Hello lovelies! I have neglected you the last few weeks and that makes me feel a tad sad. I have let myself get a little filled up in the mind department – too many thoughts and worrying about how everyone else in the house is managing their demands and I have become quite distracted. The pages in my book aren’t being flicked quite as quickly, not as many sketches are appearing in my sketchbook and I’ve been struggling to find a new creative project. I need to take a bit of a step back and let the mental chatter settle. Do you ever have the same feeling?
I headed to yoga today and did a slower paced, less strenuous class than my normal one. I quite like doing that. It’s nice to have the time to focus on the simple, basic poses rather than tackling the super challenging ones. Lots of breathing and, at least for that hour and a bit, the mind did have a bit of a breather.
On the way home I stopped off for a coffee and sat in the park. I had my book with me but I didn’t open the pages. It was nice just to sit for a little while, to look at the city buildings, watch the walkers, the children in the playground, the gambolling dogs. A chance to press ‘pause’. And then the phone flashed. From my girl. ‘Can you drop Persuasion at school?’ Time to hit ‘play’.
How are you faring at the moment? Do you have everything sitting nicely in balance or are the scales a bit lopsided?
