This morning I had one of those mornings. I'm not quite sure how it began, I have a feeling it might of had something to do with reading the news about the new Budget or perhaps it was just pregnancy hormones. Whatever the case, I had got myself in a right flap. Sometimes I'm a can be an emotional little Cancerian soul and over the years have found ways to move quickly through my teary, crabby moments. Listening to a fabulous song, watering the garden, having a cup of tea or even spending a few moments on Pinterest can usually do the trick, but this morning the bee was firmly stuck in my bonnet.
All of a sudden I felt totally overwhelmed and unprepared for the arrival of our little bubba, even though I have a few good months up my sleeve. We're not moving into our new nest until next month and as I began to think of all the things I wanted to do, needed to gather and dreamed of creating for our new space, my nesting nature went into overdrive and the state of limbo I'd been experiencing, engulfed my thoughts.
I sat down at the computer to try and take my mind off things and it only seemed to make matters worse. Pinterest was flooded with beautiful homes and nurseries, lovely things to make and buy, leaving me feeling even more upset, like somehow I wasn't doing enough for my little adventurer. As I exited Pinterest in a huff, I remembered this quote.
The most lovely and humbling reminder, to do what you can, for right now. So, with a newfound sense of enthusiasm and inspired by my gorgeous friend Gabby, I retrieved my yarn stash and found a lovely and simple baby blanket pattern to begin making.
I thought I'd share my 'little bee in my bonnet story' with you, in case you've had one of those 'feeling overwhelmed' moments lately too. I love being reminded by a simple few words, to see a frustrating situation from a new perspective.
Wishing you a lovely and inspiring Wednesday.
