30 Chic Days at Home - Day 24 - Go With The Flow

Because none of us have experienced a global pandemic before (I say it so casually, but we are living history in a massive way at the moment!!), we have to cut ourselves a bit of slack.  There is no guidebook for this so we're all just working it out the best we can, and from my experience every day is different.

At the beginning of lockdown, I was determined to be the best me ever once we were past the worst of things.  Decluttered, exercising daily without a prod, and of course, eating healthful home-cooked meals since there wasn't any other option.

Somedays are like that, and some... are not.  Some are woefully lazy.  But I've decided that 'it is what it is'.  If I want the chocolate, I'll have it.  And I definitely have been indulging.  But also, I've been craving my veges and wanting freshness in my food.  Like the body is seeking balance.  Potato chips and broccoli :)

I've been doing my YouTube yoga classes with pleasure too.  Plus continuing with my mending pile and pottering around doing things in the home. I've found that when you take the pressure off yourself to be that perfect person, you find out what you actually enjoy doing.  Fascinating.

I hope you're cutting yourself a bit of slack today, too.

  1. Thank you, Fiona. I've been sewing surgical caps as a friendly volunteer for our local hospital nurses and feeling the pressure of it as if I desperately needed cash and was being paid by the piece. That's not even close to what it is. Cutting myself some slack today. xo karen

  2. Love this. Balance is key. Stay safe!


Merci for your comment. Wishing you a chic day!
