It’s clear now!

It’s very clear to me now that the energy I had even 5-6 years ago has dwindled with age. The recent shifting that we did has totally exhausted me out.

It wasn’t as if I was the only one doing the move as my daughter was fully involved too, but the stress of getting everything up and running gave me a very bad stress headache for the last two days.

Many pills later……

Now I can finally admit to myself that I’m neither invincible nor infallible. I should not presume that I would be able to;

A. Do it all in a day

B. Nothing will be lost/ misplaced

C. Smooth transactions occur only in movies or dreams.

Since I’ve attained these pearls of wisdom, I’m going to believe that all this has taught me a valuable lesson. Don’t volunteer when you don’t have to!


Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “clear.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

  1. Sadje, I completely understand! I could tell my body was starting to give into age with different chronic illnesses. Then I got hit with 2 1/2 months of COVID-19 and it’s really deteriorated since then. No fun, but happy to still be around (most days). Much love and strength to you! Gypsie

    1. Thanks Suzette! I think if I did this work in a week or 10 days I would have been fine. But my urge to get everything where it belongs gets me in trouble.


  2. A valuable lesson indeed! I actually just text my youngest son to see if he can help me in the garden tomorrow, as I’d like to not end up too weary from the work. 😅 I’m much more tired these days than 5 years ago. Noticeable so. Wishing you a restful Sunday, Sadje.
