This last week has been a bit of a week…have you found the same? I have spoken with a few friends about it and it would seem I am not alone. It has felt like a week of frustration, disruption, resistance and a feeling of wading through mud almost. It has been such a strange week that I have given up getting exasperated and started laughing at everything as it happened. I did check to see whether it was a full moon time and I wasn’t surprised to hear hear that there was a full moon this last weekend.
These times can be challenging for us as they often force us to acknowledge our internal struggles and deal with our mindset. In the past, I have found that when going through one of these phases that it has often been a time that precedes change and sometimes even a breakthrough, but learning to sit with this and believe that better times are coming can be tricky.
When I am stuck in one of these phases I try and be kind to myself. It’s surprisingly hard isn’t it. I try and sit and listen to what my body and head is telling me I need, and I make time for that. This week I took time out for a visit to the NGV with my daughter and we had a wonderful day. So nice to be back in the city again.
We often get caught up in what we ‘should’ be doing and tell ourselves we don’t have the time to do what we need for ourselves. You make time for things that matter and you matter.
This too shall pass x
What inspired us this week x
Visit to the Triennial Exhibition at the NGV
Feeling the need for a change of scenery and day away from work I took a day out and visited the Triennial exhibition at the NGV. I went with no expectations, even though I have seen so many friends share their experiences on Instagram, but was so impressed with this exhibition. Such variety and truly something for everyone. The way these artworks were displayed was innovative and so inspiring. It was so lovely to be back in the CBD again, sitting outside in the sun drinking coffee on Southbank…bliss
