On Wednesday I had a very nice and relaxed day at a friend’s place in Lyngdal, not so far from Kristiansand, in the south of Norway. I think I needed that relaxed day. However, in the afternoon and evening I met different people again, and I spent the night at another place than the night before, and then the next morning – that’s on Thursday, yesterday – I met even more people. In other words, I was travelling a lot around for some days, visiting and meeting up with many different people, and I also met people that I hadn’t planned to meet, and my days were very busy and intense. In the middle of it all I didn’t get enough sleep and rest over these days.
After the intensive period of travelling a lot and being very active and social and meeting many people and having little time for myself, when I was back at my parents’ place in Stavanger yesterday I got a reaction and cried a lot after we had eaten dinner. I was very tired and felt exhausted. I was very emotional and cried quite a lot for a while. I believe I was overloaded. I had a feeling of everything being too much for me and that I hadn’t had enough time to rest or to be alone, and I decided I needed to rest. Soon after this I took a time of relaxing and resting alone in the guestroom I used.
After a little time of resting I was social again for a while before I again withdrew to be alone, but this time I withdrew through having a bubble bath in the jacoozi in the flat I visited, a flat my parents rent now. No one in my family had ever tried out the jacoozi before, and I was the first to try it out. It was very nice to use it, but unfortunately I didn’t know how to turn it off, and I didn’t manage to get it off no matter what I tried, and it took a long time before it switched itself off by itself, but my mother had then prayed for God’s help, which was very good, so I believe God helped us, but soon after the fire alarm in the hall way outside the bathroom went off, and then it repeated itself three times! It was so much steam coming from the bathroom. It was all quite crazy and funny. It gave me and my parents a laugh.
It helped to have some time alone and some time to take it easy yesterday, but today – Friday – I’ve travelled back to England and had a busy day and still feel very tired and not at my best, so I feel I need to relax, rest and sleep a lot this weekend and the coming days, and start gathering new strength.
We must listen to our bodies, and we must try to avoid being overloaded.
PS. By the way, today I’ve been very encouraged and happy by a very positive event that took place in my life today, but I can’t tell you what it is right now, but hopefully I can tell you about it tomorrow.
NB! I also want to say that I’ve met my fiance Jonathan again today, and it’s been lovely being with him and enjoying good moments with him again. We’ve got a great future ahead, and I’m looking very much forward to marrying my dear darling, my precious prince and my handsome husband to be, Jonathan, my love.
Good night, everyone!
