It will go down in history, and not just because of my 50th Birthday!
We are experiencing a new phenomenon, a pandemic, and the whole world has changed as we know it.
How are you coping?
I have lost ALL my teaching and this week also lost my admin job I do at home, well not lost, but we have been ‘furloughed’ a word not even in my vocabulary just two weeks ago. I have managed to score a mortgage holiday so I am able to survive thankfully. There are many many way worse off than me.
So, how am I coping? Well in all honesty, and it’s just a week in for me as I had work last week, I’m doing just fine. I feel like last year was training for how to live alone and barely ever see anyone. Before Covid I struggled and felt a bit guilty that my normal social self had withdrawn from society, only wanting to be with close friends and family, and even then small doses was enough. So, thanks peri-menopause, you finally came in useful for something!
I do, of course, have plenty of time….which is an absolute luxury, especially as I am still getting paid during my furlough from the pain clinic. I’m spending more time getting back to a personal yoga and meditation practice (more on this in yoga post) and I am making a promise to myself to write a bit more on the blog, which when I was travelling was one of my favourite things to do, but then I got too busy or just too tired (more on this in the menopause post)
Other than the global pandemic – I turned 50! I went to Mexico! I literally was living my best life until March 19th when I came back to the UK.
So, I’ll sign off this short post with some photographs of my holiday and will be back soon with my musings on yoga and the peri menopause…..
Love and light,
