Nothing is as it seems ... I feel tired before I get out of bed in the morning ... My first mission is school lunch. How am I going to make it nutritionally sound today? The media has done a great job of brainwashing me. Should it be a protein? Not too much sugar? Oh, is today "waste free Wednesday"?
My heart palpitates at the thought of penguins floating on a sea of plastic as I recycle the strawberry and tomato containers. I feel overwhelmed by guilt ... an earth polluter at large! All this before I have managed to chug down my luke warm tea. Now I must make sure the kids have all the necessary paraphernalia for the day: musical instruments, library books and after school activity equipment. I am overwhelmed, it's no wonder that we have anxiety and sleep issues.
And I'm not dressed yet ... Work demands that I look elegantly understated. Aren't we all selling something? It's like when you see someone who looks good and seems to have there act together you think "I'll have what she's having" ...
But, nothing is as it seems.
Don't be fooled ... life is hectic. We're all struggling to get through the day in one piece. We all fantasise about going to live on a island and drinking cactus juice for breakfast lunch and supper, but that ain't going to happen. Although its a bit shallow we'll have to settle for a mani, a little retail therapy, the odd yoga class and coffee with a mate. A little kindness and shared empathy goes a long way. #mondayblog#finejewelsbyclaudia#jewellery#jewellerydesign#jewellerymaker#jewellerylover#jewelleryaddict#jewellerydesigner#jewellerygram#jewellerymaking#jewellerylove#handmadejewellery#jewellerylove#jewelleryoftheday#jewelleryshop#jewellerybox#finejewellery#bridaljewellery#contemporaryjewellery#jewellerytrends#luxury#luxurydesign
HUGS NOT HUGS
Were I to tell you I love Hugh
You’d likely think that I said “you.” Freaked out you’d say, “I like you too.” But I don’t mean you, I mean Hugh.
Why can’t I love a Phil or Keith,
An all too easy Cliff or Heath?
To simplify, I x’d a letter,
Then added one to make it better.
It’s Hugs I love so very much,
The person though, and not the touch.
Embraces irk me to the core
Except from Hugs who I adore. —David Sedaris
