Some short musings for this season of summer.

Summer musingsHoliday season is upon us, or at least those of us whose lives are currently dominated by the school calendar.

And so, musings over these next weeks will be shorter and somewhat sparser.

One of the joys of being self-employed is the freedom to have time available during the summer holidays.

One of the challenges of being self-employed is actually getting any work done during the summer holidays.

But going back to my own musings on choice, and how precious and transient life is, I recognise what a precious gift it is to have this time with the younger nearest-and-dearests.

June and December are often the most ludicrously busy months in the year, at least from the perspective of having young people to herd about into various end of term activities. And ironically, it often means that – again, for me at least – I arrive at our holidays in a frazzled, frayed-at-the-edges, incomprehensible heap. Brain weary and a wee bit fried. Needing to clear out space and free up memory.

The joy of summer head space!And that, often, is the joy of holidays. I realise that time away with family that you get on with, in a place that is what you need it to be, is a luxury for many. And I am so grateful for the privilege of being able to do just that – sun, relaxed extended time together, good food and wine, lots of books, swimming, games, a little gentle sightseeing.

But I also recognise that holidays for me are a time to switch off mentally to all the normal routines, planning and decision making that make up normal life. And that is the best bit – brain space, mental and creative energy, time to reconnect with what is most important.

To stop, step back and let my soul catch up. To remind myself of what is most important. And then to endeavour to not fill up my life to capacity again once normal service resumes.

My sincerest hope is that you have a chance over these summer weeks to empty out your brain a little of what fills it normally, and to be refreshed, restored, renewed to the unique and marvelous you that you are.
