This week I am rushing all over the place. As usual I have taken on too much because of my fear of letting people down and not saying no! It is partly to do with my fear of ‘missing out’! I sometimes wonder if this is the result of being the eldest of a lot of siblings. I am also a people-pleaser – not so bad as I used to be, but the traits are still there on occasion. I also think that it is due to the fact that this week is the Legoland Event for the MAD Blog Award finalists, we are moving house, then it is BritMums Live and then we got on holiday! Phew!!
So, I had to write something a little different this week for Prose for Thought in keeping with all of this.
Don’t forget that Helen and I are starting our new BritMums Poetry and Prose Round-up on Wednesday 3rd July and I will be first up with all my pick of the posts :). Please get in touch if you have something you would like me to read.
Swimming, full of things, cotton wool-stuffed,
Taking in too much, remembering too little, needs some space
Tired but can’t sleep, aching without reason, not fast enough
Making mistakes, rushing things through, I need you to work
Don’t let me down, take me to places, rest is not an option
Bothering me, caring for me, just being her
Helping where he can, a similar wavelength, showing his strength
Piling up, trying to prioritise, need to be ticked off
Manic yet happy, busy yet calm
