Hopefully todays marks the beginning of a bit more content on Lellavictoria.com, you’ll have to forgive my lack of content recently, it always takes me a little while to get into the swing of things in regards to my posts. I also need a bit of time to figure out my blog content (outfit photos aside) for the new year because before the new year it was christmas and before that, the autumn and festive content was in abundant and almost readymade for me, whereas January feels more stark and in need of some thoughtfulness.
Thankfully my ideas, thoughts, and the inspirations I would like to share have come to me in abundance in the last week, my only problem is creating the time to bring together such things. I have felt overwhelmed in a good way with my thoughts and ideas but at the same time I have felt an energetic pull to be careful with not overdoing it or exerting myself, which creates this internal juxtaposition and navigating it is somewhat tricky, not knowing whether to charge ahead or to take it easy. In the end I have decided to go gentle with myself whilst diligently executing my ideas.
Choosing to formulate my plans at my own pace seems like a fair compromise to the contrasting energy I have felt recently. I feel that throughout most of my life I have been blessed with a bountiful of creativity (though I didn’t always know or understand that’s what it was) but I also live with chronic fatigue of the mind and body and learning to live and work alongside the two can be frustrating and i’m still learning how to utilise my creativity in a way that suits my lifestyle best. But for the most part I feel I am making strides and as I have already said I find the best way to do that is to be diligent in my work but at a pace that works for me and so the practice of patience is ongoing but surrendering to the ebb and flow of the universal energy as well as my own is something that resonates and helps me for when I’m feeling frustrated with the fatigue of my body or the fog that hinders my mind.
The photos are from the beginning of winter last year and we had gone to one of my favourite spots where its both very open and also a little more sheltered with a forest of trees. It was a supremely beautiful wintery day and perfect for a long wonder. The air was thick with fog which might not sound beautiful but to me it was. I hope you enjoyed todays post.
Sending you love and light,
