Happy Chooseday

Are you an ideas person...?

I am and I think it's a big ask.

So, if you too are like me, take the weight off awhile, chillax, let go and allow life to happen through you.

Here's my story:

By now you might be aware I'm one of 7 children and yes, I was bright. I loved a puzzle, picked up games really quickly and this proved really useful. In the family, I found my pitch, at school, I got the grades and at work, I got the job done. It sounds ideal, which in some ways it was, but there was an awful lot of grief to contend with - too much to go into here. Needless to say, I turned to other activities to get me through. Smoking started at school, then drinking when I got to earn a little money, then boys. When I look back now it was all a bit of a mess really. Despite that, there were highlights - the bits I enjoyed. Again, way too many to go into here.

God knows what happened to me during that time up until my 20s, but there's one thing for sure - I was always in there somewhere. In fact, I remained 'in there' until my sister died, we (hubby and I) took a year out around Australia and menopause hit; imploding, exploding and yes, I lost myself completely.

Despite having lost it, I somehow carried on

Despite those deepest of dark time, I was still in there somewhere - and the rebuild began.

I guess that was my midlife crisis !

Oh my goodness, when I think back now, it was like being a teenager again - in my case, trying desperately to get to grips with life! This time though was different. I had learnt a lot. This time it was healthy eating and drinking - basically being aware that whilst my body was amazing at clearing the wheat from the chaff, it needed help and, as close to nature as possible.

When you think about it, we are each a bit like our own planet - treat ourselves well and we will flourish.

Despite that 'knowing', I couldn't help myself getting involved in stuff beyond my 'brief'. The worst part was dealing with authority - that did take a lot of time to untangle !

I mentioned 'brief'... and I feel excited at the mere thought of it. I love it, because my brief is me, yet I don't know what that is... However, I know how it feels...

It's that vaguest idea of me being me that sparkles with life, is happy, up for living - so free, full, yeah sparkly is the only word for it.

So yes, fellow ideas peeps, let go, loosen, you're truly at your best when untangled, free and sparkling!

'tis your time to shine - and thrive !
