I’ve been away. Literally and figuratively. I took about 9 months out of work and gave myself some time to think about what I want out of life. Now I’m coming back – I’ve started a new job, very different to what I had before and I’m moving forwards to live the life I want to have. It means changing my mindset, learning to say no, downscaling, actually DOING the things that give me joy. Because there is only today.
I’m planning on coming back to the blog more often, but not on a schedule that creates pressure. I’m being gentle on myself and on the world. Life isn’t always good, but mostly it is. I don’t want to look back and think ‘I should have….’. This is it, this is me. More time, more creativity, more home, less stress and tiredness. I want to enjoy my life – in a quiet sort of way.
I’m travelling home from holiday today. We had a great time but I’m looking forward to being back at home. The joys of the mundane!! (Ok, well maybe not the washing!). I’m looking forward to getting back to the sewing machine, to seeing my cat, to weeding the garden and cooking simple meals.
