I made a big decision 10 days ago. To let go. To let go of all hurt. All anger. To forgive and forget. To open up and be receptive to the universe and its loving again. And that has made all the difference.
I had brought down the shutters after a meaningful relationship went pear-shaped early this year. Perhaps its a natural reaction and nature's way of self-healing, although some people leap from one relationship or marriage straight into the next, not taking time to reflect, improve self-awareness, seek feedback or learn from why and how you got there and what is the meaning of it all.
Each to their own, but I think if you dont have a period of quarantine, you could end up repeating the same patterns or attracting the same type of mis-match to your wants and needs.
When you are down there in the dark place, your chemistry shows through, just as it does when you throw that mantle off and emerge happy and optimistic and energetic. The lights in eyes start flickering again, the smile plays on lips, the face glows. And what happens? You become a people magnet! The right sort of people! Those who want light and life and love and positivity and hope - with a focus and a passion and a purpose and a plan.
Sounds like such a cliche....but cliches become cliches because they are proven right over time.
Suffice to say, I had a wonderful time in the snow, socialising with fun people, making new friends, dancing for hours and having great conversations with my cubs. Their thoughts are forming and their curiosity about the world and politics, and what makes it all go around, is being tickled.
Back on the homefront, the social calendar is full with theatre, winter season of opera, overseas visitors, tennis and the odd weekend away...so, La Vita e Bella!
Cub1 is still home till 24th and both are with Bluebeard for the weekend, so I have a bit of freedom and will be making the most of every minute! Ben Elton live at the Capitol on Friday, tennis Saturday, dinner party Saturday night and Sunday we start NIDA course to set young Cub on her dream to fame and fortune as an actress.
I have also started my secret squirrel project. The business plan and marketing plan are both advanced, but cant say anymore otherwise it wont be a secret squirrel! But all may be revealed when legalities are taken care of! Suffice to say, much fun is had by all!
Thanks for putting up with me in the Dark Ages. I'm back....better and stronger and happier!
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone ...
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived,
reclaimed and redeemed and redeemed and redeemed. Never throw out anybody. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
