My wobbly quest for the simple life

I am on a quest for a simple life.  A life that my body can handle.  A life that I feel relaxed and calm in and can experience some silence in.  A life that I can be myself in.  Whoever that is.

But today, I don’t feel like I’m doing very well at it.

Could freelancing be for you?

Are you tired of working in a place where you feel your best is not good enough?

Do you dread going into work every day because the environment leaves you feeling sick? Are you in a job you hate?

Are you feeling totally burnt out like you’ve been left on the career grill plate too long? A friend of mine found herself in one of these unfortunate positions, she chose to resign and is now contemplating life. She’s not alone. In fact, finding yourself in this predicament is unfortunately very common place.

So it was with some fervor that I summarized this particular conversation with my friend. The dilemma we mused was how to bring in enough (money), doing that thing you love without flogging yourself at the same time. Hmm, OK, where to start?

Confession: I’m mad about my phone

Is your smart phone or tablet ruling your life? How joined at the hip are you? Go on be honest.

Or perhaps change has been foisted on you and it’s something you have no choice in.

You need to slow down or do something different and create a new you but you’re not sure what it means or how you can even make it happen.

Adrenergics anonymous

Adrenaline, my adrenergic tendencies and I have become very acquainted.  It’s my side kick in life.

It’s a bit like your favourite tipple at the pub when someone asks ‘what’s your poison?’.  You lap it up at the time but suffer from the effects of it big time when you’ve done it to excess.  And having had to live with the excess side of things since 2014, when my body just went completely haywire, I’ve become quite knowledgeable about its impact.

Stop and discover some new dreams

One of the best things by far that has come out of my enforced simpler existence has been to re-experience stuff.

Stuff I had forgotten about or stuff I’ve discovered that’s completely new.

Finding out I had a chronic illness has meant a complete rewrite of me and the discovery of some new dreams.  Continue reading Stop and discover some new dreams

I can’t spoon for toffee

Spoonies I’m in some strife and I need your help with my pacing strategies.

This is your call to action….. (Everyone else, strange ‘spoonie’ and ‘spoon’ references will become clearer….)

Life these last few weeks has been ridiculous.  This crazy, stupid, mad woman has been cramming just too much in.  My pacing strategies have gone completely out the window.  And for what? To try and earn some god damn money.  Damn it. Continue reading I can’t spoon for toffee
