Back to the drawing board/ 04.05.11

I write this blog feeling incredibly refreshed following an hour in the gym and 20 minutes in the steam room and sauna. It’s amazing how a little exercise can give you an immediate kick and new lease of life. Love it! Now that my mind and body have been debugged, my line of thought feels a lot cleaner and less sporadic and confusing.

This week I woke feeling like I had lost my set focus, and was drifting further and further from the set of goals I have set for my life. My mind felt cloggy and everywhere. My aims seemed to have been lost amidst the day to day struggle and I had this niggling feeling of discomfort that I was just drifting along. After much reading of my Bible, prayer and thought I realised that I was being a typical woman and over thinking things. I also reigned in the monster of impatience that was threatening to set fire to my plans by literally burning them out to ashes. Methinks impatience is deadly.
Nevertheless it was good to revisit the drawing board of my life again and make sure that the map was still there.

Compass in hand – treading North.



About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: My literature blog: NMx
