever feel like this. So I have decided to explore the feeling and see where it takes me.
When I settle into the feeling, I notice that I am tired, weary even. I have spent an emotionally and physically demanding 3 days. I met many people and listened intently and talked about painful issues. I was rarely alone. This is unusual in my life.
I notice a silence in my mind. I learned many things over the last few days. It seems that I am digesting what I have learned. My life may change as a result of these last few days...
This is IT then! My inertia feels just like that moment when a swimmer pauses on the high diving board, flexes her toes and then jumps to fall into a graceful deep dive.
