Six months after about as many life changing events as I could possibly manage and I’m looking back and reflecting on my life.
I am proud of myself for still standing, that is important to acknowledge. It seems the universe is going through a period of change – with several of my friends ending what seemed like life-long commitments.
It took a lot of energy to bring my mind around to the idea that marriage isn’t always forever. This goes against everything I signed up for and believed. I couldn’t understand why there wasn’t any attempt to save it. Thankfully having time to myself in Spain allowed me to process those feelings pretty efficiently rather than being distracted by the hustle and bustle of London.
So I found a job, and one that I am really enjoying – it is fun, diverse, interesting, somewhat challenging at times and uses much more of my skills than any of the previous jobs I have had.
I’ve also reflected on my journey, and taken the conscious effort to grab life, take opportunities that come up, and to go with the flow. Yes I am on a different path to what I thought I would be, and yes it isn’t quite what I expected; but it is actually working for me.
I appreciate the little things in life more, I don’t have a stressful job that eats into my social and private life and I’ve actually reconnected with a pretty amazing person from my past who I probably should never have let go – although timing is everything and it wasn’t right before.
I guess I don’t really know what is next, what is around the corner, and where I am heading – but that is ok. I have my health, a roof over my head, a job and a lovely lady. What more could a girl want?
