Starting the New Year With an Appropriately Titled Jigsaw

‘Life in the slow lane’ jigsaw

What an appropriate jigsaw to do to mark the start of a year where I want to start taking life at a slower pace. Thank you Mum for lending me this last year, I never noticed the title until today 😀.

Today has been a quiet one, pottering about tidying up and also lounging around listening to podcasts and audio books. One particular podcast was by Dr Rangan Chatterjee interviewing Edith Eger. It had such powerful messages in it that I had to make some notes. My notebooks were right there in the drawer next to me from when I sorted out the drawer the other day.

I’ve also downloaded Edith Eger’s book called The Gift which is about her life as a therapist and a Holocaust survivor. The stories of her life and the lives of her patience are very interesting and eye opening so far.

I know that I said that I wasn’t going to post daily this year but during a lovely Skype with my mum and dad this afternoon, my dad said how much he enjoys getting up in the morning to read my posts. So, I thought I’d sneak this one in for you dad!

Until next time…
