Ok, I’m going to be totally honest and say that this email started off with ‘Happy Monday’ and was supposed to be sent last week on June 15th…!
This will give you some idea of what frame of mind I’ve been in recently.
Last week I received an email from someone telling me how she’d been struggling recently and that despite knowing that I had difficulties she admired how I didn’t let things phase me.
You know what? Reading those words made me sad.
I don’t want anyone to think, least of all you, that I am super woman.
I am not.
I get upset. I let things get to me. In fact last week I hardly worked at all because my head was all over the place.
Unfortunately – or not! – I am a very emotional person: I can be up super high one day and then the next find it very difficult to even find the will to get out of bed (or out of a chair in the sunshine!)
Sometimes everything I have decided to do overwhelms me completely and I have no idea where to even start. If you’re an emotional person you’ll understand what I’m saying I’m sure!
I have learned over the last 18 months to take more control over my emotional state but I’m still getting used to it and sometimes I fail miserably.
But that’s ok.
I know that when I feel like giving up and being alone, that is exactly when I NEED to MAKE MYSELF get up, find a reason, mingle with people, have fun and find my flow again.
This morning I decided to go back to the brown paper method of avoiding the feeling of overwhelm.
This was part of the original email which I meant to send last week:
Here I am with crazy hair to thank you for…
I’ve just started teaching Zumba again so I’m getting used to dealing with the sweaty mop of hair and washing it all the time.
What is the best way you’ve found to look after your hair? I’m kind of fed up with the frizzy, itchy effect…! Got a solution? Please let me know here.
Wishing you a wonderful week full of the joys of life
