I realise I haven’t written anything in a while and I can only apologise.
Life just sort of took over!
We plan and schedule and then good old life just waltzes in all over everything!
“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
Why do we insist on complicating things? Adding pressure upon ourselves when it really isn’t necessary?
Why can’t we allow ourselves to focus on one part of our lives if we need to?
Before the Easter break started, I made the decision to just enjoy the moments and not worry about work, what to write or social media.
I let the chocolate and time with the kids turn my brain to mush and I switched off on one aspect of my life and switched on the other part – fully.
We do not remember days, we remember moments.
So I ate macarons and a tonne of chocolate (and lots of crisps and junk… diet what diet?!)…
I spent time with my family soaking up history and of course lots of architecture…
I met up with extended family from all over the country at a wedding which happened to be in a stunning setting.
It was truly wonderful to be around my loved ones, in such fantastic surroundings… photos of which I must share because beautiful architecture must be shared and appreciated 🙂
It has been lovely to be able to meet up with family and friends and just switch off. I came away with many happy memories.
I have felt slightly stressed subconsciously though because I haven’t written anything AT ALL!!!
As hard as we may try to focus on one aspect of our lives, it is near impossible to ignore the other parts.
I have so many projects in the pipeline and am not near completion with any of them. I feel the need to write!
And so I have come full circle and am now ready to add pressure to myself till something is achieved… I think I may turn up the pressure after this week is over…
Wish me luck! 😉
Have you ever just switched off a part of your life to focus fully on another? Was it satisfying?
