Change your life and you change….

What has been interesting lately is the discovery that when you make sweeping changes in your life you change. It sounds so simple as I type the words, but it has a profound impact.

Routine things happen and you find yourself responding differenty. No labels, not good or bad, just different. Your approach changes too, as if you have a fresh pair of ‘life glasses’.

So while I get the hang of this new me I am falling back to basics like cleaning whilst I get the hang of it all…now where’s that cloth?

    Yep Jane, there is that issue of being able to find things when you make those changes, right?

      Now you would laugh mj if you had been here this morning. My landing stage for the next five months is a top floor in a townhouse. Aahh you would think only three rooms she can’t lose anything up there….Oh can’t she? I went on a wonderful voyage of discovery this morning and located my crystals and fabric rose lights…now who’s a happy girl? x Have you found your special stuff yet? How’s the job hunting going?

    Wonderful to know other people get changed by life, as well! The act of cleaning helps me to clean out the old left-overs from my previous perspective on life and make fresh places to hold the new outlook!

    Did you get my card? I wondered if I had the right email for you? xx

      Hi Lynda – I did thank you very much, it was lovely and perfectly timed. I did send a reply through the card program, but I am guessing you didn’t get that. I haven’t got a current email for you so I have sent you a message on fb…much love to you xxx

    I do that all the time, Jane: when I have learned something new, turned a different corner or changed in some way this manifests in the physical and I have a desire to clean and get rid of ‘things’ that hold old energy. :-). Happy dusting 🙂

    Jane, I think you make a good point here. Regardless the reasons, change is something that requires us to change too. A year or so ago, a good friend of mine had ‘reunited’ with an ex-wife. I found it odd because I had been forced to listen to all the reasons it didn’t work the first time. But then, he talked about how she came over to help with a party for their daughters, and in the kitchen, he realized that there was no awkwardness – the movements were a dance – a dance of accommodation – moving in and around each other is a learned trait. But I am sure you know, it’s NEVER too late to learn a new dance!! Chachacha! ~ Love, Bobbie

      It is never too late to learn a new dance nor adapt to the changes in an old one…right now I am ready for a new one. Have a great weekend Bobbie xx
