Having defined myself for years with the norms of London – Busyness, Action, Purpose – I’m now having to find myself in a new environment. And I ask myself, is living a content life enough?
There are a lot of unknowns in my life currently and no matter how much I want to plan and lock down options and make it all SAFE, I know life just isn’t like that. You need to embrace and dance in the uncertainty.
With the dark nights and end of the year looming, I get into a very reflective frame of mind. It’s time for planning and dreaming. So turn off your brain, connect to your heart and envision your next 12 months.
With the House of Commons agreeing to begin airstrikes in Syria, I am sat here questioning what I can do. Compassion and love seems to be my only answer, but I’m not sure it’s enough.
We tell ourselves stories thousands of times a day but we often view them as fact and truth rather than story. When we become conscious of these stories we can choose to own them and write the ending or just discard them and move on.
Life is what happens when you are waiting. Don’t put your life on hold while you get enough money, get the experience or develop the skills to live the life you want. Embrace this moment , right here, right now.
