Busy busy

I know I am always talking about how busy I am, have been and will be. I know lots of other people are busy too. And I know I can’t compare my busy with anyone else’s.

I believe we all choose our level of busy. We choose how insane we make out lives or how relaxed, some of us can balance this and some of us can’t. Some of us don’t like the rush and some of us hate the slow pace.

The love I have for being busy is, I admit, a little odd. Each day is filled with deadlines and planning for deadlines and planning for the planning. I work very hard and am intensely busy most of the time but I equally invest time in ‘play time’ which is complete timeout. Mostly this is only a snippet of time but for me it is always about the quality not the quantity. Work hard to play even harder some say.

Many people don’t have an understanding or can’t manage their busy. It is a struggle and can be quite frustrating. I have accepted that some days my ‘busy:balance’ ratio is on the money and other days it is completely out the window, but why that works for me is because I am totally OK with that! When you have a partner, kids, a business, job, meetings, lunch boxes to pack, washing to sort, animals to feed it’s no wonder it seems overwhelming at times.

So as my dear friends say, sometimes you just have to suck it up princess and do the best that you can. Sometimes you need to know when to ask for help. Sometimes you need to know when to take a timeout. And sometimes you simply have to just play hard. But most importantly you need to figure out what works for you and you alone and do it!

Today is the day … 55km or bust!

Today is the day that proves once and for all how bananas I am!

As you are reading this I am somewhere between Coogee and Balmoral (that’s 55km you know) partaking in the 2015 Coastrek that raises much needed money for The Fred Hollows Foundation.

55km I hear you say? Yes 55 bloody, long, hot, sweaty, chaffing, blister making kilometres! Who the hell does this sort of thing? Probably thousands of people but it’s not something I would ever thought I would be doing.

Big thanks must go to my team. They have endured me huffing and puffing my way over the place. Have made me giggle so hard I now have a much better appreciation of light bladder leakage issues. And have generally made this insane event something to look forward to in weird way.

I know at the end of today I will be extremely grateful that I have made it and at this point 110% certain I will never do it again but never say never hey?

We are still needing your support  and you can go here for more info on how to do that.

But an especially huge thank you to all our friends, family and colleagues that have supported us so far (it means soooo very much) and an extra special shout out to the crew at Amart, Mittagong for donating our rather psychedelic shirts for the event…big heart felt thanks.
