This is a vertical garden at a friend’s house we saw this spring and I am trying to battle a crippling feeling of overwhelm these days. The two aren’t related, except for the obvious metaphors of a winding tiny path through endless small growths of all kinds... I’m not capable of juggling, a huge list of random small tasks is more difficult for my brain to manage than a long period of immersed focus, and I keep forgetting things (despite my lists), failing at prioritizing, and often feel paralyzed. How do you tackle the things that you have to do that are playing more to your weaknesses rather than your strengths?
Is it just me or some days do you feel overwhelmed with thoughts of possibilities that you end up not doing anything at all? 🤷🏻♀️
Today is that day for me, for the first time in a long time, I had a free day. When I woke up this morning I felt full of excitement of what I could do with my lovely long day. I could go to the library, walk to the river, wander around the little shops and antique places to find some interesting pieces. I was talking to a friend earlier and said "I know I want to do something, I just don't know what it is". ⠀
So what have I done with my day? Well not as much as I should have, I've cleaned, put lots of washing in, ironed, walked to the shop and instead of rushing frantically like I normally do, I took my time, looked at the pretty hanging baskets and gardens, listened to the hubbub (I love that word!) of people chatting in the pub sitting outside. I put the recycling out - whoo hoo (well it was overflowing) and just stood and stared at all the little plants growing in the garden and made small decisions about what do to next, but actually didn't do any of them.🌿
I wrote some emails and listened to an @emma_natter webinar replay about Instagram captions that I hadn't had chance to catch earlier in the week when it was frantic, so I thought I would try a little organic 'captioning'. Her teaching is so good, pure and honest, which I love. So here I am just me, my day as if I am talking to a friend over a glass of wine, good bread and nibbles about my day that could have been but wasn't but actually that it was okay because it didn't need to be busy and crazy, it was just nice to stop and enjoy a day of nothing in particular.⠀
What have you done today? Did you have the kind of day you wanted?⠀

#BABY. TO BE DESTROYED 7/21/2018💔
Hello, my name is RONDO 💙
My animal id is #33620
I am a desexed male brown dog at the #Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about #6months 1 weeks old.
💔#RETURNED AFTER 4 DAYS on 18-Jul-2018 - surrender reason stated as TOO HYPER 😳. #CIRDC
ORIGINALLY CAME IN AS A #STRAY ON 7/08/18. ADOPTED 7/14/18.
INTAKE — Rondo was #receptive to handling. He #allowed to be collared but would occasionally try to PLAY BITE the collar. He would #jump on counselor and try to PLAY BITE. He had a #soft and #wiggly body language.
Previously lived with:: 3 adults, one young child (6yrs). The child interacted with Rondo briefly. Rondo would jump on the child and would sometimes be #mouthy according to adopter. He is very #friendly with strangers and jumps all over them.
NO BITE History NOR Guarding Issues.
SAFER Summary:: Rondo was #soft and ATTENTION SEEKING during his assessment though #mouthy throughout (moderate pressure).
PLAYGROUP 7/8: Rondo is bit #timid in a group of small and large dogs. He briefly engages in short bouts of play with other juvenile dogs but becomes #overwhelmed when his energy level increases. With small dogs, Rondo self-handicaps (lies down) and #solicits play.
7/9-10: Rondo was much more confident today in a group of playful small and large dogs. He did still self-handicap when overwhelmed by the energy of the group.
. ***CONSIDER #fostering, ALL expenses paid for. 🙏🏻EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org if you're local to NY/NE USA & can #adopt/#foster THIS pet.
