Hello and welcome to Word of the Week!
If you’re new here, Word of the Week is a nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. You reflect back on the past week and sum it up in one word. Then share your word with us in a blog post, with as little or as much explanation as you like. It’s a fun and friendly linky, so please do be lovely and visit as many of the other blogs as you can and share with them your thoughts on their words and weeks. I do comment on every entry to the linky, and if you add the Word of the Week badge to your post to help spread the ‘word’, I also tweet them out.
My word of the week this week is:
It’s been one of those weeks for me. Does everyone have them? So changeable.
It has been a week of two halves, two moods, if you like.
I have experienced huge bursts of motivation where I have been productive. I enjoyed a de-clutter over the weekend and the kitchen and kids’ playroom look loads better for it. I have also had a couple of very fruitful sessions working, getting lots of ideas drafted, posts written, videos created. But I seem to go from one extreme to the other.
For example, I was happily scribbling down lots of ideas for the blog one morning, as I woke up bursting with ideas and some fun thoughts around freelance work. Yet by that afternoon, I was convinced that none of them would work and had lost all interest in developing any of them. By that afternoon!
Then there has been the changeable weather this week. I know that I am happier in the sunshine, so I suspect there may be some correlations with the weather and my mood. And with the cooler days, I am glimpsing September, when the kids are back to school and routine must recommence and for the first time I will have time to work full time here. Which one day fills me with excitement and possibilities and the next with a certainty that it won’t work out. I have veered towards further education, returning to full time paid employment, and then back to here. You see, changeable.
It is frustrating me. I am going with it and maximising those moments when I am feeling motivated. I do have some exciting projects that I am developing. I think the juggle with being here and having fun with the kids, and then getting work done is stretching me a little, so for the next couple of weeks of the holidays I will enjoy having time with the kids and just eke out an hour here and there when they are happily occupied to work. It helps that the Husband has a few days off next week so I will metaphorically down tools then and switch off for a while. Hopefully I’ll then get back to it refreshed and less changeable!
What about you? What one word sums up your week best?
