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.”
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...
I haven’t written a blog post for a while. (Anyone else feel like they’re moving through mud with COVID?!)
We moved house a few weeks ago, and I underestimated how busy it would be. And how much stuff we have :)
I’ve had some other things going on as well...
Today I want to talk about success.
Because so often we think of success as the BIG things:
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?”
There’s a lot of fear and panic in the world right now, which I understand.
I’m a pretty optimistic person, but even I’ve found myself dwelling on the future and feeling confused and down about things from time to time.
So I wanted to share a guide to surviving tough times... for when things feel confusing and out of our control, or when we’re not sure what will happen next.
