It’s all been getting a bit much for me over the past few days with all the upheaval in my life – moving overseas again, sorting out my daughter’s boarding school requirements and general day to day life.
As an attempt to reduce my anxiety I tried walking the dog, added more points to my ever-expanding to do lists, and generally achieving nothing very much. None of it worked, sadly.
So I looked for some words of wisdom to help put things into perspective a little.
In my particular situation right now, the following spoke to me and helped me feel a bit more sanguine about everything.
