When the going gets tough…


… the tough goes crocheting!

It’s been a tough couple of weeks — a health scare, big projects (one of which is stalled, argh!), difficult cases/patients, not to mention the guilt of not giving the family my 100%

Overwhelmed? I guess you can say that. I sit in traffic analyzing the situation & asking myself some difficult questions. No wonder I feel so T-I-R-E-D.

This afternoon, I went to church & ran an errand for the Little Girl. Then, in the evening,  despite the huge urge to plunk myself on the couch & drink decaf while browsing Instagram, I gave in to hubby’s request: for me to bike around the village with him as he ran (he’s preparing for a duathlon). Hearty dinner. Then a bit of crochet for a friend (this one is long overdue). Somehow, I feel refreshed!

Where did I read it… something about the things that should be done that are left undone being the most tiring & distressing? How true!

So, the cure to my stress — however weird this sounds — is not to rest on my laurels but to do more tasks, especially the ones that have been hanging around for so long on my to-do lists. To spend time with loved ones. To honor their simple requests. To count my blessings.

Despite all the challenges of everyday grown-up life, there is always so much to be thankful for.

    And that’s a particularly pretty square; looks very much like a dahlia bloom.
