Good Morning girls! So very pleased with my weekend, the weather was gorgeous here, my husband and I went to sunbathe on the beach yesterday. I love the seaside in September, fewer tourists, not so terribly hot, generally quieter, the cuddling rythmic sound of the small waves on the shore, we even had a delicious fish lunch at a quite cheap price. It was blissful, and we both felt we couldn’t afford to miss even the smallest sunshine ray, thinking at the coming winter.
I needed the weekend to relax and refocus, as this is a terribly busy period, a lot of projects and things going on, and just no time for everything. Sometimes I wonder whether I’ll remember to breathe in /breath out. It feels so daunting that each time I start to make a plan I feel as if I were staring a wild monster in the eyeballs. It is so disturbing. And telling myself that it is feels awful, and allowing myself to confront how bad I feel about being so overwhelmed makes things actually a bit easier. I allow myself to admit that I feel overwhelmed, and give myself permission to acknowledge this as a starting point to move on. So now I feel ready to go back (commuting back to worktown as I write this) and start again with a clear head. Trying to put Lakein’s ideas to practice. Starting with the most eminent among my priorities and trying to postpone or delegate everything else.
