Emily and I in Paris - Day 44
i'd like to tell you I've been really busy.
I'd like to tell you I've been writing my newsletter, video-ing my new E-course.
Or even going for a run or doing something useful.
I'd like to.
Yesterday, I started to feel overwhelmed. How can you feel overwhelmed by work when there is no work?
Yet this lockdown is a peculiar beast. Yes, I have nothing concrete to do, my diary week-to-view is as white as my no cruises this year untanned skin. There is literally nothing I have to do. No deadlines, no timescales.
On my to-do list is to share my book to a million readers. i want to make a 4 week "How to be a happy manifester!" e-course complete with video instructions and handy pdfs. I'd like to make a speaker showreel and create a Book Club zoom interview offer. I want to craft my new keynote and write my email list newsletter. And this blog of course.
Instead, I noticed that I had got through 5 Fingers of Fudge instead of dinner. If you are British and anything near my age, you will remember that that "A Finger of Fudge is just enough until it's time for tea!" While this may be true, necking Five Fingers of Fudge is a definitely a warning sign of stress. For me anyway.
Noticing this, I decided to take the pressure off and watch a comedy instead. i found a Netflix series called Emily in Paris. It features a razor thin, beautiful, optimistic American character who moves to Paris and battles her way against a cast of stereotypical French characters and situations. It's probably racist, sexist and definitely thin-ist. But I enjoyed the first episode, and the next, and the next. Now it's another day and I've watched another four episodes. It's probably not everyone's cup of tea. But you know, it was mine today.
I have to admit I've actually had a lovely two days. I had a good walk through a misty morning, then fired up the wood burner, had some nice healthy food, (roasted carrot soup if you're interested) and Emily. It made me smile. Which is the whole point.
Because sometimes, taking the easy way is the best thing to do.
And maybe tomorrow, I'll feel like doing something productive again.
Love love love
