The dance...

My gorgeous friend Naomi writes about all sorts of lovely stuff. I adore her, and I adore her blog: Under the Yardarm.

I had a brief two minutes this morning to read her blog. I am so glad I did.

She writes of new normal and new routines and it resonated with me so much.

My world is chaos at the moment. Between my Mum, friends, guests, school and work, I am drowning a little.

And the lovely husband is frenetic too. I can see it in his eyes and in his nervous tension.

The kids are quick to adapt and the lovely husband and I will get there too, eventually.

"...the dance of me doing more than him,  then him doing more than me.  No set rules, just each of us doing what needs to be done and supporting each other..."

If we aim for this, we will get there? Won't we? Eventually?

I will try...

  1. Yes, we will! I have to believe that. Xxxx

  2. You will. I promise you. Xxx

  3. I read Naomi's post earlier - and just loved the feel of it.

    The opposite of what it can sometimes be in my household - when the busy madness takes hold.

    I think, the key for me, is to breathe deeply, speak without haste and not be a contributor to the frenzy.

    We'll get there.
    YOU have a loooot on your plate right now. Be kind to yourself.
    :-) xx

  4. of course you will. when chaos descends and becomes the ruler of the moment, each moment must be taken within it's own right, focusing on the now before looking forward. deal with what's immediately on your plate before contemplating the next course of chaos.

    one foot in front of the other, one moment at a time. and you WILL get there.


  5. This REALLY resonates with me. It is indeed a dance; but remember that we are the choreographers so we do have a degree of control over our dance and we can choose to change the choreography if it doesn't suit one of us. So important to look after each other as we dance, too. Thanks for sharing :)

  6. I read our post and then scurried over to read Naomi's. You'll get there Lucy. it's a never ending, always changing dance, but you'll get there. x

  7. Dear Lucy. I'm imagining a swinging pendulum over your life right now and I'm willing it to train itself to swing to the centre and still, every now and then, so you can catch your breath and refill with all that you are. You are so vital in your world. Don't forget to fill back up every now and then. Just for YOU. Love ya. xxx
