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.
A spot of reflection...
Last year was tough for me, in a number of ways.
I’m not going to talk about everything that went on; perhaps I’ll cover it in a future post - and some of it I’ve mentioned already.
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 had a total balls-up: I was meant to host a Live Chat... and I totally forgot!
I didn’t show up... to my own online event!
Last week I bought myself a sticker book (yes, an adult sticker book!), and I’ve been “stickering” most nights.
