Processing backlog

The benefit of taking a holiday away from "everyday life" is that the break allows me to process a backlog of experiences and thoughts.

And that is a healthy thing.

What is not healthy is when that becomes the only time I get to process and make sense of life.

I try to fiercely protect my ability to process. By only processing my stuff and not doing other's work. By having strong boundaries. By only ever doing what I want to do, without any obligations.

I try to keep my processing as up to date as possible.
Once it slips, that backlog gets out of hand quite fast.
