Finny’s pose sums up how I feel right now: wiped out. Life is mostly back to normal, yet it still feels as if we just moved in and still have boxes to unpack. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, so it’s difficult for me to live with things out of place, but I’ve forced myself to take it one day at a time.
A friend shared with me that the second law of thermodynamics helped her with the same problem. Basically, there’s only one way for things to be in order, but infinite ways for things to be out of place. It’s a never-ending battle, a continuum … so you never have to finish it. This goes against my nature, but it’s a helpful thing to think about when I feel overwhelmed by chaos.
