I slept in again today.
When I first moved to Blackburn I got myself into an amazing routine of getting up much earlier than I needed to and starting every day with a little bit of me time.
I became a morning person, which is perfect because I’m a morning blogger.
So I woke up late this morning, I don’t really have anywhere to be until this afternoon, but I know if I had been up a couple of hours earlier I’d have been much more productive today.
One of the first things I thought about as I dragged my dreary brain out of bed was this space here. I didn’t have a post lined up and I didn’t have a single thought in my head that seemed worth writing about.
‘Maybe’ I thought ‘I will just skip todays post’ and then I walked into my living room and the natural sunlight was flooding in, I didn’t put the radio on like I usually do, I didn’t check my facebook feed, or my work emails, I just popped the kettle on and breathed.
I’ve not been making enough silent time lately. Every week is full of work commitments, and my weekends are booked up until mid-October. All exciting things that I am hugely looking forward to, but I forget how much I love a little peace and quiet.
Recently on a morning I’ve been waking up later and trying to fit in a jog too. My mornings are full of djs babbling on, running apps and mental to-do lists. Mornings that leave me both pumped up and exhausted, and not exactly the right conditions for blogging. Or for thinking.
I will admit I have lost ‘it’ a little with this space lately, creative ideas aren’t coming as easily and I don’t spend enough time reading what other people have to say out there in the blogging world, so my new resolution is to make sure I start my mornings a little better, I make my blogging a little better, and I make me a little better.
Live life & make a little time for some peace and quiet x
