Monday mood

Ice and going outside

The ice has thawed for now, and it is lovely to be able to get out and about more.

I’ve been visited by a fear of falling many times since an accident that left me unable to walk for a year. When when the ground is frosty I often stay indoors.

Creating and caring

As much as I love to create art at the weekend, there was no time for it on Saturday. I had to work. The lovely thing is that my duties were arts and health related, and so work gave me a boost in many ways.

When I was invited to speak at a Parkinson’s Ireland event in Tralee I said yes without thinking about it. On Saturday, seeing over 80 faces in front of me (the photo above below shows a small section of the crowd) I felt nervous. “If it all goes to shit, the world will not stop spinning“, I said to myself, and in the end it was fine.

The lead team were delighted with the turnout on Saturday, and Lisa did a fantastic job in putting it all together. Through chatting with people afterwards it was obvious that many folks felt uplifted. They received lots of useful information and anyone who was at the talk can contact the nurses, physio, and myself anytime to keep the momentum going.

Wellbeing talks

Some people have asked me about my plans for wellbeing talks and holistic sessions this year.

I am now taking bookings for May-November, so if you would like to know more about what I offer (perimenopause is among my specialist topics), send me an email here.

New phase newsletter

My newsletter has been sent out. If you’d like to read it, send me a message through the contact page.

Self-care

Caring for myself is crucial, and my health is priority. Only with this attitude can I serve others.

How about you? Are you self-employed or working in a role with a lot of responsibility? I’d love to hear your tips on self – care in the comments below or by email.

For the rest of the week I’ll be focusing on creativity, and it’s great fun to be working with collage, paint, and drawing. I am also preparing for a community art and writing event, so it’s artyness galore here!

Till next time, take care.

-Kathryn.

      Hi Kathleen, see you in May so! It has given me a boost that you feel inspired. Guess I’d better not post any rants then, ha ha. Yoga is always fully-booked in advance, so check out my yoga page on this website, then get in touch with me when you are sure of your dates to see if we can work something out. I write poetry, stories, and features as well as making visual art. If you write too let me know in your email. Whatever your interests, you’re in for a treat in Listowel.
