After a string of amazing weeks it only seems fitting that things have gone terribly wrong. Having lost a major client I’m facing the very real possibility that I’ll have to return to work for a bit and put a pause on my Work from Home dream. Especially as my car has started making some very worrying and most likely expensive sounds. So it has been extra important to carry on with my gratitude journal. I need to stay focused. Remain calm and keep my balance.

So here are my top 10 moments from the past 7 days; Continue reading Feeling Calm #27

Today has been a busy boring day but this week has been amazing! Spending time with friends, meeting idols, some amazing weather and perfect days out. So it has been hard picking just ten moments.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks, I’ve been completely disorganised which is why I didn’t write up my favourites last week but I’ve been busy having a lot of fun.

It’s been a funny old week. There have been summer colds and grumpiness all round. A tired toddler and a tired mummy is not a mix made in heaven. We’ve had some fun though.

So I spent Monday and Tuesday in Bavaria for the BenQ GS1 Launch, it was amazing and I had the best time. I also got to travel somewhere new, something I love to do. Meet new people, which is daunting for me, but they were such really lovely people I shouldn’t have worried.

It’s crazy that last week whilst I was writing this I felt overwhelmed and stressed, today I’m feeling completely in control, happy and calm. I know that I have got this.

A simple household chore list has seemingly changed my life! That’s another story for another day though. I’m really excited about my trip to Bavaria next week for the BenQ GS1 Launch. Getting a little bit of time to myself is exactly what I need to cement this new found feeling of control.

It’s clear to me that since I have started practising mindfulness and keeping a journal that I have been able to control my emotions a lot better. I notice if my depression is getting triggered sooner. Allowing me to deal with it before it gets a hold of me.

This week I’ve felt rather stressed and behind with things work wise, as for actual paid work I’m not behind at all, blog reviews I’m not quite where I want to be but equally I’m not being chased so it can’t be that bad but blogging the personal things I want to write about I’m not even close.

I know things have to be prioritised and my blog should just be a bit of fun so I shouldn’t be stressing about it, but that’s just the kind of person I am. So today the boy is at nursery and I’m sat out in the garden and planning to catch up a bit.

It’s weeks like this where I have really noticed how my Mindfulness practises really help, I take 15 minutes out of my evening to write down one thing that made me feel calm, one thing I’m grateful for and my top three moments of the day. This focuses my mind on the positives and makes me feel happier, it also allows me to see trends and invariably my calm moments are going cycling, walking or cuddling with my boy, so I know I need to do a lot more of that. I also take 20 minutes a day to meditate, which is tough when I feel I’m behind on things, but I do it anyway and I feel amazing and way more productive afterwards.

This week has certainly been a come down after our holiday, with a toddler who has just been unbelievably tired, both the other half and I being so busy with work and just getting back into our routines whilst dealing with some really horrible weather has not been fun.

It’s not all be bad though, here are my top 10 moments from the past 7 days;

We were in Devon all of last week, so I didn’t write my top ten last Wednesday. I’ve been toying with a catch up top 20 this week, just missing a week or doing a top ten from the last 14 days and that is what I have opted for.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks, going away takes up so much time, getting work done before hand, being shattered afterwards. Dealing with everything whilst you are away but without the home comforts. It can be draining but ultimately, we had fun and it was worth it, although there were times during the holiday I may not have said that!

Here are my top 10 moments from the past 14 days;

Oh my word wasn’t the weather over the weekend AMAZING, if anything was going leave me calm and happy it was a hot weekend filled with splashy paddling pool fun, a few ciders and a BBQ at my sister’s. I’m slightly concerned that we’ve used up all the good weather though, we’re off to Devon at the weekend and last year we got the worst weather, this year I would at least like it to be dry.
