I was reminded yesterday that life is all about perspective and each our own reality.

And that too much or not enough of “something” (whatever it is) is seldom good.

For example, at the moment (and it’s been like this for a long time for me), my circumstances are such that I am home alone with no human contact for long, long stretches. I try to get out of the house and into the flow of life at least once a day. But with the extreme weather and car problems, I have been cooped up more than usual.

My “new” friend messages me yesterday:

So he picks me up and we settle in at a local coffee shop.

I thank him and explain about my cabin fever.

He replies: “Cabin fever. I wish! I’m never home long enough!”

See, he works long days and has a long commute morning and night, and when he’s not working trying to keep body and soul together, he’s helping friends renovate their house.

So he’s seldom home, and when he is, it’s just long enough to sleep, sh*t, shower and shave.

How’s the balance in YOUR life? Too much or too little of something?

Oh man, Im always fine tuning. I think Libras are always looking for that sweet spot. I honestly think I might be there in this moment, because I cant think of anything Id want to adjust.

I used to get cabin fever but I’ve really settled into life in the country. I love my home!

I don’t know about everyone else, but if I’m in my apartment for too long, I start to become cranky!

I’m never home enough but people compel me to leave like there is something wrong with me for loving being at home. The only time it gets to be too much is like when I was laid off from work for a year several years ago. That got to be too much.

I love being home.  I used to commute 70 miles a day for almost 20 years and I’m happy not to do that anymore, now that I’m retired.  It can be boring sometimes, but I wouldn’t trade it.

When I’m at home I never feel like doing anything. Don’t enjoy cooking etc.

Just want to read and sleep (but I’m not a good sleeper).

All this bothers me, I feel like I’m wasting a lot of precious time.

My work is sporadic these days, I always feel like I’m neither here nor there, floating around, waitjing for stuff to happen.

I do get enough outside stuff, but don’t see too many people except my work buddy and a friend who lives one block away & who needs company.

Hmmm. couldn’t think of any astro explanation for this, but Ah, YES: my passive Mars in Libra in 12th – sitting on a stump in the murky forest.

i think if i were a teenager /20s again i would hate to stay in. lol i needed to experience life and see people, but in an introvert way. I dont like to be around too many people. but hang out with my close friends and we have fun;  like playing board games, puzzles, dancing, playing music, drawing, all kinds of fun activities. 

now i’m older married and i just can’t stand social life. lol i can’t stand to be around too many people, still. I get headaches and i get confused, like i can’t even focus. i like that we have the internet and computers to connect to the world and not having to see anyone much …only close family/friends. lol  we can look at the world travel all over and see it without leaving our room …it’s so wonderful 😛
