One Step Forward
Three weeks into the ‘Stay at Home’ request, I made up a list of things that needed attention around my home. Installing a new sprinkler timer, digging out ivy from a fence, and cleaning the attic for a new guest room (or maybe mine, if I can talk the dogs into moving upstairs!).
While tackling these, and a few more tasks around the house, I realized my mind was racing.
What to do this afternoon, what to do tomorrow, and what to do before I need to reassemble my life to regulated schedules and time commitments again?
So, yes, I was getting things done, but kind of driving myself crazy with all the ‘needs’ I saw before me. All of a sudden, the little things I had been putting off stood at attention, right in front of my nose!
Do you know what I did to calm that storm? I made a pot of tea, sat out on the patio, and admired my new found friend, a tiny male hummingbird who arrived earlier than I had anticipated.
So my advice to staying one step ahead of the game? Take some time for yourself to ‘just be’. You have time, and instead of running the race of completion, sit on the sidelines and breath in the present.
It suits the soul …
Two Steps Back
In my quest for answers, as well reach out to people in abuse, I’ve almost completed a book on narcissistic relationships. I must say, there are days when I can’t even think about editing and other days when I dive in and lose hours in the writing. But more than anything, it reminds me of a love which I’ve never experienced before, one side the deepest love I have ever felt, and on the other side, cruelty beyond comprehension.
If any of you would like to receive a free copy of this book and leave a review on Amazon, please let me know, as I’m hoping to get the ranking high so the word will get out.
The book is designed as a self-help guide, aimed at supporting a victim of narcissistic abuse, while also building self-esteem and self-love back into the soul. This book has definitely been hard to write, probably more than two steps back. But if it helps just a handful of people identify and begin renewing their self-love with themselves, then my tasks have been justified. Please send an email in ‘Contact Us’ and I’ll send you a link to a Free Copy.
Thank you so much for your help and support!!
