I Got This Covered, Or Maybe Not

They say the way you do one thing is how you do everything. Well, I guess it comes as no surprise then, that in working on a book which is in large part about impulsive decisions I made in dating, I found myself struggling with impulsivity in the designing of its cover.

The website said it would take about one hour to complete the cover design profile. It had already taken me an hour-and-a-half, and I really wanted to finish it. I could have just saved it and continued it over the weekend, but I didn’t want that open-ended feeling in my heart, so I prematurely completed it. I also, in part, blame my office space. With its artificial lighting and four-wall enclosure, it has a way of sucking me into a soulless state of productivity, in which I am even more out of touch with my breath and inner voice; not helpful for an already anxiety-prone person such as myself.

So this morning, I am awaiting a call from the self-publishing company to pick up the pieces of the mini mess I made last Friday and get everything back on track. Hopefully, it is reparable—unlike some of my past dating decisions…
