a bit of a story to share, but its worth the read!
Last night I woke at midnight with a thumping headache. It wasn’t from one to many wines, lord knows I wanted one or two, or from stress or anything logical. Maybe I put the voodoo on myself….before going to be I proclaimed to my hubby that I was sick of the heat, sick of feeling sweaty, sick of being thirsty, sick of drinking soooo much water that I have to go to the bathroom all the time…
I think you get the picture. So when I woke with a head ache, I thought “serves myself right. Just get on with it, its not going to last forever.” I took some headache pain relief, which I almost never do. I like to think + believe that my body can heal itself, but I just wasn’t up for the pain this time round.
I woke this morning to the sound of rain. Beautiful, calming rain. I gave away my 5am rising and stayed in bed and just listened to the rain. So grateful it was a little cooler, even just for a few hours.
This frustration has not only come from the weather. I’ve been retaking product photos and updating descriptions, which was fun at first. But I’m so over it. Yes Inner Rebel I hear you!!
Hoping back on the horse today to get this project finished I detoured a little into blog land. a little time out doesn’t hurt right?…. Where I discovered Kylie Johnson, at Instinct + Grace ; an amazing ceramic artist and poet who is selling to Anthropology. So what’s the big deal?….she’s Australian!
This fuels my fire. It encourages me to push through those times when I’m feeling hot and sweaty, to push through the boredom of the tedious, it encourages me to think “if she can do it so can I”.
So that’s where I’m at, knowing that the rewards do come with effort, knowing that what I’m doing is worthwhile, knowing that my Inner Rebel can go crazy after this project is finished, that I can turn the fan on and sing into it like the kids do, till I’m happy to come back to the computer and that Self Discipline is challenging but also rewarding….and just maybe I might indulge my cravings for spanakopita, chocolate and a journal page!.
