Depleted and struggling to self regulate. Very tired. Wasted three hours this afternoon for an appointment that was cancelled as we arrived at the waiting room. The major road was closed so we had to go a different way. It's used up loads of energy for nothing. I feel disrespected and under valued. Trying to put a positive spin on this and failing. Need to find surrender to what is.

Holding steady. First part of the day done and all ok. Meditation helped. Quick 20 minute walk in the park also. Now need to focus on how best to achieve this afternoons errand.

Feeling low. Sitting with disappointment and frustrated with myself because I am worried I am making a fool of myself. Moment by moment today. Still stiff and sore from yesterday with some pain.

Sorry to read this. You're doing such a great job!

Home safe. Stiff and sore. Grateful for warm porridge and a warm shower. I'm gonna buy running lights for next time - I think I only fell because I couldn't see well enough in the dark. Ouchy life lessons today.

sounds like a good idea. Headlamps are light and inexpensive. Glad you're ok

I've fallen on my run. It was dark and scary. Ive mashed my hands and knees but not badly because of clothing. Suns coming up now. Heading home. Lessons to learn are many.

Hope you're okay

Up mega early. Food prepping like a boss - breakfasts and main meals prepped for the week. Hemp overnight porridge for breakfast. Italian practice done and notes made about my business. All as the sun has risen in the sky. It's like someone put the lights on - Wow 😮

Wow great 😊sounds awesome.

Going strong - studied, spoke to a friend. Allowed time to think about future work project. Played guitar. This hour is about powering through all the little jobs I don't wanna do and just getting them done. Here I go Pandas!

Awake with more incentive to learn. Intend to focus and make progress. Using time wisely. Chia and hemp porridge and kiwi fruit for breakfast.

Whoa! What an afternoon! 🤯 Met with life coach and started to talk about the BIG goals - the stuff that matters that I currently don't get to do. Dreaming bigger. Way out of my comfort zone. Also challenging guitar lesson too. Feels like a day of pushing myself.

Well done ☺️

Finding it hard to check in because I feel very up and down. Some pain. Did an out and back run this morning to take my son to school. Sky looks vast and leaves have an autumnal sparkle. Failing to connect with eldest kiddo. Its sad it's so hard. House jobs, learning Italian and guitar - now settling to study. Grateful but tired.

Really positive meeting with my sons school. Hoping to get things back on track. Lovely long walk home on the tow path- enjoying sights and sounds of the water and boats. Grateful. Relieved but tired.

Continuing to get unstuck. Better morning for being more focussed and purposeful. Learning helps but so does letting go of outcomes. I feel a like I'm getting drive and determination back. I hope so.

Seasons change. The moon & tides have their cycles. We, too, have ours. Such is nature. Energy waxes and wanes, our rhythms ebb and flow. It's hard to remain equanimous when energy and mood drop. Then spring comes...

Brain fogging over. Much study done. Movement and Guitar playing breaks for clarity and also learning. Fingers getting stronger. Set up call with a coach for later this week. Moved on a huge box of clothes. Need to get back to decluttering. Getting unstuck - hard work but worth it.

I want to rewrite the script. I want my life to be different. I need to really consider what I can change and what I can't and I need to take action. Writing that is easier than doing it 😌 Kiddo off school again but good to have tea with an old friend. Studying now. I'm gonna do this. I have to.

Writing it may be the easier part but it's the start of it. I believe in you as I'm sure everyone here does also. You are strong, wise and determined - you can change whatever you need to and we are all here supporting you!

Still trying to get some momentum with bigger projects and failing. Feels frustrating. Want to serve beyond immediate commitments. Back to collect little kiddo early from school early - snuggles and stories - gratitude. Wondering where to turn to for guidance about what's next. Need help to gather a plan that's workable.

You know what works best during hectic days? A nice, warm bowl of chicken noodle soup. With thick broth. :P

By opening the heart to receive guidance, trustng you'll come across the right word, book, mentor... whatever form instruction chooses to take. Sometimes we'll find inspiration in nature, in a story, a song to help us along on our journey.

Panda feeling low 🐼 Trying to do Sunday night tasks feels impossible against the background of chaos. I actually feel sick. Being an adult is really challenging and I haven't scheduled in enough fun today despite the tea and run/walk combo this morning.

18k gratitude run and walk. Tea on boat with friend. Plant gift. It's beautiful - going to look up about how to care for it. Glad of boaters and sunrise. Omg I ran as the sun came up. Misty and ethereal and beautiful. Cormorants and swans. Meditative too. I feel the rhythm of my feet and the sound of my shoes on the earth. Grateful to look over and wave at a friend in the distance.

Recognising I've worked hard to make today work. Grateful for time with a friend and buying plants. I figure plants are pretty portable but the Christmas displays nearly finished me. Who knows what and where by then. Back to today. Glad of meditation and body scan. Acute belly pain - trying to accept and lean into it and accept my choices.

You're so smart, Mandy, and so aware. You're amazing.

Taking responsibility for my choices and actions and determined to make amends to myself and others. I'm feeling confusion and grief and finding both really challenging to sit with. Eating better today and grateful to walk with my kiddo this morning.

Sounds like a rough patch... the weight heavy. You seem to know you limits & when to back off. But guessing backing off is not always an option. Trusting you will find the path through, even if it means diving headlong into the fire like a Phoenix.

Hell yes. Thanks Love!
