Oh, Sunday evening how you mock me I am not ready for it to be Monday morning tomorrow, I really do think we need to find a way of adding an extra day to the weekend. I know I can’t escape reality forever but I like my little pj bubble at home as it is so safe and so warm. I know I can’t stay in this bubble forever it is not healthy to, but come on we all need a break from the world every now and then.
The good news is I am only working 3 days next week as I have booked 2 days off so it is another glass half empty and half full situation.
Sunday evenings are hard for a lot of people and there is one thing I do on a Sunday evening just to kick-start my motivation and that is a tiny victories list for the weekend.So as I prepare to peel myself out my PJs tomorrow morning and put on my uniform I have a little something to look at that, that will help put a bit of pep in my step as I get on that early train.
A tiny tip of the day – write it down!
My bag can look like a mini stationery shop as it is full of pens and notebooks. I can on average take at least 2 notebooks with me everywhere and a bunch of multicoloured pens. I have also lost count of how many times people have asked me why? Why not! is always my answer, is there a rule on how many pens and notebooks a person is allowed on them, I think not!
To me, it is so important to write things down as I find it easier to process things when they are written. So whether it is something good or bad that I am feeling if it is something that I am struggling with to understand or something I am proud of. When I am seeing it in front of me it is a small step in owning my feelings.
It could be a small smiley face in the corner of a page or a simple sentence of “I feel sad”. To an outsider it may something like nothing a doodle but to me, it is a page for of dreams and fears learning to live as one, it is my mind.
I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not remember that it is ok not to be ok.
