This is the first day in a long time that I’ve not had to look back on what day number this was… I’m quite proud of myself. I remembered yesterday’s 3 little ducks 🦆 🦆 🦆.
I had a great sleep last night but have been waking at 6.30am for a good few days now and I did again. This gives me a chance to check up on the news, social media etc. I can’t read my book in the dark and I don’t want to get up. However…. I know this hasn’t helped me today.
With everything going on just now I find the news a bit overwhelming. Craig is really into all things political right now and I have to say that I firmly share his views and just can’t understand how things in the US 🇺🇸 are going how they’re going right now. Well I fully understand why they are how they are but that’s my political opinion and not for this blog to share. It’s terrifying that people who have voted one way all their lives will still do so because they hear all the scare-mongering on their side about the other.
I know that I cannot change any of that but I have to change how I choose to react to it. It’s terrifying to think what the world is coming to…
So all of that aside I went for a lovely dog walk and I think that really helped. I had some lovely chats with some other villagers while I was out and the sun was starting to push through the clouds.
In more ways than one…. the wind and rain have died down but so has the crazy inside my head…. I had a day of clearing out our bedroom in between making Pawsitive Solutions calls. I feel so much calmer than I even did this morning. I’ve had a day where I chose what I wanted to do and when I did it rather than being dictated by other events and I’ve really enjoyed it.
While it started off shaky I have turned today around and I feel really blessed to have this life right now. I can’t explain the relief when the storm passes.
Another learning curve climbed and riding the wave until the next one.
Stay safe everyone 💜💜💜
