I started writing a book…..
Many of us think we have a book in us, I certainly do. However, to write a book requires a tremendous amount of time, dedication, thought and most importantly emotional energy.
I didn’t get past half a chapter or so, however, I am proud of what I did write and I certainly found it cathartic and thought provoking.
I thought it might make an interesting series of short blogs. The emphasis is upon looking after ourselves. We have to ensure we are “fit enough” to manage our work and family life. Driving ourselves to burnout helps absolutely nobody.
Here is an introduction I wrote around 12 months ago:
“There’s an event. a catalyst in your life, some bad news, a diagnosis, something from the past re-appears. It floors you – how do you cope? Where do you turn? Who do you turn to?
For me it was a piece of overwhelming news the type that sends you on a seemingly never ending downward spiral. Anger, dismay and deep, debilitating sadness. Something that feels unrecoverable from. My view of the world changed.
No one will understand, no one wants to hear such news.
But here I am happy, running a business and very proud of my family, five years on from that terrifying news.
What did I do to support myself and my family? I subconsciously created my support package and you can too…..”
Just from this short introduction you can start to see why I feel the work I do and in particular the Indulgence Evenings are so important to me. I offer you choices on how to support yourself through whatever you are going through. They evening is about indulgence, however, for me the therapies and treatments are about support and at times survival.
I have and do use all these therapies and more at times. Many of the therapists and practitioners I have worked with, I found them supportive, helpful and I enjoyed working with them.
Come along and meet them (and me if you haven’t already, I am doing a mini-workshop on Emotional Intelligence on the evening).
