Hammering in the background

Daily headaches for some weeks.
Not the migraine kind,
but the softly hammering away in the back of your head kind.

More editing work on the computer,
and the need for glasses.

Now I’m better.

After some days I feel open again
for new goals, new adventures, new ideas.

There are often reasons,
softly hammering away in the background,
that undermine your goals, plans and energy.

Instead of more discipline or
a renewed dedication or
‘just keep walking’,
you need to do something about
the hammering in the background.
