Mirror Mirror: a bit of self reflection

It’s not a secret I have been feeling a little low in myself. I think that not working makes me feel like I have no worth, no place in the world plus I want to shop and drink.

I need to sort myself out.




Healthy mind

Tidy home

Happy garden

Self reflection is important, I like to be busy so that I don’t dwell on things. Maybe though I have just been ignoring my inner turmoil. Blocking out my feelings and not addressing my lows. My old boss got in touch to ask how I was getting on which was nice. Even though I don’t want to work in retail was so close to asking for my job back.

I didn’t.

Because I don’t want to work there.

It’s made me focus on my job search.

I need to do a bit of work on myself and that does not mean having a bubble bath ( although I really want one) or having a drink ( I need about 10 of those) also no sitting in-front of the TV disappearing into oblivion.

I have to start somewhere and tomorrow is a new day.

I feel a bit more focussed now, I feel a bit more secure knowing I will plan my next few days and work my way out of this low.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.

  1. You’ve got this!!! Good for you to not take the job back…if it doesn’t serve you let it go.


  2. Don’t do work that feels like a burden.
