Positive Mindset

I made it to the Seychelles and perspective

I got to hug my dad, my friends and family out in Mahé Seychelles, it’s been a very long time. It’s nice to be home, even if it just for two weeks.

It was stressful getting here. My husband tested positive to covid so I had to move out with my mum for five days before. I was stressed and had a headache for a solid week. My test came back negative so I was allowed to fly, I was just by myself. We flew with Emirates so they were great and extended his ticket so I will come out again with him probably next year.

He missed his sisters wedding.

I miss him so much. It is so beautiful here and I often catch myself thinking he should be here, seeing this, tasting this, enjoying this.

It all about how you look at things, perspective is key. I am lucky and grateful to be on this beautiful island, surrounded by friends and family. I get to see my dad every day, for two whole weeks. I get to eat kreole food and have fresh fish almost every day.

I get to dip my toes in the Indian Ocean and swim till my arms ache.

I get to lie on the whitest sand and collect sea shells I never intend to take home. I get to look at all the tropical plants and wonder if they would grow in my English garden or would they prefer to grow inside.

I get to be warm everyday for two weeks. I am happy and I am sad. I made it to the Seychelles but it’s all about perspective.

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.
