Life Update

Since I last blogged, my life has changed significantly. My marriage broke down, I had a mental health crisis, I had to take absolute control of my own life and health.

I discovered yoga and meditation, I found peace. I found confidence in driving as well as many other things. I choose to be more honest with myself.

I accepted I never really knew how to love myself and the way I would talk to myself in my mind and the way I treated myself was deplorable.

Significant change has its pros and cons but the strength and liberation, not to mention the grounding I get from being the one that takes care of me is tremendous.

I stand on a precipice of choices trying to decide what my life will be about going forward. Once my husband was no longer the main relationship in my life I explored friendships and met new people. I find myself finding peace and stillness and enjoying the benefits they bring.

I drive every day. I do so with a little anxiety but with the objectivity that I am no different to the thousands of drivers out there.

I accept my feelings, I don’t berate myself for having them. I observe them and acknowledge them and I let them go.

Religion is for those who don’t want to go to hell, spirituality is for those who have already been there. I open my heart to accepting that there is a higher power.

Mostly I feel gratitude for being here, in this moment, at this time and exploring everything open to me.

From the 18th July 2019 I will be blogging regularly whilst I undergo a 3 week intensive yoga teacher training course. An intense start to the next phase of my journey.

    And love, love, love the quote, “Religion is for those who don’t want to go to hell, spirituality is for those who have already been there.”

    1. I think no challenge means no change and change is inevitable. As frightened as I was, holding on was not good for either of us. We are still the best of friends.
