It's okay not to be on top

Hello you lovely lot. I hope you've all had a great short week after the Bank Holiday, my Bank Holiday was so hectic that I'm glad of this coming weekend.

Over the past month or so, I've found myself not to be 'on top' of everything in the way that I usually am. This is something I pride myself on and am known for; I'm organised, I plan ahead, and I know exactly what is happening and when. Not everyone functions in this way, and whatever way you manage it all, is exactly right for you.

Lately, I've let my standards (set by yours truly) slip a little. I don't know whats going on in my week unless I look at my diary. I can't tell you when my next deadline is, I certainly haven't filmed that video or written those blog posts for the next couple of weeks, there's a mountain of unanswered emails, and it's been the best part of 2 weeks since I did any exercise. 

None of this is because I'm sad, or feeling low. I'm feeling low energy, but not low. Some of it is owing to a loss I had last month, some of it is because I'm not feeling well rested on a count of some sleepless nights, but you know what? my world won't end because I'm not on top. Nothing stops because I haven't finished that video, or replied to that email, or gone for dinner with my girlfriends over editing some writing. Life happens, and you need what you need at that time. It's more important to be present than to give yourself that pat on the back for being the most organised person you know.

I'm feeling happy with everything, even though I'm not totally organised, and I'll be back at my classes next week, because I love and miss them, not because I feel I should go back.

I just wanted to let you know that it's okay if you're not on top of things either. Just glide through, enjoy everything and it'll catch up on it's own. The things that matter will push through!
