After the breakup, one of the main things I was concerned about was how I was going to continue living my life outdoors. My ex was my adventure partner. He helped plan things. He challenged me. He took me places. Being in the outdoors became part of my identity, but without him – was I […]
Today I realise that the Universe has a plan for us all. The reason behind this realisation is because today…
I brought home the beautiful print created for me by Philip Abang. Philip asked to take my words and use them as part of his project. I am so greatful for the beauty he has brought to my words. You can read how it came about here
I’m not good at identifying and setting goals. I’m more a ‘trust the Universe’ and a ‘let it happen’ type of person.The Universe is taking my little steps and reflecting them and more back to me. When I shared my first blog post I couldn’t have imagined that blogging would bring me to a much more positive place. A place where I’ve written over 300 posts some of which are part of a series on bullying and its impact on us as a family, with a focus on recreating a better life beyond bullying.When I started out I never thought about what time and a little blogging could open up to me.Now I know I only have to keep blogging, keep sharing and encouraging… the Universe will bring about the rest.
I read and follow quite a few blogs and I find it hard to believe that just two years on from my first post I have penned or typed over 200 posts!
When I started I had just a few visitors and it was such a buzz to have someone add a like or better still a comment!
Now I have a few more visitors and coming to know you has been so interesting. I’ve really enjoyed your company over the past few weeks while I’ve been on sick leave from work. Thankfully I’ve been feeling a little better the past few days and I am hoping to return to work next week. Your visits while I’ve been at home have helped lift my spirit and your comments have been so encouraging! To thank you I thought you might like to engage in a little bit of time travel this Friday and maybe if you find it enjoyable you’ll travel back in time with me again next friday. I thought a link back to a little piece of me before we came to know each other might help us get to know each other a little better!
This week it’s Welcome to ‘Create Space’
So you might well ask, has my perspective and life changed… Well that’s a big YES! I’ve come a long way from when I first started blogging. I’ve learned to live in the moment more, I’m enjoying the journey, fitting in some new experiences and I’m definitely less concerned about the destination. Your comments have widened my perspective and helped me be true to myself. I’ve finally allowed myself lowered my mask and I’ve learned to let myself just ‘be’. Thank you all for your wise insights which helped me do just that!
Now what about you? Has the last two years changed your life? Do you value the journey over the destination? Have you stopped to consider if you are further than you think? Please feel free to leave me a comment below and share any thoughts you have. I promise to reply as quickly as I can.
I’ve decided to take just one minute of quiet time. Just one minute to pause. It’s been a busy day and my energy reserve is low.
I’m going to look around me and be grateful for where I am and what I see. I’m going to be grateful for what I managed to achieve today even if it wasn’t what I had hoped to achieve.
I might focus my thoughts on somebody I love or somebody I haven’t been in contact with in a while. I might think of you, my blogging friends. I might think of a deceased loved one. Or maybe I’ll focus on a favourite quote or recite a mantra.
The 60 seconds will provide time for a little quiet space within a busy day. I’d love you to take just one minute with me today. Maybe we can make “Just One Minute Monday” a regular weekly habit.
What do you do to take just one minute of quiet time?
