The pebble in my shoe
This morning I woke up, showered and dressed. As I put on my shoes, I didn’t notice the pebble there.
A little stone, so tiny but quickly it irritated me. “How did that get there” I thought but I was hungry and went downstairs for breakfast. I was aware all the time of this bothersome thing in my shoe but still I continued and had my breakfast. Only when I changed for work did I actually address that irritation. Turned out to be a bit of Keppel dog food. Maybe the dog put it there in the hope of a walk.
Have you ever had something that bothered you? and you kept on letting it bother you. You put up with the irritation until you couldn’t stand it anymore. A lot of life is like that. We have been pushed to the extremes in the past couple of years. The irritation of three lockdowns, the irritation of bad news, the irritation of not meeting friends who care for you.
With the easing of restrictions to 20 kms. and construction restarted and many other businesses reopening it’s like the pebble in the show (or in my case dog food) has been removed and we can move easier.
Removing irritations from your mind is important. Keeping that mindset squeaky clean is one of the most important things you can do to help YOU.
What’s the Story
Stay up to date with my take on the world
My fringe was beyond my nose
When I was out walking my hair flapped like one of those dogs with long ears. I lasted five months. Then drastic measures had to be taken.
As we become so familiar with the word “restrictions” where we are all asked to control our actions which limit us is many ways. How could you turn that into a positive?
Staying in your own bubble
As we move forward from this pandemic we are asked to continue to stay in our own bubble as much as possible. We can visit family and friends but being mindful of washing our hands and continuing to wear masks and keep that social distance of two metres.
The masks we wear
We have all gotten used to wearing masks (the physical ones). We have been used to masks on an emotional level too. Each of us wear masks to hide our true feelings. The “I’m fine” mask is well known.
My watch pings. My phone vibrates. My email dings. It’s as if there is a message everywhere every moment saying something like “hurry I’m speaking to you – can you not hear the vibrations – get stressed – I’m important – answer me – be at my beck and call – now – now – now – vibration – vibration – vibration.
A new perspective
Last week I had a second cataract operation. The left eye this time.
I don’t know about you, but every so often my emails get chock-a-block with rubbish.
Alexa goes for Therapy
I’m sick of it. They never stop. It seems like the whole world is shouting at me:
Healing in Covid Times
Listen to my audio and take a moment to consider Healing in Covid Times.
A Glimmer of Hope
A long long time ago, the glimmerman lit the gas lights in the streets when it got dark. He lit his lights so people could see, so they could find their way through the darkness.
Changing times, new learnings
Comedy is so important right now. When you laugh you send happy feelings throughout your body.That has to be good for your immune system. And we need to keep our immune system happy and healthy.
Adapt Change Grow
We have all experienced our safety and connection being threatened, but, we can adapt, change and grow
Having studied, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, CBT, NLP, Coaching and Brain Working Recursive therapy, I am in awe at how you can help a client back from the brink. The work you put in will give you hope. Hope for a future you can work towards. Take the first step today!
