Where Have I Been?
It’s been an interesting start to 2016 – and if you follow me at all, have noticed I have been posting much less on social media and even my blog has sat with no entries for a little while.
In December I turned 50, had a beautiful and quiet birthday yet fun with my beloved.
In February I decided to head down to Florida for a couple of weeks to visit my dad and step mom for their birthdays. I ended up spending a month there and totally unplugged and hung out at the pool many afternoons, with a little walking, some bike riding and a little yoga – but that was mostly it.
I sat and did very little. It was an interesting time in my life – reflecting – not that turning 50 is bad but I realized that half my life had passed by, and fast!! My kids were off travelling, my dog is getting old and slowing down (13 now) and I got to thinking was I truly living, being and doing what I truly wanted to be doing. How did I spend most of my first 50 years and what did I want to be doing? Where did I want to be living and how?
Health has always been important to me, and I also have shared that I have had my own struggles with things. I looked at where I’ve been in my past and where I am now and where I wanted to go. That is the cool thing about life – you are either growing or decaying, there really is no standing still. Even though time may pass, what had changed for me? A whole bunch of things for sure but I still wanted to expand and take it even further. There are many places I want to visit, many friends I haven’t met yet, many photographs I have not shot yet, unmade recipes, beaches unwalked, business growth not yet experienced, workshops not yet taken, words not yet spoken and art not yet created.
There was still a lot of living to be done!!
I also looked at things I struggled with in my life, my love for eating and feeling healthy, my programming, my desire for more creativity, more photography, more yoga, more travel and how I could combine it all – I am just not a one size fits all type of girl – I want to squeeze more juice out of life!! I want more living!! And I want to be able to share some of my journey, my story so that maybe just maybe it makes a difference in someone’s life!
I’ve really been diving into programming, confidence, my soul, what makes my heart sing, why we are here, intentions, energy, the universe and man I could go on.
It’s been an interesting few months!!
All I can say is I am back, there will be more inspiration, photographs, rants, stories, laughter, love and yes still some recipes just not the focus.
So I do hope you’ll hang around for more and if you like what you see share.
Looking forward to more of this journey in this game we call life!!
