I had thought I had better quickly write a post here to let those of you who are curious, know where I have been for the past few months. I apologise for being absent from this site, but change is in the air!
I am going through a huge time of transition and much of my world has been turned upside down. I have recently made some big outer life changes, and it feels as if the inner me is still struggling to catch up.
Over the past 4 weeks I have; packed all my belongings in to boxes, quit my job, moved out of my apartment, shipped my whole life interstate, started a new job, moved in to a new apartment, entered in to a full blown relationship and bought all new material possessions such as furniture and other items, so that everything around me now looks completely different. This type of change can be quite a shake up and it can take some time to feel comfortable again.
More than anything I am craving routine, stability, consistency and peace. I have been struggling to find any of this lately as I have lost touch with many of the things that I usually have in my life to keep me sane. I have realised how important the little things are to my happiness such as; sleep, waking up early each morning, meditating, preparing my own food, regular exercise, eating fresh food and being able to make vegetable juices, routine, my books, time to my self, my yoga mat, my own bed and time each day dedicated to the things I am most passionate about, such as writing on this blog. It is only now that I am beginning to get all these things back in order. Finally now that I am starting to get these things in place, I am feeling calmer, happier and more at ease in my new life.
While change can be stressful and sometimes very challenging, it often causes us to grow in ourselves and find an inner strength that we did not realise we had. There are a lot of inner learnings and lessons that can be found in the way that we handle change and in our ability to ride this fresh energy and create new opportunities in our life.
I feel this is where I am at now. So much has happened outside of me, and I am waiting for the inside of me to really 'get it'. I want to make the most of this new time. It is a new chapter in my life. There are so many exciting new beginnings and new things to explore. I cannot wait to be back on this blog regularly and I have big dreams to grow and expand this even more.
In the meantime, I hope all of you are having a wonderful 2011 so far. Sending you blessings, love and light.
