For my birthday I was given a great new 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 and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.
I feel a bit of a fraud this week, writing a post about feeling calm when I have been far from it. I have been tired, irritable, overwhelmed and over stretched and this resulted in my completely loosing it with the little one yesterday which needless to say made feel super shitty. This week more so than most I have felt the burden of everything lay on me, my immediate support system is not the best and I need to admit this and reach out more.
I’ve been trying everything I can to help me maintain some semblance of calm, writing my journal, meditating when I get a chance, which isn’t as much as I’d like or need, walking and trying to go to bed at a good time, but ultimately returns to one thing, time. So I need to get a lot better at managing it, so I have time, time for me, 10 minutes a day shouldn’t be so hard to find, I just need to make sure I do it as it sure as hell isn’t going to be given to me.
Importantly there have been lovely things this week so here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
