Remembering you, in all the crazy

One of my favourite spaces is my meditation corner in my home. And today, for the first time in what feels like a long time, I used it. I reeeeeeeally needed to.

Lately it feels like I’ve been constantly adapting, moving and jumping through hoops. Desperately trying to claw back with both hands some semblance of a ‘normal’ life for me and my family. 

The kids are back at school. Shops are open. We can book holidays. We can book things with family. This person needs me. That person too. Garden play dates, yes! School clubs, absolutely. Let’s sign up to it all; yes yes yes!! 

It’s all felt pretty fast paced and in all honesty, I’m knackered! And emotional. And I know I’m not the only one. After chatting with friends and family, it turns out the feelings mutual. Lots of us have felt a little overwhelmed. 

So… the way I see it I have two options. 

1. Curl up into a ball. Shut the world out. Stuff my face with chocolate. Tempting…🤔🤪

2. OR… make the conscious decision to include ‘me’ in my increasingly busy schedule. In amongst all this crazy, I will commit to remembering myself too. 

Meditation might not be for you. But something will be.  A peaceful cup of tea, a walk, a bath, an exercise class, a tv show you enjoy, a book you get lost in. Whatever makes you smile. 

Remember, in the rush to get back to normal and be everything for everyone; YOU are important too ❤️
