We’ve had snow here this week, which has been really pretty.
I went out walking with my son today, and held his hand to make sure he didn’t slip over, as it was icy in places.
And as we came to a patch of ice on the path, I deliberately walked on the safe, non-icy part.
Today I wanted to share some questions I wrote for The Bullish Society (where I'm a freelance coach), on wrapping up 2020, and planning for 2021 - as much as we can.
I haven't blogged for a while.
Partly due to time, but also because I got all in my head about how my blog posts weren't any good... (full disclosure there!)
Keeping pesky thoughts in check is an ongoing process :)
I finally managed to kick those thoughts aside, and I'm back... with a short post, and a new program announcement... woo hoo!
For a while, I've been getting up early before my son and husband are awake, to have time to myself and get things done (hooray!)
If I'm lucky, I get two or three hours (they are long sleepers!)
But sometimes my son wakes up early, and then I have an hour or less to do my work.
An out-of-control to-do list...
Like lots of people, I have many, many tasks I want to get done:
I’ve been making a concerted effort to take care of myself recently:
Monthly massages, physio for some post-pregnancy stomach issues, and planning an Indian head massage when they open after covid...
The blog post I wrote last week obviously hit a chord (which is funny, because I didn’t think it was one of my better ones. *Note to self: we are not always the best judges of our own work!)
I've been feeling overwhelmed recently. I'm sure many of you know that feeling ;)
I have so much to do, and so many to-do lists... it got to the point that even when I did have a few spare minutes, I didn't know where to start.
My two-year-old has recently got into doing jigsaw puzzles... he loves them!
I had to help him at first, but now he can do a few (small) puzzles on his own.
Every now and then, however, he'll struggle to fit a piece in, and he has a big old temper tantrum.
One of my clients has been working through a difficult issue this week, and we’ve been messaging back and forth.
We got her to a much better place (hooray!), with action steps to take. Her last message to me simply said:
“I appreciate you.”
