Busy Bee? Naah!
A few months ago, I went to my yoga class, and on that evening, for no apparent reason, nothing seemed to function properly. Normally easy moves were an incredible effort, so as my lovely teacher Kathy always suggests I listened to my body and worked to my limits. I got so much from that class and today I've been putting what I learnt into practice. I've enjoyed many cups of builders strength tea that is never available in foreign climes and listened to Radio 4 as well as walking to and from school, made in-roads in the holiday washing pile, took a bunch of toys to the charity shop, had a nap, filed some metal and played with a rolling mill at jewellery evening class. And I worked out that our trip away was over £1,000 below budget! This bodes well for seeing our friends and the Rockie Mountains again much sooner than we'd originally planned.
The day has reminded me, not for the first time, that sometimes goals need to be thoroughly revised, often on an ongoing basis. Our mental and physical capacity changes and on those days when peak performance isn't possible, it's good to accept how we are and work within our limits. After all, tomorrow is another day.
