Here’s what I am doing…

I’m playing KETCHUP…. πŸ˜›
(interesting to note that Ketchup here in South Africa is called Tomato Sauce, and I had to learn when I was younger that ketchup was referring to that condiment πŸ˜› Speaking American… you know πŸ˜‰ )

I am trying so hard to just catch up… on everything. Isn’t amazing how, if you let one small thing slide per day, it can get quite overwhelming?
And it’s not like I ‘put off for tomorrow what I could do today’…. I just couldn’t get to some things because my health needed me to rest….
And I am so far behind that I do not have my ducks in a row… in fact, I don’t even think I have ducks anymore πŸ˜›
(So please forgive me for falling behind on your blog posts… I promise I will get there πŸ˜‰ )

BUT…. I am still my cheerful self, and refuse to be stressed about what I simply cannot do right now, because I do not have full control, and am unable to control everything. One thing at a time (I did a blog post on this one before πŸ˜‰ ) – one hour at a time, one day at a time πŸ˜‰
Pretty much like being stoic – I had forgotten what that word meant… and have never really thought too much about where I am at regarding it….
There is a lot about stoicism that should be applied to our lives… and I read an interesting guest post on my friend, Evan’s, blog that you may want to check out πŸ˜‰

And the guest post took me to the guest site… and I really liked this particular post too πŸ˜‰ Which has some really great tips on living life deliberately, despite anxiety.

And I am going to end this post with a picture that appeared in my ‘memories’ on Facebook. It was a picture that I shared three years ago on there, and I am SO HAPPY to have had that memory pop up as a reminder :

May you ALL be breathtaking this week! Much love sent out into the universe for you all. ❀

  1. Good morning my dear friend,
    I really enjoyed reading this post and the word that sprang to my mind was expectations.
    I say this because in today’s minefield that we call life we expect so much of ourselves and others especially with the connectivity of social media.
    I am really glad though that you have had some rest because of your health, I know from past experience how difficult that can be and now listen to my body a lot more than I used to.
    I really do appreciate your posts and your positive outlook on life and our journey through it.
    I hope that you have an amazing week and my thoughts and prayers reach out to you and your family πŸŒΉβ€οΈπŸ€—

  2. Dearest Meg, how are you doing? Have you been getting plenty of rest? I pray so! You most certainly deserve it. Please, never ever, feel that you need to apologize for getting ‘behind’ on blog posts, etc. We all love you and understand how life can be. If someone doesn’t understand this, that isn’t a worry you need to carry. You are loved for who you are, and when you are able to comment, you are always appreciated! When you simply can’t, for whatever reason, you are still loved and appreciated! ❀

    I must say, I LOVE that quote. What a perfect reminder that imperfection is breathtaking when we embrace it. Growth only comes when we love where and who we are right now in this moment. Giving ourselves grace, in the same way we give others, allows us to bloom right where we are. From there, the glorious beauty only spreads out to others who need exactly what we offer.

    You take all the time you need, my friend. πŸ€— I, too, am terribly behind. Shoot, who am I kidding! I feel like I’m perpetually behind any more! Please know that I am sending you my heartfelt love, prayers, and many hugs.
