I suppose it had to end, the feeling good every day. What a lovely holiday it was waking up feeling happy, refreshed, enthusiastic and well, just well. Today I'm off colour in every respect, but you know what, even though I feel out of it, it's o.k. This too shall pass and who knows by this evening I may well be feeling better.
I am continually surprised by how much I am affected by stress, little stresses, big stresses, they are a direct link to my overall sense of well being. The stress of a situation or situations is generally not going to disappear immediately. So the question might be how to manage these so that they have minimal effect on how we feel? Still learning how to do that but a very good start might be by living in the moment. When I live in the moment, I'm hopefully thinking about what I'm doing right now, not about how I'm going to manage the next 6 hours or even the next 5 minutes. I find this very hard to do because I'm generally someone who likes to be organised and plan ahead. Sometimes that just does my head in, especially on off days.
We have a visitor coming, someone I'm looking very much forward to spending time with and I'm so annoyed that I'm feeling off. The annoyance isn't helping me one bit, so I need to remember that people who come to visit, come to see us, not the house, the dog who smells and needs a bath, the floor that needs washing, the windows that desperately need cleaning from the dog slobber. There will be a bed, food, shelter, love, laughter and friendship. They are the important things, yes?
I'm about to live in the moment of eating some honey on toast (yummy homemade bread) and a lovely cup of tea. Let the rest of the day take care of itself.
