The Oxford English Dictionary defines "wellbeing" as "The state of being comfortable...", and although I want to write about wellbeing, getting comfortable became my undoing.
I got sloppy. Instead of doing what I really wanted to do I followed the crowd, or worse, took the easy route.
Then I got frustrated.
Then I got ill.
Then I sat about doing very little and feeling sorry for myself.
And after all that? I got real. I did what I needed to do. And it wasn't easy.
I took a good hard look at what I wanted to do and what I was actually doing to get there, and I laughed at how comfortable I had become.
And finally, I took the giant leap that I knew I needed to take, I got uncomfortable:
- I invested in a course run by some professionals I respect and trust.
- I took a good hard look at what I needed to change.
- I got real, and instead of sitting about feeling sorry for myself, I took action.
It will take me a little while to get completely back on track, but at least I have a track to follow now.
What will change here?
This blog, just like the rest of my writing, will become much more focused. I want to write about:
- Living simply
So that's what you'll see here.
Watch this space...
