Make It Stop!


How did it get to be eight days into February already?  Someone please tell me?

It only feels like the other day I placed the good dinner set back in the plate rack to collect dust for another year.  It’s going too quick!  Make it stop!

The first three weeks after Christmas I was into everything.  Up early – things to do.

It didn’t last.

Our house is 55 sq metres under roof.  That’s our living area, double garage, granny flat and 8ft wide veranda surrounding the entire house.  Seemed like a good idea almost 18 years ago.  Now I wish that the veranda and outside walls would bloody well wash themselves – like a self- clean oven or a frost free freezer.

It’s not hard work with the pressure cleaner, just very wet and very time consuming.  I’m over the spider webs and mud wasps moving in behind me as I go.  Not to mention the resident blue tongue lizards that pop their heads out of the garden while I’m out there scaring the baby cheeses out of me because… head like a snake!

I’ve lost my mojo a bit in all areas of my life.  Just when I thought I was turning the corner a little more I’ve hit a pot hole on one side and a deep rut on the other.  Bright side is I haven’t rolled backwards but I’m a little stuck in the one spot right now.

Why?  Well that’s something I’m not obsessing over trying to figure out because when I do it makes my head hurt.  I did think it may be a good idea to take stock of where I’m at and see if that helps me find some more traction.  You never really know where your clarity might spring from.  It certainly doesn’t come from worrying and obsessing, willing a light bulb moment or two to appear.  Nope.

Clarity, more often than not, comes as a result of gentle wonder and self-kindness;  void of expectation for instant transparency willing a light to shine the way forward.

So… I’ve taken a leaf out of Pip Lincolne’s book from Meet Me at Mikes and decided to take stock of where I am at by pondering over some word prompts.

I’m going to take my time with this exercise so I’ll be back to share my thoughts here on Sunday.  I hope you can join me?

Before I sign off I’d really like to thank you all for reading and supporting Sandra Kelly – What Lies Within.  I appreciate you coming back time and again to read my thoughts, leave a comment or send me emails.  You and this space are very important to me.  With all my heart, I thank you.

See you Sunday!

So tell me – how is the New Year treating you so far?

Have you fallen in an unforeseen pot hole too?

    I swear to god this mojo thing must be astrological because I know a lot of people feeling the same way (present company included!) Here I was thinking that 2017 was going to be kick-ass after the disaster that was 2016….

    It was only yesterday you placed the good dinner set back on the shelf, wasn’t it? That little man in that little room in the centre of the earth is winding the clock faster and faster! And maybe you worked your Mojo just a little bit too hard and she’s gone on strike going give a girl a rest ffs. 🙂

      Ha ha, where were you watching from Majella? Maybe I should wrap that dinner set indivdiually with glad wrap? Take that dust!

      We definitely need to distract that little man from turning the hands of time too quickly.

      Maybe my Mojo thought it should be having all of January off and cracked it big time?!

      Thanks so much for stopping by Majella. 🙂 Xx
