A celebration of frustration

You might have gathered from some recent posts that I’ve been getting frustrated recently.

In fact, I’ve been more frustrated than if I was playing in a tournament of the game that drives you popping mad

The limitations of not travelling, not working and generally not being able to do very much have really got on my nerves.

I’ve been well enough to feel bored and frustrated but not well enough to do the things I want to do.

But we’ve decided that this is a good thing.

It means we’re seeing progress at last 🙂

For so long I’ve just been in survival mode but I’m finally moving out of that now.

Even though this new phase might be bringing it’s own challenges, it’s certainly worth celebrating when we look back at where we’ve come from.

So I will endeavour to celebrate the frustrations and the boredom as progress and focus on how far we’ve come instead of how far there still is to go.

I’ll try and follow the advice about pacing myself instead of going with the instincts that lead to a ‘boom and bust’ cycle (ridiculously hard in reality, let me know if you have any tips on this)

And I will continue to be grateful that I even have enough energy and head space to feel frustrated – that in itself is major progress!
