I went to bed last night fighting off a cold and woke up today with no voice. After a fantastic weekend of family and friends, I needed a day to regain my strength and get my health back. There is always a lot of guilt for me in calling in sick because I feel like I am letting down my team. But my body needs healing, and I am no good to anyone if I cannot even speak. The only good thing that comes from being sick is a chance to catch up on the blog.
He is then sent to a different part of the forest, where a the same lovely table of food and bounty sits. At this table, the patrons also can only use the 5 foot chopsticks. These people use the chopsticks not to feed themselves, but to feed each other. The teamwork is peaceful, the table is in order, and no food is wasted. This is heaven.
Cooperation and teamwork is such a tricky thing. I have never been great with boundaries and often struggle with either not asking for help, or trying to help people so much it is overbearing or I get taken advantage of. It is my goal for 2011 to bring the chopsticks to the table and feed others, but making sure I get fed as well.
