On an October catch up…

I’m just going to blurt it out.

My dad would have been 74 today. He passed away in 2014. And I miss him every single day. I don’t sit and mope. But the hurt is still real. And I miss talking to him. I miss asking his advice…

October has been an interesting month. Lots of good things happened. Both in work and personal lives. I know there’s still a few days left in the month, but I don’t see the vibes changing much.

Yes, I’m still working on keeping them relatively separate.

I’m doing better at keeping the boundaries of work and life separate. I’m still working on things to do when I now have the time… I’m a notorious procrastinator at home it seems. There’s this thing called Netflix, you see… but there’s also curtains to be hung, cupboards to be repacked, filing to be done and some cleaning out to be done.

(Note: I’m a nester. A few times a year I throw out things… clothes, handbags, shoes, electronics, unused items… the list continues. The problem is that I’m a hoarder too.)

I’m working on an exercise routine of sorts… walking daily (but I don’t want to do it alone), maybe some Yoga or meditation (for reals). I’m not much of an active person, so this will have to be something I NEED to do…

On another note…

I cannot believe we’re 10 Fridays away from 2017!

There’s still a lot to do, and I’m looking forward to a December break with the family. I haven’t seen them nearly enough, and I need to fix that. I read something today that made me realise that being busy is just a screen, a farce. And I need to make time to not be busy.

Another goal to work towards.

Onto Novemer!
