Hello, we hope you have all had a good week and aren’t getting buried under too many ‘to-do’ lists? We have had delivery drivers turn up at our door over the last week drenched from driving rain and, at times, snow. We are grateful to them all, as neither of us likes shopping! Love to you all, Tim and Jane. X
I keep flirting with my boss. I have a horrible feeling he’s uncomfortable with it, but I just can’t help myself. JJ, Romford
Tim: Please stop it now. This could spell disaster for everyone.
Jane: Hello JJ, have you paused to ask yourself why you do this, my lovely? Understanding your ‘Why’ is the key to everything you choose to do. Picture me as a best friend with your highest good in my heart, standing in front of you and saying clearly ‘Please stop’. If you continue, this could blow up in all sorts of ways, and you could even end up losing your job. Your boss is in an impossible position, especially given the changes rolling through our society. Out of loving care for you both, start to write down your thoughts before any face to face encounter. Try and record your feelings and the emotions driving you to do this and then let your mind float free on what you could channel these feelings into. Something that nurtures you and brings you solace. Maybe something you have always wanted to learn or try? Our minds are like a wayward puppy, as they can wander off into all sorts of directions. Bring your mind gently back to the thing that you are choosing to do, that nurtures you, every time it wanders off towards thoughts of your boss. Nip this in the bud as soon as the thoughts start, and then new actions will follow. Gently, you will find you can think of new thoughts and act differently. Hugs. X
We have new restrictions and are now wearing masks again in shops and on the buses and trains. I am so tired and found myself going into my usual grocery store without wearing one after work yesterday. I got some strange looks, but there were others in there who weren’t wearing one either. I am weary of being told what to do and have a horrible feeling the government are building up to telling us about other restrictions around Christmas. I am so fed up with all of this. JT, Halifax
Tim: After all these months I’m sick of it too but it’s for the greater good.
Jane: Hello JT, wrapping you in soft hugs. The pandemic jolted everyone into ‘fight or flight mode’ and we stepped up and have all done our best. It has rolled forward for over twenty months now and it is no surprise that you are weary. The energy in all of us has taken a direct hit, and the daily fear we have had to cope with has added to the fatigue. It is natural to feel that too much is being asked of us, to step up again. Do what you can manage, my lovely, as judgment is rife, and I am not going to add to that noise. Self-nurture and self-soothing are so important right now. Flow these to yourself as often as you can. I have a saying that has helped me through the toughest of times and it is this…’Every storm runs out of rain’. Hugs. X
