Do You Ever Feel Like You're Swimming Against The Tide?

Lately I have felt like this more and more often, since I got back from the states mid-January I have been struggling to get on top of everything I need to. There was Christmas, then I went to Florida, some bad news in our family meant we had to come home via LA for a funeral which was nice and terrible all at the same time, then I came straight back to work, my jetlag was a killer and my flat has suffered because of it. I have bags of christmas presents, underneath holiday shopping, with piles of washing to put away, things to sell at a car boot, things to sort out, and no space for all of it. I just get so overwhelmed with it all!

Tonight I have made myself a little sanctuary, I changed my bed covers to my new ones I got off my parents for Chritsmas, watched a couple of FleurDeForce's youtube videos and am now snuggled up in said bed, reading The Scorch Trials. Just making my bed uplifted my mood, it looks so pretty and inviting!



I have a lot to get through this week, but my five minutes of reflection just now has chilled me out a bit. I am swamped but I know if I so a little bit each day, I can accomplish a lot! This will be my mantra for the next couple of weeks so I can get everything done! Expect a 'happy place' update when I finish.

I just felt like I needed to ramble a bit tonight and his is the best place to do it!

  2. aw sweetie, i'm the same, things are a little hectic and it's tough at times. ended a bit of a detrimental relationship and it was somehow made into a huge drama. *things were thrown?!* along with family loss and i'm a bit panicked about other stuff in life too! (career..)

  4. That was a great story. Something that so many of us can relate to. I feel overwhelmed at the prospects of cleaning out my garage, as well as my office. It seems that life gets in the way of our plans.
