Jumpy Lately

I’ve noticed I’m a lot jumpier lately than I used to be. Not something over just a few weeks either, it’s been over a number of months now. Car horns, loud noises, and other things like that make me jump a little bit now, where they used to have little or no effect on me at all.

I wonder if it’s because I’m more relaxed and at peace now, where before I was so high-strung and tense that nothing really could get a jump out of me. Perhaps I’m more attentive to the world around me instead of staying in my little shell and ignoring everybody and everything around me.

Interesting side effect, I suppose. I haven’t figured out yet if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. I guess I’m less likely to get run over by a bus now. *laugh*
