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!)
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.”
I was staying with my in-laws last year, and my father-in-law’s phone was lying next to me on the table.
A message came through, and his phone buzzed loudly.
I looked over without thinking. And, as the phone wasn’t locked, I happened to see the message...
As I mentioned last week, I don't have a ton of time to myself right now.
I have a toddler, and my business, and we've just moved house - and I'm still looking for random things that disappeared in the move... :)
I haven’t written a blog post for a while... I’ve wanted to, but have had a busy few weeks.
And this reminds me of a concept I came across recently with a client.
The leader of a Facebook group I'm in asked recently:
“What are you looking forward to next week?”
We all know that things are weird right now... I don’t need to tell you that!
It’s easy to feel down with everything that’s going on around us – especially when most of us can’t see friends and family in person.
So I thought I’d share tools I’ve been using to pick myself up, while my usual methods of cheering myself up are off limits.
I went to a “gratitude and calligraphy” workshop at the weekend.
We reflected on our year... and then wrote some of our key words in calligraphy (in case you wondered how the two connected!)
Last week I bought myself a sticker book (yes, an adult sticker book!), and I’ve been “stickering” most nights.
