Enjoy Every Day

Today did not go at all the way I expected it to.

It was a million times more interesting, fun and happy!

Once those things were taken care of, I decided to buy some snacks and bottles of water to give out to a few homeless people, in the hopes it might brighten their day a little. Then I went to check out the awesome graphics in St David’s Shopping Centre that my very talented sister, Liz, created.

 

 

 

When I got back, I heard that an old friend needed some photos taken at her concert this evening, and so instead of staring at my laptop all evening, I decided to go and take some pictures and videos. I was blown away by the music, she really had put a lot of energy into organising the concert, and was not only conducting the choir and orchestra, but was also playing the harp for several numbers as well! I was really impressed with her confidence and her talent, and was really glad that I went along! A school friend was also in the orchestra, and it was great to see her after so many years!

After the concert, I got some chips and drove down to a beach I spent a lot of time on as a teenager. I sat and ate in the car, then went outside, and stood in the full force of the sea breeze. It felt like I let everything go in that moment, and opened the door to a fresh start, a new beginning.

Today was filled with lots of little magical moments, funny moments, awe-inspiring moments, and beautiful moments. And I realised that every single day could be this way, if I just go with the flow, stay open to last-minute plans, take every opportunity to help others in any way I can, and simply enjoy myself.

In numerological terms, today’s date is 9.9.9. And with 9 being a number of completion, it feels as though it is the perfect day to say good-bye to old ways, old habits, old thinking and an old life. Tomorrow, is a brand new adventure. And I intend to enjoy every moment of it.

A New Chapter

quote

Apologies for the lack of blogging recently, there have been many topics I could have written about, but my mind has not been in the right place. It seemed fitting, with the completion signified by the Supermoon tomorrow to write this post on ending one chapter and beginning a new one.

For a while now, things have been a little bit up and down, and last weekend it was time to make some big decisions and to move things forward. So, although it has not been easy, and I don’t doubt that there will be more rough patches ahead, my partner and I have decided to go our separate ways. Now, I could have stayed somewhere local, but I know that if we are within proximity of each other, we will end up back in the same cycle, so I have made the decision to move further away, to…

Brighton!

Why? Well, one of my lovely fans, Chip, lives there and reckons I will love it. I’ve never been there before, and it seems like a great place. That’s pretty much all the reasons I have. It’s also four hours away from here, which means that it will be as clean a break as possible.

This shift has been in the air around us for some time now, but I have been resisting it. And in my resistance, I have been stuck in many ways, and things haven’t been flowing. I decided it was time to go with this flow, and stop fighting it. Hopefully it will take me on new and magical paths, I guess I will have to wait and see.

No matter what happens, Jon and I will always have a special connection to one another, and the last four years will still be the most magical ones of my existence. It is thanks to our relationship that I was able to pursue my dream of writing and publishing books, and I am so very thankful for the time we have spent together.

I will post more updates soon, when I begin my new adventure…
