Today’s Reminder

#contentology #bonus #roughingit

I think of roughing it and camping in the same vein, even though it does not
necessarily need to be. It’s more that it is not the way I’d choose to have a
holiday, as there is a lot of work that needs to be done to get ready for it and
lots to do when you are camping (and it’s dirty, with no hot showers!). So
although my hubby and kids love camping, it is not my thing generally, as it
always felt like it was roughing it, a bit too much for my liking.

But in light of no holidays on the horizon that would come close to what I
would be envisaging, at this stage camping does not even feel like it would
be roughing it at all. In fact any break into nature, away from stressors and
pressures, would be quite welcomed! So due to lots of things going on
around us right now, my version of what feels like ‘roughing it’ has drastically

So tonight, even though I’m not on holiday like I was planning to be, I am
safe and well, I have family, food, drink and wonderful people in my orbit,
and have spent three days absorbing amazing information from mentors and
leaders in their field at a virtual conference— so am filled with gratitude.
I hope that you don’t feel like things are too rough for you to handle at the
moment because things can certainly feel incredibly rough. But that you
allow yourself to acknowledge the feelings and then hopefully find something
more positive on the other side.

Sending vibes of a Happy Friday to everyone!
