Feet dipped in causing
Ripples on the lake‘s surface
Pure serenity

The depth of the lake
Hidden by the calm above
Deceptive danger

Forgive Me #MondayBlogs

Forgive me Peeps.

Yeah, that’s me right now… in a constant state of  ‘Meh’!

I am entering the last week of this first term and I think I will be crawling towards Friday. I am really tired. Things have been too hectic for me this term.I ave coped, just about, but it means that many other things in my life have suffered.

I cannot teach, be wife and mum, writer and blogger to the standard that I want, so I am not going to push myself either.

Rather than write posts that are just full of ‘Meh’, I will just do my weekly challenges for a little while. But I will still be around! I can’t disappear completely! My day’s aren’t complete without reading your posts or answering notifications!

Of course, if inspiration hits, I am sure something will end up being published!

So, forgive me if I don’t seem more ‘present’

But I shall be around…

Enjoy Peeps, and try and learn when you’ve reached breaking point, that it’s better to recoup your energy and start afresh, rather than destroy yourself trying to be a superhuman…

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 139

img_00411

“If a person’s basic state of mind is serene and calm, then it is possible for this inner peace to overwhelm a painful physical experience.” – The Dalai Lama

Perfect quote Spidey, form a most serene being too!

I am learning more and more that this state of inner peace is what gets me through on certain days.

But I Smile Anyway is my blog name, because I try to see the positivity in everything, and I feel that having a smile on my face allows me to think about everything with a brighter light.

There are days, and these days have been occurring more often in this academic year, due to my chopping and changing classes mid-week every week, and having some really challenging children to teach, that sometimes I close the door at the end of the school day and think I am ready to speak to Hubby Dearest about packing it all in.

Then I sit back, breathe, write it out, or speak to someone, and realise that once I am calm, things aren’t really that bad. There are folk out there who have my back, people who are happy to give support and advice, and that I don’t really want to quit. I was born to do this, and a little thing like an ‘interesting’ group of children will not get the better of me. I just need to think of other ways to deal with the issues that are arising…

So when you are in a fix, or a pickle, if things have got the better of you, give yourself time and find that core of inner peace. rethink your problems, and deal with them with a fresh, calm head.

We can all do this.

Have a Serene Sunday Peeps!

#SoCS Oct. 14/17 – Well

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “well.” Use it any way you like. Have fun!

Well now, that’s a prompt and a half! Well. Use it any way you like.

Do I think of words with well in them, like swell or jewellery? Shall I write about disembowelling or wellbeing? How about farewells or dwellings? What about being well or unwell? Or do I think of the great British weather and discuss wellies, or wellington boots, as they are officially known?

 

I’m really not sure… my stream of consciousness is veering towards unconsciousness, to be honest! Not from boredom, but more from exhaustion. I’ve had a fraught week at work, and this weekend could not have come soon enough. And so, I leave you with my disjointed, tired thoughts, and hope for a better, calmer week next week!

Happy Saturday Peeps!

 

Friday Funny

I wanted to have something really witty to write about this morning… but alas life did not allow me to do that. Instead, work is dragging me down, being faced with some huge responsibilities (which I can handle) and a group of children in a class that I feel I cannot help.

I could have ranted again about the ridiculousness of the Government expectations for children aged 3-5, or moaned about the lazy parenting that results in classes full of children who have no patience, no respect, no clue… but I won’t.

Instead, let me share some Friday Funnies I found on Google, I needed a giggle, and I believe everyone could use one at some point… It’s Friday after all!

I did so well with my weight loss… then holidays happened and a little of the weight crept back… I’m still attempting to eat well, but the naughty snacks keep appearing… maybe I should just accept that my real true love (apart from Hubby Dearest, and my family!) is food!

Unless it’s my birthday or the holidays, then yes please! Can I exchange my Mondays too? I’d rather have Sundays!

I LOVE you Friday!!!!!!
