Seeing as a good few members of the male population are flying up to Jhb for the rugby…yes I know what you’re thinking….”WHY?”…but still…us girls are being left to our own devices. Trace and I are heading off to Mamma Mia tonight - can’t wait!!! … and tomorrow we’ll do the country thing at the farmer’s market with Cody and kids in tow! I love buying flowers from their flower stall, but my garden is just looking so colourful at the moment….so I managed to fill a good few vases this week. With the jasmine being out at this time of year, my house has smelt HEAVENLY these last few weeks….and that has been on my gratitude list..wow…the simple things in life!
My blog will be short today, but what I wanted to share was the topic of change. This week has had some significant changes for me, which can sometimes be quite daunting. When Andrea left she gave me the most beautiful pewter Angel on a ribbon, on which the following was engraved: “There are no endings; only new beginnings…”. It’s very seldom that I enter into any form of change without thinking it through, analysing, etc. etc. unless it presents itself unannounced, and it’s then that you can feel unnerved, but I have really tried to take heed of the above statement, to see if it would change the way I react to new situations and change, and it certainly has. Let’s face it, not all change make us happy, but all changes are a NEW BEGINNINGS, which means that at the onset, we have the option to choose our attitude towards it. That can make all the difference as to how it plays out, and whether it becomes useful and positive, or negative and destructive. Every change is a new opportunity to rise to the occasion, and a journey in itself, so try and remember the above, and you’ll be surprised at how much better you feel.
