So it’s been 3 nights since the man started work on my bathroom, it looks like it’s going to take a while and this made me stress for the first night.
Then it all went away. We’ve said for a while that I actually calm down when there’s big stresses in my life. It seems that I turn into a more ‘go with the flow’ person when there’s something going on in my life that I have no control over. I give in to it and just allow things to be.
This translates into all areas of my life and I am less demanding overall. I no longer plan, I don’t have high expectations of others and just leave them to live their own lives.
I love being this way to be honest. I love not putting so much pressure on myself to be ‘perfect’.
Currently I’m camping in my house with a portaloo and only the kitchen sink to wash my hands, brush my teeth and have a wash in, but I don’t care. I’m enjoying it.
I’ve always been resourceful and adaptable to these situations.
Maybe over the next few weeks I’ll be able to figure out a way to stay like this and use it to cope with small stresses in life (cause I definitely suck with them!)
