My doctor came into the exam room and commented right away.
“You’re looking relaxed, casual. Are you working from home today, are you on vacation … Off?”
“I’m off-off.” I replied. “Off-off, as in not working, as in taking a break…”
“Wow-I could really tell! You’re usually in such a rush, on the phone, in between the meetings, checking your calendar for when you’re in town , asking me if I can rush things …”
“Well, I had to cancel my last couple of appointments with you due to work…”
“Yes,I know -glad you finally made it. Good for you -it looks good on you!”
The change in me is glaringly apparent even to people that I don’t see on a regular basis.
I think it’s a good thing.
