Life lately? More like, no life lately. Apart from commuting to and from work and doing chores at home, I haven’t been doing anything with my life. I’ve just been so tired. Normally, I’d make myself go to sleep at 10-ish because I know I need 8hrs of sleep. But lately, I’ve been feeling tired at 9-ish or so and collapsing into bed. I’m not sure what it is. Also, I could really do with a neck and shoulder massage. Maybe a lower back one as well.
Even though the past week was a real struggle to get through the day, I’ve been doing my best to slow down and appreciate the little things in life, such as cute houses I drive past to see my clients, slightly warmer and longer days, or lush greenery that doubles as a fence (I tried to take a picture of myself in front of this person’s house, but I don’t carry a tripod with me, plus I looked way too suspicious).
Then there’s the bigger things to get a grip on. My Mum finally quit the job she doesn’t like, which I’m so happy about, but also aware that this means I need to be more careful with my finances. Finances in general which I don’t understand as well as I probably should. And I have my own health thing that needs to be addressed.
I read this commentary that breaks your life down into weeks, arguing that we should really make the most of our weeks by making ourselves happy, or working towards improving our future or the lives of others. Accomplishing neither of those things during the week is considered a failure, and I can’t help but identify with that.
