I came across a great blog post the other day by ‘The Flying Witch’, Gabriella Guglielminotti Trivel, entitled Time for Wholeness. Ms Tivel’s blog carries the subheading ‘Flying with the feminine’ and in this particular article she writes about her experiences of going through perimenopause and needing to observe and honour the changes going on within her body.
This made me think about my own situation. I, too, am at this stage in my life, while also going through a lot of other changes – home, location, work, animals, friends, etc. It’s been an exciting, stressful, wonderful, and exhausting 12 months, and so I felt it was time to take a look at where I am, currently, and assess how I’m doing with all that’s been going on.
The answer is that I’m feeling rather drained, and a little bit lacking in ‘mojo’.
I’ve therefore decided to take a step back from writing this blog for a while. While I love writing and sharing with you – and would love to engage more with you all – it’s time to take a short break. Instead I’ll be using the time to focus on resting, recharging and reassessing where I want to go next. I also have some other writing that I want to make time for, such as the mindfulness course that I’ve had sitting on the back burner for a while. It’ll be good to get this done rather than having it sitting, staring accusingly at me from my To Do list!
Also, I have a VIP guest coming to visit next month – my Mum is coming over from Ireland to see our new home for the first time. I’m so excited and can hardly wait to share this magical space with her. It’ll be her first time meeting Dax and Rika too!
So, I wish you all a wonderful September with whatever you have planned, and see you again in October.
