Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 327 – The Daily Grind

img_00411

“Life is a grindstone. Whether it grinds us down or polishes us up, depends on us”

L Thomas Holdcroft

You picked a good ‘un there, Spidey!

The grindstone is pretty much everywhere in my life right now, from the daily grind, to the tough graft of setting up a new home, to the work graft which will be starting up again tomorrow!

Currently, we are settling up the home office spaces, and trying to get the wardrobe situations under control. I am constantly on the go, it seems, either cleaning, ordering and paying for new stuff, or putting flatback furniture together!

It is definitely a grind, I tell you! But, I’m positive. It will get so much better, because of all the effort we are putting in! Our new home will be polished in every sense of the word, because of all the work we are putting in.

So… tell me, are you following the Euro Matches this year

    Some things just have to be done, Ritu, so it’s best to take it on the chin and get it over with. Anyhow, a new house is so exciting …

    Always polishing up, Sis! 😉 I’ve got used to only thinking positively. If someone tries to force me to think negatively, I get a thirst for revenge. Lol I had my most negative phase around people who thought that salvation would only come after this life.;-) Wish you a beautiful start of the upcoming week! Think positive, and all the doors will open. 😉 Best wishes, Michael

    Sometimes our tasks are boulders, sometimes they are pebbles…as long as the mix stays workable and none of the equipment breaks down, all is good!

    Ritu, interesting question to ask ourselves. Maybe it depends on how close we get to the grindstone? Keith

    Wow, that’s a great quote, sis! To me, it is one of the best you shared. Grounding can go two ways, which one we will experience is up to us! Love it! Wishing you good polishing progress for your home, sis!

    Polished, I hope, but sometimes it does feel a bit like being ground down. Things are looking up, though. Today I’m off to meet some friends I haven’t seen since last March. 🙂

    Definitely being polished here! I have a huge amount of freelance work on, but it’s (a) helping me to write faster and be more efficient and (b) making me think about prioritising things that I really want to do, such as fiction writing.

      It’s all about prioritising, isn’t it? If you allow the mundane to build up chasing the dreams, that’s when we get ground down.
      A bit of both keeps us polished, and up to date!

      Thank you so much, David. It’s hard work, and sometimes it feels like we are being ground down, but no, actually things are going to be great once we’re settled!
