A sense of calm has come over me lately and I’m relishing it. Don’t get me wrong, daily life is still crazy busy with the bustle of everything that needs to be achieved and ticked off. But without wishing to sound like a free spirit who runs around with daisies in her hair, I feel peaceful.
As last year due to a close and this one began, I made a decision that I would not run from here to there like a headless chicken letting the blog takeover, which in turn, meant I was playing constant catch up with the rest of life. The seed was planted here and grew a little more here but even when I wrote these posts, I wasn’t quite sure where the feeling was coming from or what it meant.
Maybe its an age thing. Turning 40 was exciting, unknown and thrilling and with it came this blog dream I’ve been living ever since. Are your mid 40′s more of a challenge in the excitement stakes? Mid point is generally not considered to be very exciting in most walks of life. But so far I’m liking how it’s evolving – it’s crept in with a healthy dose of clarity.
What I do is incredibly important to me for reasons I don’t need to list here. The case for doing what you love has already been put down on paper a million times and expressed far more eloquently than I ever could. And I’ll continue to do it as long as it feels good and in whatever form it may take.
But I’m finding I enjoy it even more when it sits in the middle of a healthy mix of everything else. A few recent events and observations make me realise just how important that “everything else” is.
In the middle is where you can find me right now. If it were to be expressed in terms of style it would be laid back, minimalist and with a relaxed vibe…which feels like a pretty good place to be!
Happy Weekend xxx
