Its been a while since I posted – but here I am in 2019.
I trust all y’all had a wonderful festive season and that the new year has started off well.
I had the pleasure of travelling to the USA to visit with my children for the festive season and then the amazing experience of ticking off a 17-year-old bucket list wish. I got to visit with my BOB (Best online buddy) for a few days in Florida. It’s something I’d been dreaming of doing since 2001. The days went by way too quickly though, but I now have such wonderful moments to cherish; until the next time. I cannot thank her and her husband enough for allowing me into their home. I definitely left a piece of my heart behind in Florida and intend to visit again. Oh my, the beach. The beach is what my salty soul longs for. We took a drive up to Amelia Island and I fell hopelessly in love. Next time, I would like to spend a few days exploring more of it.
Do you create new years resolutions? I don’t! I gave up on putting that ridiculous pressure on myself some years back. Instead, I use the ‘word of the year‘ approach which I find way less stressful. My word for this year is ‘create’. I have realised that I have mostly buried myself in the last two years and had not created much. I have spent a lot of time reading and learning to manifest and meditate, but very little time ‘creating’ much more than that. I stopped creating a home and have simply lived in the cottage I rent. 2016 was a tough year – my 8 year domestic relationship ended, my boys moved to the USA – leaving me an empty nester, I worked at a job where the employer was a bully, I had to give up my pets when I moved to the cottage after the home I’d shared with my domestic partner was sold. It was a lot to deal with and I realise fully that I have simply been existing. My ‘home’ still feels like its simply the place I go to change my clothing and sleep. That needs to change. I am ready to ‘create’ a home for myself. I am ready.
So here’s to new years, dreams, schemes, creations, love, joy, happiness and flow.
May yours be truly magical.
