Day 913 a busy day at the shop and then shopping!

I’m not making the same mistake as yesterday where all my good blogging ideas flew out my ears before I came to write it. 😆

I have a FB page for The Rambling Sloth 🦥 where I have THE most positive newsfeed. On the days where I do pick up the phone before I do anything else, it’s a great way to set your stall out for the day.

This next one is something f that I’ve been very aware of over the last few years on my healing journey. This….

I used to be soooo judegy it almost consumed me. I used to criticise anyone who wasn’t like me, who did things differently, who dressed differently, spoke differently and of course those who did wrong in my eyes.

I love that I am able to see past this now. If someone hurts me, cuts me up on the road or doesn’t do as I might expect in a situation, I am very quick to think why this might have happened. Why did that person seem angry…. What factors in their life have led them to this moment? Is it me? Of course it’s not. It’s the million things going on in their head today. The voices they hear inside of them making them angry.

Live and let live. I wish we could all be a bit more like this. The world might be a bit less judgey.

I should say here that I am not a saint. That someone’s direct anger to me will send me off in a rocket at times but that’s no longer my normal reaction and I’m proud of my ability to see past it.

We did not go to the Farm this morning. I’m tired.

I was working at the little gift shop today and it flew in! We had another really good day… there’s new scarf stock in this week that I’m just seeing and I love them all. I managed to price them up and love looking at them but not buy one 😬😂 it was not that easy 😂

It’s been such a strange weather day today. We had hailstones when we dropped Craig’s car off at the garage this morning and then when I went to work the sun was warm against the blue sky.

After work I headed up to Braehead Shopping Centre and it’s half 8 now and I just sat down! I am shattered!!

I’m trying to buy birthday presents and post being off sick for so long and covid lockdowns, I have no clue what to get anyone! I dither around the shops. I talk to myself (😳) I suffer a bit of anxiety. The shops are busy, there are lots of people all buying lots of stuff. I have waves of dizziness. That could be a lack of food and water today… 😬

I’m being so careful with money these days that I found it difficult seeing so many people shopping. There were loads of people with loads of bags. I’ve never been shopping on a Friday night before so maybe it’s always this busy but I felt like an outsider in a different world. I used to LIVE in shopping centres…. Funny how things change when you have a different focus in life.

The sky is stunning when I leave. The moon is huge but disappears behind the cloud when I try to take a photo.

I love this next one. It reminds how much there is to be grateful for in the world. I see beauty everywhere I look. Wow.

Anyway, I’m sooooo tired. Looking forward to a good sleep before work in the morning and Dad’ 70th family get together.

Happy weekend to you all!

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
