Well hi there from Bali!
I am not really sure what I am doing here, I don’t have a ‘theme’ for my blog, I have no idea where I want to take it and I am at a loss of what I want to share… I just know I have a story, well lots of stories, musings, and ideas, and they are taking up far too much space in my head. Time to get them out.
Why am I in Bali? This is my 6th week on a life transformational journey that I am taking at 32. If you had told me last year that I would have quit my job of 7 1/2 years, enrolled in a yoga teacher training course and spent two months finding myself in Bali I would have not believed you for a second.
This time last year I found myself in one of the more challenging times of my life. I had just come out of a couple of really traumatic months within my family. I had been failing miserably at falling pregnant since I had married 18 months before and had just booked in my first (to be unsuccessful) IVF cycle. I was in a pretty hectic cycle of anxiety and panic attacks. It was a shitty start to the year, to say the least. I was unhappy.
Now here I sit watching the sunset over Echo Beach, my mind calm, my body healthy and my soul shining through. I can’t have believe that my world could change so much over one year.
Ce La Vie; thats life. The world is constantly changing and no situation is ever the same as before. This is the truth for bad times, so have faith that through the darkness will come light. The pain and hurt in any moment will pass with time, and healing will come.
No moment will ever be repeated. I will never see this beautiful sunset with magical shades of blue, orange and pink ever again. I am learning to live in the moment, live without fear, live ruled by love, and live knowing that every experience has brought me to this place, right here, right now. Its a very special place and I am extremely lucky.
So, there you go looks like my first post is a heavy one… I also really like food, coffee, beaches, sunset, and cheeky beers while I watch those sunsets.
