Worn From The Grinding

Over the past few years, I’ve been putting in 10-14 hour workdays
almost everyday with some weekends off. I don’t know what winds my
clock but I do it anyways, day in and day out non-stop without question.
While it hasn’t given me extreme wealth that I don’t have to think twice
when it comes to getting stuff, it does take care of the obligatory bills
with some to spare for savings and some on the occasional personal
indulgences. But just like the tyres of a car, it gets worn with use. The
longer the distance you cover or the faster you drive the car or both,
the sooner the tyres get worn out. When it does wear out, it loses its
ability to function properly or worse, shit happens. Unlike the tyres of a
car though, the body isn’t something that you can replace when it gets
worn out. The only thing one can do is to nurse it and make it
usable again. I haven’t had any extended time off from the daily
grind since 1999 and I think it’s high time that I do just that before I
crash and burn. If only other people would let me though. I know that
I shouldn’t let other people dictate my personal time but I doubt I’d
be able to keep my mind off matters at hand when I’m taking those
time offs. Having a conscience can be a curse sometimes.
