I’ve been having a great week. I can see clients face to face again, business is going well and the sun is shining.
I should* be inspired to write a really great blog post for you, but I’m not.
I have some really interesting ideas that I really want to write about, things like why other peoples alcoholism isn’t about us and isn’t for us to fix, do we need to connected spiritually in order to heal, pros and cons of 12 step programs.
Talking about spirituality, dare I write about God? Anyone who knows me will know I have been a pretty firm atheist for a long time, so am I qualified to write about spirituality?
There are things like how family dysfunction doesn’t get talked about and how that messes us up and the mismatch between perception and reality of family dynamics.
But it all seems too big. I don’t feel up to tackling them today.
So, I just decided that it’s ok to put them to the side for today. Not every day has to be magnificent. Not every day needs something spectacular to happen. Boring days are wildly under rated in my opinion.
Boring may be the wrong word; it takes a lot for me to feel bored. I can entertain myself for hours pottering around in the garden, doing a few bits and bobs in the house, playing with the dog, reading, writing, watching TV. Turns out I can fill weeks and weeks with that quite happily.
But asked what I had done with such a day – I would say nothing, and I would feel bad about that. There’s nothing quite as shameful as a wasted day.
But who gets to decide what is a wasted day?
Pottering is restorative. And anything that restores you cannot be wasteful.
It’s time to embrace the simple, mundane pleasures. Go back to basics and really savor it. Much like when you’ve been on holiday eating wonderful food in restaurants – returning home to beans on toast seems like heaven.
So this blog has been a beans on toast kind of blog and I make no apologies for it today.
Anxiety affects everyone in different ways. Whether its general anxiety, phobias, addictions, habits, weight issues or anything else you do it your own way. So, it stands to reason that the solution should be as individual as you are. I use a range of techniques, such as Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy, Life Coaching, EFT, Reiki and many other tools I’ve picked up along the way to work with YOU to find the best fit. We can work online from the comfort of your own home, or you can arrange to come to my private therapy room near Carlisle, Cumbria.
