Today I feel restless….

Today I feel restless….

I am having one of those days. You know the ones where you cannot settle to do anything and you feel as this “lockdown” is neverending. It has been a long time not to go out or see friends. I have “zoomed them” of course but it is not in any way satisfactory not to sit beside them and give them a hug when you meet.

This week we should have been finishing the new cabin. I should have been putting in the bedding, putting the flowers in the vase (bluebells as they are just coming out) and generally making it perfect for the new guests to arrive.

Our campervan should have been arriving too. I would have been getting the cutlery into the drawers, making sure we had beautiful bedding for it, popping some tasty treats into the fridge, putting the bikes on to the bike rack…..

I have had to give myself a good talking to. I reminded myself (again) my Dad had to go to war and saw things “better not discussed”. There are people grieving for loved ones who they will not see again and I am moaning about feeling restless!

I am having it very easy indeed and I just need to gain back my perspective and have some patience!

Patience is something I hope we will all come out of lockdown with much more of. We need to settle ourselves and believe we are on the “home run”.

As Mahatma Gandhi so wisely said

“To lose patience is to lose the battle.”

This is a battle we cannot afford to lose.

Stay patient and stay safe x
