The weather is absolutely gorgeous isn’t it, I have been spending a lot of time in my lovely garden, it is so nice to see all my plants in full bloom. I had to have a rethink over the position of the bird table in the garden over the weekend due to the impending kitten orientation to the garden later this week. Lenny has been consistent with his demonstration of hunting tendencies (Eddie not so much). He has only been here three weeks and his toy mouse is in tatters already.
I feel like I haven’t written a full blog post for ages, I do miss it. I hope you have found the affirmations useful, they have certainly kept me on my toes and my energy levels high. I have had a lot to think about and have had some ideas for how to present my new blog to you all, I know you have not seen any results yet but that is how I work I do an awful lot of thinking first and then it all comes together some weeks later.
Last week I had an interview at a hospice in the Greater Manchester area in order to become a volunteer. Once all the legalities and mandatory training are completed I will start a three month trial providing Reiki and Massage to those who attend the day hospice. I no longer work in clinical practice and I do miss patient contact and caring for patients, so this is a nice and very different way of still maintaining that contact. During the interview I was asked to tell the interviewers about myself , to which I did. As I heard myself talk I realised I was talking about someone who I did not recognise, of course I was talking about myself and all my little projects but for the first time I realised how much I have changed over the past few years. I really felt proud of myself, I had always wanted to see a change in myself not because I was doing anything bad but just because I did not feel as happy as I should have. I thought it was strange that I had not really noticed the changes and to be honest I did not think much had happened. It is as if the changes have happened in the blink of an eye, obviously they haven’t the changes have been small and over a period of time that seem accumulated into something big. In some ways I know I no longer fit into my old life, the words “square peg, round hole” spring to mind and I know that further bigger changes need to be made, but instead of being anxious I am actually excited and full of anticipation.
Lots of love and thank you for reading xxx
