The Change

The last seven days have been a bit of a watershed, when all is said and done. A lot of time and effort has been put into planning what happens this year that’s not already scheduled, submitted or required. It would be fair to say that enjoyment has been missing in various portions of my life of late, mostly because there was an overriding sense that I was getting nowhere. That is patently not the case, of course, but sometimes there needs to be more reminders than you alone are capable of providing.

Life is so brief and fleeting that it is really important to live every moment as well as it is possible to do inside your means. Next week, I have two Open Mic spots and countless opportunities to make something from nothing, if there is the desire to do so. I want to achieve all I can, and want to have fun whilst doing so. It is possible to do both. What it requires from you as an adult is the ability to step outside the normality of existence to make the changes needed. I’m ready and willing to do this.

Next week will be when we start a new chapter in my life.

Blimey, it was windy today, and because the idea of planes being blown off course and being unable to land is not something I find attractive, today has been about trying to work through chaos and get stuff done. We succeeded. It has been a suitably productive Friday 😀

I have struggled a lot this week with confidence, both in my ability and myself personally. It takes time to readjust when I am told I’ve not done well enough. Everything, in the end, is a test of resolve and belief. I’ve got this. I know I have.

Yesterday was trying. Not everything got done in the way I wanted. I was also quite seriously tested. It wasn’t a total failure, either. This is what progress should look like.

My car is out of action for at least two weeks, thanks to the joy of ordering parts from Europe with no real idea of how long that takes any more 😦 This means a fairly significant rethink of everything in my day, and an undoubted increase in the number of steps I will be taking as a result, so on that front it won’t be a massive loss in terms of fitness. In fact, if I can spin the situation sufficiently, it could be a win all over…
