Starry moment and a bit of relief….

Harold’s Planet by Swerling and Lazar

Financial strain, we’ve all had it in varying degrees and for elastic lengths of time. It’s been a long bumpy road for me, which I hope I have learnt from and developed some ingenuity with along the way.

During the last few years I have hung on to what felt natural to me and it’s only right to say at this point that I couldn’t have got this far without the love and support that has come my way. You know who you are xx

I hung on to being self employed and my spiritual work as it is me. The things I have done to keep going during this period have been creative, to say the least, but nothing really ‘held’. A lovely friend recommended me to a company where I could work at what flows naturally through me and stay self employed (I love you M).

In the last forty eight hours I have had a few unexpected emails from Head Office, full of support and praise, that have left me very touched and humbled. Then this morning I checked my bank account (over the internet) and there it was, my first invoice paid, a few days earlier than expected.

I’m having a moment, so I’m pouring it out on here.

Life will continue be interesting, have bumps, good surprises and magic moments and I know in my grateful heart that everything is exactly as it is meant to be.

    Holding on … letting go … joys … sorrows … laughs … tears – and through it all, there is a perfect balance in life. This is an absolutely beautiful message Jane filled with lessons for us all. Thank you for opening your heart to write it, and for helping me to remember myself.

    Oh Jane, it’s hard to find words to say how happy I am for you. You have struggled and anguished through such a difficult time. Hopefully, this is the turning point that will set you on a brighter path.

    You are in my heart, dear friend.
    Blessings – Maxi

    Oh, Jane, this makes me smile…. Regardless the way, we are never in a place we weren’t meant to be – realizing anew that which has awaited us to find.

    And just when the cocoon was beginning to tire………

    Love you,

    I had just posted this on Facebook:

    “There are only two ways to live your life.
    One is as though nothing is a miracle.
    The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
