Day 21 of the UK lockdown and reflections at the end of the Easter long weekend.
The daisies are blooming and my pup needs a hair cut :). Nature shows us so clearly how life will continue regardless of what we are doing. So we need to find our flow and and move with the seasonal rhythm.
I have realised that I need to get some real structure and routine into my day and week. I have been adjusting and settling, but now is time to get moving and "get back in the saddle".
I have realised that I have slipped on a "few staples", my daily yoga has become a bit random and my monthly, weekly and daily planning has completely vanished from my world - oops!
More than that, my morning routine has morphed into something that resembles my Saturday 'let's chill' day. Definitely not the way to live life for any extended period of time. Holidays are great but not forever...
Have you noticed how retired people are always so busy. They have time to do all those fun things that we never dream of doing. They really live and make the most of each day. Exploring, connecting, learning, volunteering, giving back, supporting and just enjoying life.
I feel like we have the time, right now, to live more like that. We have a unique opportunity to make the most of this time.
There is a real opportunity to create something magical, with memories to last a lifetime. Perhaps a legacy, as we find out what is really important and begin to explore ways to do things differently.
Perhaps we need a procrastination list, as opposed to a to-do list. Barbara introduced this in her blog - such a great way to looking at those tasks we have put off for sooooo long and yet we still aspire to do, one day!
I have really enjoyed spending time listening to podcasts. Find people who you resonate with and who inspire you then listen to things that help you move forward.
Day and night. Spring, summer, autumn, winter. Nature doesn't miss a day regardless of what else might be happening.....
