I am feeling this today in a big way.

Progress in the areas of life I care about the most (relationships, creativity, sanctification) is oftentimes stunningly slow, and there are days when it feel like this is bleeding into every area of my life in such a manner that I literally find it difficult to move, much less begin on any project, personal or professional… I feel this especially acutely when I am inside under fluorescent lights while it’s 73º and sunny outside after the longest winter I can remember. Time to call it a day, I think.
