Gratitude Journal February – Connections

A post I have worried about. Reading it through, do I sound like a sociopath? And yet I wonder if this resonates with anyone, whether I am not alone? Even if it doesn’t, maybe it helps you understand someone close to you. And regardless, I write these posts to understand myself. Relationships are a positive…

Making sense of sensitivity

How do you feel when more than one person talks to you at once, or there is lots of background noise? How do you feel when you have to make decisions with multiple choices, or need to respond to messages and emails? How do you feel when you are in a busy space? Paying the…

Describe yourself…

How do you describe yourself? Is it about your roles or jobs, your appearance, what you like or dislike, or something else? Some descriptors are easier to use…mother, wife…They are based on fact, rather than anything else.

What I learned from NOT writing

My to-do list doesn’t yet seem to be shrinking, despite the back to school breathing space of the past week. As fast as I cross things off, more gets added. So I have decided to write instead. The prerogative of a mother with children out of the house. I spent my summer putting off writing,…

Gratitude Journal #4

This week my gratitude has to be dedicated to my birthday. Not only was I spoiled by my family and friends but also it demonstrated something greater to me – the power of positivity. I woke up on Friday morning to three excited girls who just wanted to be kind and generous to their Mummy,…

The world is my oyster

I do rather find clichés…, well, clichéd, but I have to admit the world is my oyster. This week is proving a little tough, for various reasons. Interestingly when this little saying popped up in my head, I wondered if I fully understood the idiom, and if it could really be applied to me. But…

Back to the old skool

A little while ago I wrote about how ‘stuff’ and decluttering made me feel. Since then I have been travelling a little way down the road of becoming unburdened. I aim to write in depth about whether I manage all that I want in that respect another time. But this week I found something in…
