Ok Im back.

Ive been away for quite a while, but I have been reading posts, just not got involved with the chats really.

Because of my end of year teaching, required so much energy from me. I only felt I could focus on few things properly whole heartedly

Anyway, teaching has finally finished for the year. Im emotionally drained, and now realize that all the energy I exerted on my students needs to be redirected on me.

I am still busy, cause I also run my own business, which will keep my income going for the summer.

Anyway, I intended to take a week off for myself, but Im so overwhelmed and responsible to different areas of my life, Im finding it very difficult to kick start myself.

I have decided to focus now on looking after myself one day at a time. My intuition will tell me what needs doing (I still have my lists - many), but posting here will hopefully keep me going.

Today

I need to achieve 10 things on my to do list
(includes being assertive and telling people what I need)

Hair cut to be done

I need to declutter

Most importantly I need sleep

Eat and drink healthy

Exercise

My want

I want to regain my new energy

Ctc,

Good work on taking care of yourself. As a teacher, I understand swimming through so much everyday that there's no time to focus on much else.

What business do you have? I was just laid off (budget cuts) and I'm looking for new ideas.

Hi Camer and Lanigirl.

With every closure their is the start of a new beginning. Follow your intuition on do what you feel is best for you. Could you teach privately?

I do and this helps with me running my own business. I cant really go into what it is, because I would be afraid of my anonymity being broken

All I can say is Ive alway tried to follow my intuition, even though its been hard sometimes. Do what you are good at and the world will open up to you.

Todays aim

Already done my first class of body bump. Wow that was hard, at 7am in the morning.

I will focus on

Shiatsu

Do 10 things on my list

Get rid of 10 items

Drink loads of water

Buy and eat healthily

Go to bed early

I still feel my energy levels are not 100%. I guess this all takes time.

My own quote for today:

'We get out of life what we put in. Short cuts just don't work. Time and how we spend it is the only thing that counts.'

I feel overwhelmed by life still.

My business paperwork is a complete mess. I do not feel in control of my life at the moment.

Im trying to get through it all.

I guess it has just been 3 days since I dedicated this week to me and my business.

I know they want progress not perfection.

But I thought Id be a little further along than where I am at the moment.

My energy levels and spirit is still depleted.

Tomorrows focus is:

I work in the morning.

In the afternoon I will choose a dress for my wedding

In Evening

I need to do 10 other pieces of paperwork. (I feel as though I am in forest, trying to get through)

I still need to eat healthily and drink the water.

I want my energy to change levels to change.

I didnt go shopping yesterday.

And did loads of work.

Energy levels feel a little better this morning.

Will go shopping for dress today.

Ive got to focus on painting my doors, and getting rid of 10 items of stuff today.

I really believe this is all helps with increasing my energy.

Will try anyway !

Courage,

Congratulations on upcoming wedding. No wonder things seems overwhelming at the moment. Try to enjoy these moments anyways. Good idea making short, doable lists.

It's taken a couple of days but now I'm feeling that this closure opens new possibilities. I was so angry at first but since letting go of it all, I feel peace. I decided to call the Union, not with any expectations but to feel like I have a voice. He actually emailed back and will set up a meeting with him, a state rep, and myself. I don't expect a major change but I do want a voice.

Lanigirl

Thanks for your thouths. Yes, its incredible how being listened to brings about peace. Ive asked to see a councellor for the next six weeks. All I want is to be listened to. Dont need advise. I know my own answers. But to be listened to makes a huge relief.

Today my focus

I still feel overwhelmed with everything in my life. I just want to get certain things sorted.

i.e. my weight, doors at home need painting, wedding dress, business, paperwork. Anyway the list goes on. I want to feel like my life is more manageable than it is today, so I can focus on the future. No wonder my energy level arnt right.

Ok today, Im going to ask two people for help.

One with painting and the other with spring cleaning.

And if they dont accept, I will not feel rejected.
