Oooh I really have. ♥️
We had a lovely wee night last night. We are very quick to watch the next movie, the next TV series and binge watch of an evening and have done since lockdown began and probably long before that too.
We decided to have a cosy night in the sunroom last night. The wood burning stove has been cleaned out and it’s a lovely space to sit with the log burner on.
I didn’t finish the blog until after 8 but we sat till 11.30 listening to “heart songs”… songs that mean something on our life. We were singing away half the night. (The crazy, anxiety-ridden girl from a few days ago was just a memory….Albeit still a painful one).
I’m still emotional. There were tears through the songs but good tears, happy tears and memories and positive thoughts for the future.
I said the other day that I really need to make some peace with my anxiety. It’s easy to say when you’re not in the thick of it but I need to accept that it is a part of me and it’s what makes me me. I am passionate about anything that I do (as if you haven’t noticed…) I get obsessed by things being right…. That’s just it… it’s my version of what I think is right…. That’s not always possible and that’s not the end of the world. That is ok.
This next one is so true but at the same time if I appreciate the present moment then I have to believe that there’s no time like the present.
Humans naturally wait for the next “hit” of happiness. The next purchase, the next holiday, the next house etc… if we keep searching for the next thing then we will never be truly happy with what we already have.
I’m reading a new book…. just in case you wondered where all this wisdom was coming from?!? 🤣🤣
I was listening to Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place podcast and she interviewed Gelong Thubten. I got to work on Thursday and ordered his book straight away as he talks about how happiness is here and now in the present. Very like the Eckhart Tolle teachings I’ve been listening to.
Focus on the now. The present moment.
Check my new jammies for lounging around the house.
So back to the book…..
This is so true and I’ve never thought of that before now.
So my day so far…. Dog walk with Calaidh and Freya. Then dog walk with Bhru. It’s very wet!!!
I actually got stuck in a ditch walking Bhru… I threw the frisbee into a deep ditch and she looked at me with that look like she had no idea what I meant…. She was not going for it. I had to…….
Could I get back out?! Honestly where are all your dog walking buddies when you need them. I couldn’t find anything to pull up on to give me the humph out…. Ended up having to get both feet down in the ditch and crawl up and out on my hands and knees 🤦🏻♀️. Classy.
Claire popped in for a cuppa after I had my shower and then I took a wee drive down to Irvine for a wander round the shops… hence the newly purchased jammies.
I was only there for an hour or so. It was pretty busy and queued to get in and out the car park.
It’s still raining.
I’m gonna settle down for a nap now I think. Poor Craig’s working all day today so I reckon I have an hour and a half. Just enough time.
He called……. At 16.54….. woke me up… I booked back off and he is now home. Full of admiration for my new purple jammies…… 🤣🤣🤣 I’d only I could replicate his face when he saw me. I’m still giggling…. 🤷🏻♀️😂🤣
He says I look like blind Al from Deadpool….. nowI’m not gonna lie…. Even the back of the seat is the same as the new blanket I have on Grans chair….
I’m still sleepy. I’d normally be grumpy but I’m laughing. He says I need some big gold chains. 🤣🤣🤣
I’ve had another lovely wee day. I’m content. Happy on the moment. Still giggling at my jammies….
Stay safe everyone 💜💜💜
