Lyrics: “It’s a Hard Life Wherever You Go” – Nanci Griffith, 1989
Every other day I come up with all the various topics I think I should write about here. What kind of lyric quote to use and which prompts to structure the post. And then life gets in the way. My life which feels a bit overwhelming. Emotions and thoughts and oh… work and regular life like chores at home (which I still ignore more often than not and then need to find a way to live with that). StruggleCare helped to get some new perspective on that and I’ll try to incorporate some of their ideas when I get back from vacation.
Vacation! Another thing that feels a bit overwhelming and I dislike that, because it shouldn’t feel that way. I’ll leave for London on Friday and I don’t have a clear plan on how to spend my days there. I have a few things planned as in “bought tickets / meet friends” but a lot of the week is still a blank canvas. With a few tentative coloured dots somewhere. I honestly don’t know how that will work out. I just hope I don’t end up holed up in my hotel room because of that. Wish me luck.
Anyway, just wanted to check in here. I’ve got big plans (hahahahaha!) to get into more of a routine with things in the new / next month. Friday in London. Blogging. Meditating. All those kind of things. Not sure if it’s a good thing to schedule a start for later instead of just starting today, but…. I do start with here today, don’t I? I also meditated for a few minutes this morning. Not with a longer (8-10 minutes) guided meditation, because right now that length of time in the morning feels a bit… overwhelming. Surprise.
