I was going to send this card to a friend. But tonight it really resonated with me. Be brave. I've had so little sleep lately. I feel like a zombie. I pretty much look the part too. I banged my head really hard on the corner of a door frame yesterday (still not sure how!)... It's all feeling a little overwhelming. Yet at the same time, I almost don't believe that all these big changes are happening to our lives. I've been saying for a while that I don't feel stressed. That I've felt calm about the move. But today I've realised just how stressed I have actually been. It's as though my body has been ringing one alarm bell after the other to make me realise this and I've been ignoring them all. Well tonight, I feel as though I've been hit by a bus. I can barely keep my eyes open but will struggle to sleep. My whole body aches. My back is sore when I lie down. Argh. However tonight I will take a deep breath. Honour exactly how am I'm feeling. And be brave. I won't bore you with the details of things that have popped up in the last few days. Suffice to say that everyone knows moving house is ever so slightly stressful. BUT we are so excited about what these changes will bring! We have loads of back up plans available to us. Things might not ultimately always go to plan, but no matter what the outcome will be amazing. The last few weeks we have already seen so many changes in our family, I'm keen to see what else awaits us ☄ When was the last time you felt brave? Any tips on being brave when you feel a little overwhelmed by stuff? #bebrave #liveabeautifullife #liveyourlife #behappy
Bristol no longer looks like this... it was fun while it lasted!
Once upon a time there was a little girl... . . Today I share with you on the blog why I left my legal career with no back up plan almost four years ago. If you're in a job you don't like, or if you feel like making a big change, read on to find out why I did in the end. Maybe it'll inspire you to make the change you crave! If you've already made a big career change, I'd love to hear from you! Either way, get in touch :) Happy reading!
Good morning!! It's Friday... today I'm choosing to let go of things I can't control, and to make the most of a day with just my husband 💕 Lemon + hot water to start. And I took time to look at how beautiful the garden looks in the frost and sunshine!🌞 meanwhile the kids are watching a documentary on animals over breakfast 😍 How do you start your day?
It feels like February would have been spent just waiting... Having not taken on any work projects due to not knowing when we'll be leaving means that Barry and I have mainly been at home waiting for a date... I'm carrying on with the packing and the cleaning but there isn't much left to do... just more waiting. It also feels as though we've said goodbye at least 10394 times to our friends, each time saying this could be the last time! The sale itself is ready to go through, we're just waiting for one last tiny item to be approved by a 3rd party... I've also completely lost my voice this week... maybe someone somewhere is making sure I stop being able to talk & moan about it all 😁 Eurg... Any advice on how to encourage the universe to make the move happen asap? 😁 Alternatively, any good coping mechanisms? #movingtofrancewithkids #movingtofrance #waitingtocomplete #wanttogonowplease
Starting to look weird and empty... Just waiting for a completion date, fingers crossed for it to be asap, we want to gooooooo 🤞🤞🤞 I will miss that mural though... luckily @whitespacemuraldesign Has already said shed travel to France to see us 😁😁 #movingtofrancewithkids #movingtofrance #newstart #readytogo
