My word of the week this week has been tough, its been an odd week so I want to use change, but I have used that for a couple of times lately so feel it’s not enough. I am so very happy in my life but feel like I have an element of uncertainty in it at the moment, and I just don’t know how to deal with it. I know what I want to do, but I need a long-term plan, an outcome, and there you have it, I need a crystal ball. So for my weekly round-up I decided to do a little self-evaluation.
I have always been a driven, measured person. Known what I am doing and where I am going, and at the moment I feel in limbo, just not sure what to do for the best. But one thing is for sure when I am sat at 85 in my rocking chair I do not want to look back and think, “I should have taken that risk.”
But what is a risk? My family and friends are happy and healthy we have a great life, I feel so lucky, so anything around that is not as important is it?
But all the time I think about change, I am trying to change other elements of my life this week I tried to change my blog, I was lucky enough that I have some wonderful honest friends who told me no, step away from the blog. I have decided to re decorate the lounge before Christmas, ordered a new sofa, brought new clothes, today I am looking a new hair colours. As soon as I did that I realised, I have a life itch. I only change my hair colour when I am restless. I have been running around trying to change all the things I can control grr.
The only problem with life itches is sometimes you need patience. Knee jerk reactions don’t always help. In a way other people are in control of my destiny at the moment and I need all those people to stop procrastinating and make a decision, then I can make mine. But until then god only knows what I will look like next time you see at the rate I keep changing, my hair could be blue.
Just so you don’t think I am all doom and gloom ha ha, here is what made me happy this week.
My very first ski lesson with Chris and Joe ( Jack was of skiing on his own) more to come on this but I loved skiing.
Finally finishing Joe’s homework, he gets so much and hates doing but we worked together and got through it. And I let him use my desk!
Meeting up with my lovely friends Louise and Janine, and beautiful god-daughter Suzie and eventually meeting the very cute baby Joey.
Planning our half term Q Lodge Visit. All very exciting.
Planning our new lounge and choosing furnishings, I cant wait to get it finished, although we have to start first.
Sometimes writing it down makes you better, and yes, getting it off my chest has made me feel much more positive. All I need to do is chill and wait. Rome was not built in a day.
And this week in the quest for organisation and healthy eating I have been trying to take my lunch to work, and am loving the versatility of my beautiful Monbento bento box I have seriously fallen in love with this range and am slowly building up a stylish little collection.
The MB Original is perfect for taking to work as I can enjoy healthy hot meals at work as the MB classic is microwave safe. It also has a compartment for fruit so stops me nipping to the canteen and buying unhealthy meals.
