Day 326 – 327 ~ April 26 – 27, 2013

I have been overwhelmed by a wave of tiredness that I couldn’t quite shake over the last two days.
Rather than finding a reason for it or a solution, I simply allowed myself to be tired.

I am also questioning myself a lot.
With no answers.

Tired, depressed or just confused.
I am still grateful for…

Day 325 – April 25, 2013

I started off today feeling so low energy and almost completely deflated.
Somehow I got myself to work.
And I was greeted by the sweet kindness of my colleagues.
They were all so concerned with why I was the way I was.
Then Olivier took me out for a coffee, and I was reenergized after a good chat.

I am thankful for…

1. My colleagues.

2. Chatting with Olivier about my presentation at the British Chamber.

3. Sharing excitement with Olivier because he gets SO excited!

Day 323 ~ Day 324 – April 23 & 24, 2013

The week had just started, somehow I am a little more tired than usual.
Although complaining does not change things, I feel I have to be more honest sometimes with myself. And I am honestly tired.

I am thankful for…

1. Making tiny progress with my meditation practice.

2. Successful workshops with great participants.

3. My beautiful colleagues with hearts of gold.

Day 317 – day 322 ~ April 17-22, 2013

Busy-ness, business and to top it all off, a bout of existential crisis.
All of the above caught up with me and I chose to sleep instead of write or doodle.
Didn’t do me much good, and I am still tired, so I return to my list and my doodles.

Over the past week, I am thankful for…

1. Having a mild case of existential crisis – without one, I would not exist.

2. Meeting someone who frightens me, challenges me but also teaches me.

3. Catching a glimpse of my many other facets.

8. Realizing how much more I have to learn and experience yet.

9. Questions.

10. Searches.
