Feeling Calm #159

For my birthday a couple of years ago I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

Things have been a bit better this week. The sun is shining and I have been making a conscious effort to look after myself, it’s been worth it. I know I’ve a tough time ahead, since we got a new manager at work we’ve had two team members hand in their notice. We’re a team of 5 including our manager. It’s about to get rocky, but there’s nothing I can do about that. Just got to stay positive.

Here are my top ten moments from the last week:

Well, well, well it’s been a week. Everything was plodding along nicely then it all imploded. It’s always fun to be the focus of a family argument that results in tears and people walking out of a cafe without paying. I’m not handling things particularly well at the moment, but this is my happy place, so we won’t dwell on it again.

Here are my top ten moments from the last couple of weeks:

It’s been a bit manic with the kid back at school. He’s taken a while to settle back into it and been a bit of a monster in the evenings, a horrid mix of mentally exhausted but not physically tired. Bedtimes have been taxing to say the least.

Here are my top ten moments from the last week:

I’ve had a nice week and have been able to enjoy the last week of the Easter Holidays with the kid. We’ve all had some time off and were able to do some lovely family things and make the most of the good weather.

I’ve come to realise over the last few years of blogging that my blog is a very good way to judge how my mental health is doing. Regular posts, happy and upbeat. Missing the personal posts but up to date with reviews and paid work, need a bit of self care. Not writing at all, I’m struggling and need help.

So I didn’t write this last week, not because I hadn’t had anything good happen. I did. But mainly because so many bad things had happened I just wasn’t writing at all.

Today has not been a good day, but today also isn’t part of the last 7 days, which were, on the whole pretty good. I need to concentrate on some self care a bit more, but otherwise it’s been a lovely week.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Half Term was amazing. We had the best time, it was so chilled out and just lovely. Both L and I have been a bit sad now he’s back at school but we’ll soon get back in the groove of it all.

I still haven’t got that balance quite right at the moment, things are improving but life can be a struggle at times! I didn’t even do my round up last week, so it’s good to be back. At least it’s half term and I’ve got my kid back for a few days of fun.
