My Life Now :)
Here are some of the dreams I’ve been able to follow over the last few years all the wonderful things I’ve done and the joys I’ve had since I turned my life around. And lets face it... I wouldn’t have had any of it if I hadn't managed to turn things round - it would have been the end of me!
Initially I not only managed to hold down regular work again but I took it one step further and actually started working for myself doing only the things I enjoyed and hours that suited me! And even though I didn’t earn a huge amount, I had a lot of fun with it, received a lot of praise for my work, as well as even more increases in my self-esteem and managed to support myself adequately which was absolutely fabulous.
I worked in the beautiful Lake District in England, traveled to Athens in Greece, Barcelona, Hungary, Latvia, Estonia, Belgium, Rome, Berlin, Washington and many other places. These were all when I was ‘working’ and getting paid doing one of my very enjoyable part-time jobs as an assistant for a disabled friend.
I was able to devote time to learning about myself much more, understanding and appreciating my uniqueness and mastering more of my life as a whole. I now exercise regularly, although I’m in my forty’s I feel stronger and fitter than when I was 20 and I think I look better too! I eat really well also and have a great diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, healthy oils and proteins.
I’m learning guitar again, still not very good but I do enjoy it. Also studying some European languages and developing my Salsa dancing skills... all great fun and nourishing in so many ways.
I started dating again and got to know several lovely ladies as well as made some fabulous new friends too because I got out more.
Built a motor home to go travelling in around Europe whenever I like, something I’d wanted to do for over 10 years.
Travelled to America for my daughter’s 21st birthday – that was awesome (as they say in the States).
Took holidays with my children in beautiful parts of Italy and England.
Had camp fires, watched moon rises and amazing sunsets.
Spent one winter in an amazing cottage in a magical part of rural France brushing up on my language skills and trying out French life… for free! And had friends and family over too!
I've continued to develop and deepen my relationships with friends and family which has been wonderful.
Had time to develop myself creatively and write more which I love, a talent I was completely unaware of several years ago.
Had time to research and pursue another main interest of mine – sustainable living and eco building and I’m now close to fulfilling that dream in a fabulous place in Europe… more on this later... actually, you can now read about that here!
So basically I feel I’ve been given a whole new lease of life and I’m taking it! Everyday I feel so blessed. To think I almost lost it completely in my darkest hours and all this LIFE I would have missed out on completely if I hadn’t turned it around, it truly would have been tragic.
Today I’m so excited about every new day and what can be unfolded in life and as for the future… well words can not describe how I feel about the rest of my life other than…
BRING IT ON!!! I’m just getting started on this incredible journey of life and what a ride it is!
Come and join me, whatever’s going on for you, there is light at the end of the tunnel and plenty of space for us all and it’s actually very nice over here. I Hope to see you smiling with me here very soon!
Wishing you peace, hope and happiness always :)
To think that I could have blown it and missed out on all this living and Life!!!!
What a waste that would have been!
