Its been a while

Its been a while since i’ve been able to do what i did today…..i chilled….

The last few days have been extremely stressful….to the point of excruciating physical and mental pain…..to the point where the mind and body are aching to shut down…..and you need to stun yourself into keeping awake and alert for if you don’t ‘mountains will shake and the heavens will fall’. Well, nothing quite so dramatic but there would surely be one hell of a pissed off client…..:P

Started off with a phone call at approximately 4 odd p.m. on a boring and lazy Monday in Court, where i was waiting to be heard and my only mandate was to ensure that the Counsel appointed would show up on time (which of course, he didn’t!). That call resulted in me having the most insane 36 hours beginning thereafter. Rushed into office, picked up papers, rushed home, packed a bag, rushed to the airport and managed to catch the last flight into the capital……arrived well past midnight and started meetings immediately, which lasted through the night and thorugh the next day…..where, we managed to ward off any negative effects for the client.

The hardest part, as i saw it, was the ability to stay focussed on the job at hand. It was so easy to simply throw in the towel and say ‘fu$k it’ and bear the consequences but that was simply not an option. Putting the head down and getting the job done was the need of the hour and it was done.

The resulting calm has left me appreciating the calm after the storm even more…..was surprised into a fantastic massage, decided to take some time to myself and had a great siesta followed by a long walk…..and a looooong hot shower. After which, a glass of red was just what the doctor ordered and right now, i’m feeling no pain.
Until i get the next phone call….;)

He took your soul
You’re hurt inside
