Skipped the gym this morning, the head goblins won out as just felt exhausted as well as feeling a little bit nervous about driving due to an impending storm (this time it was Eunice that was descending on our UK shores).
It’s funny as when I was in my early 20s, I never thought twice about driving anywhere, with no hesitation or fear of what might happen/go wrong. Whereas now, I often think twice about doing somewhere or doing something for fear of things going wrong or me being in danger, not sure if this is an age thing or more of an awareness of the world around me.
Today was a uni day and had a good session with the 3rd years, the campus was pretty quiet as we had been told to work from home if we could today to limit travel due to the storm, I left earlier than normal as was due to being owed some hours back in lieu as well as wanting to get home so that I was safe and secure in my house.
Over the last two years or so I’ve become a real home bird, I liked being at home before the pandemic/lockdown hit in Feb 2020 but now I love it, I feel so relaxed at home and as I do DIY this year to refresh it I can’t see why I would want to be anywhere else. And it has also made me realise that I can earn money easily from home without doing the mad amount of driving I was doing before. I think the driving will increase this year again as I do still like getting out and about for meetings but some will be done online at times.
I’m finding it interesting to reflect on the last two years and think about the habits and actions that I want to keep doing and the things I want to change, whenever in history have we had the opportunity as a collective to stop and think?!?
