After a hectic and busy few months both personally and work wise I decided this week to take some time off. I’ve had such a relaxed week and it’s been exactly what I needed. Relaxation isn’t something that comes naturally for me, I’m a do-er and I thrive on being busy.
This week has almost felt like an indulgence, I’ve been reading, catching up on Netflix shows and generally having a relaxed attitude. I usually ignore those niggling feelings of overwhelm and just try to push on so I’m very proud of myself for listening for once.
One of the biggest problem when you are self-employed is that you never really switch off. The problem is ten fold if you have a creative and busy mind. I had to force myself to switch off and put the blog to one side for a few days, it wasn’t an easy thing to do as I love what I do. It was definitely necessary though, there’s no way I could have relaxed if I hadn’t.
I feel refreshed and ready for the madness of the festive season to begin now. There are so many events, activities and dates to remember at school over the next two weeks. It’s also Daisy’s 6th birthday on Sunday which involves a party with her friends from school. Although it will be a crazy busy weekend I’m so looking forward to celebrating with her.
I’m ready to get back into the swing of things although maybe with a more balanced attitude.
