Its been a while since I posted – but here I am in 2019.
Happy New Year everyone – go shake it up, chase them dreams, get healthy, be kind to yourself and strangers and your family (you know you wanna), learn something new, set some crazy new goals, get moving and shaking, laugh; a lot and often, let go of your limiting beliefs and hangups. Live your best life possible.
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 about the law of attraction, manifestation and meditation, 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 years 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, although the question in the back of mind is, is this where my home is to be? But, I’m here and I’ve decided to love it a little more while the next path is cleared.
So here’s to new years, dreams, schemes (plotting and planning some big things), creations, love, joy, happiness and flow.
May yours be truly magical.
Oooh, I almost forgot, I’ve wet my toes on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean now!
