Today happens to be the beginning of my last week in my thirties. Sounds very dramatic doesn’t it? I have to say that the lead up to turning forty feels kind of strange. I guess when you reach milestone birthdays it’s always the moment for reflection and to take stock on where you’ve been, where you’re at now and where you’re going to. Looking at it like that, I feel blessed for all of the incredible experiences I’ve had to date and most of all for my little family, which is my absolute rock. I also feel so excited for the future, for the direction of this blog and all of the possibilities and opportunities that come my way because of it. With all of that, I guess I need to stop looking at those extra lines around my eyes as something negative and not compare myself to young gorgeous twenty year olds. Those lines make up so many stories and experiences that I hadn’t yet experienced when I was twenty.
I’m on my way to Sydney today for a week away by myself. I’m actually going there to attend a meditation retreat in the Blue Mountains over the weekend that Guillaume booked me in some time ago. I really have no idea what to expect and have to say that I’m curious to how I will be able to sit still for so long and meditate, actually I’m half terrified at the thought but at the same time I’m open to what it will bring to my life and wellbeing.
I’ll also get a couple of nights with my friends and family, which is always a treat but certainly not long enough, that time when I can spend quality moments with everyone will have to wait until October.
Before I go, I want to thank you for all of your enormous support for the opening of my online Great.ly store. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all of your kind words and encouragement. If you look to the right up the top of this page, you’ll see the big G. That will take you to the store so I do hope that you pop over from time to time to look at the constantly evolving range and of course I’d love it if something tickled your fancy.
I do have a post scheduled for Friday which I’m so excited to share with you, so see you then.
