I do not “process” personal information quickly. Personal would mean anything that applies to me.
I am a total travel chameleon; when I travel, I am totally present wherever I am. Don’t call home, don’t think about home – isn’t that a good reason to take trips in the first place? I wish I could process everything else so completely, so quickly, but, alas …. I am very challenged.
In a perfect world, whatever change is coming would be presented to me, I would have time to process it, think about what it means, what is involved, is it good or bad, and decide how I want to proceed. Not happening. Never has. Just listen and respond. Then walk around for hours, shaking my head and thinking, “What?”
Presented with another change this morning, I nodded in acceptance. Because I have to and want to. But I was also reminded what a very precarious a situation I am in. That didn’t hit me until I had a few hours to digest it. And I’ve got a rumbling case of mental indigestion. My ability to turn on a dime is not as fast as it used to be. Aghhhhhhhhhhhh!
Later. After I process a bit more. Or not.
