My BuJo looks quite empty this week. But that’s because I know and honour my energy levels at the moment. This is a difficult thing for me to do, as I have a tendency to plan too much. That I tend to ignore signals from my body and mind. Because I have so many ideas and projects I want to do.
Leaving a lot of blank spaces in my calendar on weeks I know I will be tired feels like a very mature thing to do.
I was planning on writing this post yesterday, but I decided to go to bed early instead and listen to my body. Today I was substituting in a year 1 class in the morning and in the afternoon I worked in the after-school club. So I planned for rest afterwards. I think this is something I have to do more.
Tomorrow I hope to update my webshop again with a new print I’ve been working on. I might even do it through Instagram, as the last sale went so well and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Apart from the usual daily diddies with editing illustrations and keeping Instagram up to date, I want to be able to lay on the couch watching Queer Eye if I feel like it, or taking long walks in the morning with Lily the dog.
On Sunday the plan is to go for a day trip with the boat, if the weather allows. I can’t wait to feel the salty air on my face.
In addition to my three daily gratitude notes, I will add one word that sums up the day. This is part of the weekly challenge in our Facebook group for Highly Sensitives.
