So I let life get away with me again and have been a little MIA from the blog these past few weeks. Back into routine again and I’ll be posting every Saturday from now on.
So what’s been happening? Well, my normal day to day job has taken it’s toll, it is nearing the end of the year so I have A LOT of work to ensure is up to date (eeek).
Not only that, I moved house a week ago! Something we weren’t sure was going to happen in time, before we had to move out of our old place. I had immense stress around this time, so many things were up in the air, and the frustration was just raining down on me. Sometimes things don’t quite go as smoothly as planned, but thankfully we were told with 24hrs notice we could finally go ahead and begin the move.
It’s interesting how something so minor, can have such a huge impact on stress and mental wellbeing. Prior to the move we were in a rental place, until the new house had been built. The rental was dark, damp, dingy and it always seemed like it was wet and cold outside. The lighting was awful, I used to have to prop my mirror up in front of the window, to try and see clearly each morning when putting on my makeup. During this time, I started to feel down and demotivated, itching to get away.
Now that we have moved and are all settled in, this HUGE weight has been lifted. I feel so positive, motivated, excited and no longer stuck! FINALLY!!! Not to mention this house is new, light, open and airy. The area is absolutely beautiful and I feel so at peace being here. This has been an utter relief. Isn’t it funny how something as simple as your home, can make you feel so different.
Half the reason I was feeling “down” was because a lot of things had been set, although they weren’t yet in motion, so playing the waiting game had become quite tedious. Because things have finally started to progress and change, that feeling of freedom and possibility has emerged. Summer coming probably had a little something to do with it too, I will admit the slightly warmer weather is a happy reminder.
I can’t quite yet divulge specific things, but a lot of changes are coming my way (in my personal life) and it is so exciting! I can’t wait for the time to come, where I can share a little more about what will be happening.
Things that kept me going throughout this time were chatting to my amazing Life Coach, Kate Caddle – www.katecaddle.com who helped me set numerous goals to achieve, and reading the book “Mastering Your Mean Girl” by Melissa Ambrosini (I definitely recommend too).
Anyway, I’m off to carry on being proactive and get some daily tasks done. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week. Feel free to comment with things that help you to de-stress and feel motivated again.
