A discussion with my doctor that knocked the wind out of my sails a little. 

Work developments that have resulted in my creative plans feeling further out of reach, just when I thought I might be close to taking some big, exciting steps forward. 

This week, my body succumbed and I've been quarantined with a particularly nasty cold. 

A tiny boat anchored, surrounded by the vast ocean. Everything in waiting, control feels just beyond my reach. I want to fight back but I haven't found the energy, the fire. Yet.

Blogging has been on the back burner. I have TEN draft posts waiting to be completed. They're piling up. I'm desperate to write and connect with you and share my stories, catch up on how you've been but there has been much in the way. 

Not least of which my own self.

I dragged myself to the gym this morning, boxed my heart out. Trying to wake the part of me that has the energy to fight back. I know it's there. 

Time to focus on getting enough sleep, eating well and exercise. I can see the corner, I'm coming for it.

What do you do to take back the reins when you're feeling a bit battle weary?

  1. Rest and be well friend...I do exactly what you are doing. Eat well and try to sleep as much as possible. It will all come in good time! Take care sweet lady...Nicole

  2. take your time Bel....will be here waiting. take one day at a time....sometimes we just have to concentrate on putting one foot in front of the other. x

  3. Good luck, I know in my own set of circumstances a little of how you could be feeling. I was all set for a big push at the start of the year and the year's flown with very few of my plans taking shape. It'll happen when the time is right though! x

  4. Hope your weekend is full of renewed energies and good health...take care. x

  5. Sounds like your doing all the right stuff... I just try to stay outside as much as possible... and go for walks in the woods. Take care and turn that corner!

  6. Goodness me. Ladies, you have no idea how much your kind words mean to me. You guys are so thoughtful to leave a comment, it really lifted my spirits to read them. Thank you XXXX
