Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 227

What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps one in a continual state of inelegance.

Jane Austen

Thanks Spidey, for another apt one!

I am in total agreement with Ms Austen here.

The heat makes me melt.

I glow. (Polite way of saying I sweat!)

Makeup? What’s the point? It slides off anyway.

Clothes? Do I have to wear them?

I am not good in high heat.

We had a day of over 30 degree weather yesterday. Oh boy, I felt it. And the air con isn’t working (again) in my car. Torture!

Today I am taking Lil Man to another cricket match. It is meant to be cooler, but still warm… Will I be able to drive home? Or will I be a puddle on the cricket green?

Definitely inelegance in action…

So… tell me, how do you feel about the heat?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤

“If you’re tired, learn to rest, not quit.” – Anon

Thank you Spidey. Apt for me right now!

It’s been an exhausting few weeks, what with being the taxi for the whole household, dealing with Hopalong Hubby, the kids and their myriad activites that they need be be at, struggling with switching off at home because of everything that needs to be done, reading and writing, for the blog as well as looking at the WIP, along with a tiring term at school where assessments, reports, and the beginnings of preparations for next year are about to commence, and coupled with a wonderful yet busy weekend away at the beginning to see my brother… I am totally done!

Sometimes it feels like the easy way. To think, I can’t do this any more, and give up. No more blog, no more writing, no more stress at work. ( I can’t give up being a wife or mum!)

But I can’t do that.

All these things are what make me, me!

Instead a break is what is needed. And perfectly timed, my school mid term break has arrived. Two weeks of not having to wake too early, and peace from school at least. Though there are still reports to write, I can switch off from that side for a while. I’ll carry on doing all the other things, but at a more relaxed pace… And enjoy them all too!

So… tell me, what do you need to take a break from?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤

“Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.” – Sam Levenson

Thanks for that Spidey!

It’s all to easy, isn’t it? 

To keep putting things off because the time isn’t right.

But if we constantly time check, we are wasting precious time waiting, and checking, rather than doing.

A clock doesn’t wait for the next hour to chime, it just keeps going, chimes, then carries on to the next hour…

I have decided I need to stop my procrastination, and virtual clock watching. I have to get this edit/rewrite underway if I ever want to see my book being published!

So… tell me, what do know you just need to do, not procrastinate over?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤ 

#WritePhoto – Calm

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

Calm
Serene
Ethereal
Crystal clear sky
A true autumn day
Water gently flowing
Lucious green banks beckoning
Offering a place to ponder
The mysteries of this life we lead
Meditation surrounded by nature

Ritu 2018

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 139

“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!
