I feel that I should write something. I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to write, but if I don’t write something soon I’ll get out of the habit of writing and that’d probably spell The End for How do you eat an elephant? Which would be a bit of a shame…..
I suppose I should start by filling you in on the last couple of days which have felt like something approaching good. Yes, you did read that right – I said something approaching good! Okay, so I had a minor melt down at the start of the week but it had been a long time coming I suppose and I’ve just about forgiven myself because I feel like I’ve learned some important lessons along the way. Which is no bad thing…..
Important lesson of the week # 1: If you can’t keep going you have to stop keeping going until you’re ready to get going again.
I’ve also been busy taking care of myself and making a plan. It feels like ages since I’ve a) properly taken care of myself or b) had a plan. It feels so much better to have something to aim for other than Eastenders* I’m not talking about any kind of grand ‘sort your life out in four weeks’ plan, more of a ‘let’s get from a to b and worry about c later’ type plan.
Important lesson of the week # 2: You don’t have to do EVERYTHING right now because there’s plenty of time for everything.
I’ve had a few words with ‘the brain’. It’s a ridiculous state of affairs – we can’t hate one another for ever because we’re pretty much stuck with each other** and whether we like it or not we’re going to have to find a way to rub along together. The deal goes something like this: I will nourish rest and generally take good care of the brain if the brain promises to make a concerted effort to stop with all that over thinking it nonsense. In the fullness of time I’d like the brain to give up on all that up/down/backwards/forwards/shake it all about stuff, but hey! At least we’ve got a start.
Important lesson of the week #3: If you take good care of your brain it will be remarkably compliant when it comes to doing deals.
One week. One meltdown. Three lessons. Could be worse eh?
In conclusion I think things are looking okay. That’s as far as my ‘state of the nation’ update goes: WeeGee is okay. Which is pretty much okay.
Never fear – I’ll be back later with some of the more usual rambling idiocy
Love WeeGee xxx
*Yes. I watch Eastenders. What of it?!
**What with the frontal lobotomy being out of fashion and all….
