Motivational Monday: Keeping Balance & Remembering the Little Things
Today is Motivational Monday and this week i have a little message that I feel is important yet easy to forget as you become lost in your busy working week.
I want to share with you something that has made me feel downright awful over these last few days as i feel it something that happens all too often. These last few months i have been completely lost in hustle and bustle from writing blog posts to photo shoots and assignments to exams i have not been able to concentrate on anything else, as though if i let one more thing into my head, i will forget everything else. The other chores in my daily life were chucked on the back burner, bills, cooking, cleaning have all been left to my other half, who has risen to the challenge and been a huge support over the past hectic few weeks.
I thought i had it all under control and although busy it seemed i had all my priorities sorted. This week i was abruptly reminded that this in fact was not the case. This week i allowed myself a holiday, a time to sit back, relax and assess. I have visited family and friends some of whom i have not seen for over a year.
It was during a visit to my grandmother i suddenly realized that i had forgotten her birthday almost a month late. I felt dreadful, what sort of granddaughter forgets her grandmothers birthday and not for a couple of days but completely? I had lost sight of what really matters. Working hard in some areas of my life had meant that i had completely neglected others
To some it may not seem like a big deal but, but to it was. I know my grandmother understood how busy i had been but this was not the point. If it hadn’t been for the support from people such as myt grandmother i may not have had many of the opportunities i have now. My message is simply this; there are times when we are so busy that other things in life get forgotten but take time to appreciate everything and everyone as it is often the little things in life that have got you where you are today.
Much Bespoke Love
