I woke up to early mist and the thought that, once it’s cleared, it should be a sunny day. However, when the mist cleared it has turned out to be a grey day with possible sunshine at noon.
I’ve decided to have a different week, not that there has been anything wrong with the challenges I have given myself for the previous weeks of lockdown. All those challenges have worked, though some have taken longer than I thought they would. That is not to say that moments of disappointment and discouragement haven’t welled up at times.
I have decided this week to stretch myself. During the next two weeks there are three important birthday celebrations, which I know I would have been part of. They are for a 5-year-old grandchild, a 10-year-old grandchild and one of those big ‘0’ birthdays. It does seem that all the much looked forward to preparations have to be put on hold. The question I am seeking answers for is, ‘What can I do to bring a little bit of happiness to lighten some of the sadness?’. That challenge will take thought and time and as well as putting my inspiration into practice.
Alongside this, however, is the monotony of each day. To alleviate the monotony here is my proposal for myself – three words which are as follows:
the first word is pace
the second is prioritise
and the third is do it properly.
I know I am good at pacing myself. The prioritising not so, I can spread myself too broadly at times. At the moment it is difficult to find things to do. Therein lies the problem. Once I find satisfying tasks there won't be any problem to do them properly.
