Keeping Up

I am struggling to keep up lately. Are you?

I mean that in terms of almost everything. From simple things like keeping track of when my car needs servicing… to being up to date with episodes of my favourite TV shows. Modern life is just far too hectic!For me, I concentrate on one aspect of life for a while and all the other bits just fall behind and drag me down. I just wonder if life was ever more straight forward?

I am an optimist though and very much a dreamer. In my head the summer will come and I will get to relax and catch up on all those things that are weighing me down. Washing the car, replying to emails, cleaning the kitchen, having a coffee with close friends that I haven’t made an effort to meet up with lately.

Moments with friends help distract from the busy periods. Right now we all have deadlines, tasks to do, exams to take and hoops to jump through. Let’s find a way to do it without burning ourselves out.
