Honouring Myself & Let Me Know What You Want
A short one from me this week as I head off...
An exploration in Embodying your True Self for people who care too much. If you're running on empty, feel numb or are functioning on autopilot with no zest for life and want to get some juice back, you're in the right place. :-)
This week I am about to head off for a week’s holiday on my own.
On my own because my husband is still not well enough to travel with the prolapsed disc, which is sad. We love to spend time together walking and relaxing. Always feeling refreshed and as if we have sorted out a load of decisions that we hadn’t had time to think about at home.
But I need the break and I know I will benefit from having no-one to think of except myself. It’s a very rare luxury having been a parent for 36 years and still having sons at home, albeit adult sons.
I won’t have much access (if any) to internet and there is lots to do in preparation. I could squeeze in another post but I have decided not to.
I am choosing…. I am listening. My body is tired though my mind keeps downloading words to share. Capturing words and ideas as I go…
While away, I will sleep as long as I want to, day or night. I’ll eat when I want to and prepare only food for myself. I’ll walk and breathe in sea air. I’ll listen to music, sing and dance. I’ll write of course ;-) and see what other ideas land or not. I may even do yoga on the beach and have a dip in the sea if I’m feeling brave. Brrr…..
What are you longing for?
THINGS IN THE PIPELINE
Next week’s post - Being overcaring isn’t kind and it isn’t loving.
Later I’ll be talking more about Grief and Emotions.
The big trauma I experienced before I was two that caused my chronic health issues as an adult.
I recently outlined a book about self-care. What it is and what it isn’t. Watch this space…
I am pulling out the first draft of my book about grief ready to edit, update (because it’s been two years since I wrote it) and publish (probably on here).
I am going to record voiceovers to my posts for people who prefer to listen.
I’ll be speaking more about Honouring. What I mean by that. And also what I mean by True Self.
I am toying with the idea of paid subscriptions. I want to make a long term, sustainable career for myself as a writer. I love it so much! I am so excited that I have finally found MY THING that I can hardly contain myself when I am talking to people about it. You literally can’t shut me up!
One idea is to create Guided Meditations which I have a gift for and absolutely love doing. Let me know if this would be of interest to You!?

I’ll get back to you when I’m back.
I have to take my time making congruent decisions, that give me energy. I have sabotaged myself in the past, jumping in too soon, finding it’s the wrong direction, and running out of steam. Lesson learned (for now ;-) ). Tick!
The other two ideas are currently Top Secret. In fact, one of those I am so excited about, it will definitely go ahead as soon as I can get it all together. It’s for me. It’s indulgent. It’s expressive. It’s entertaining and deeply vulnerable. It will help others who have experienced grief. It might fail. It might succeed. I have no idea. And I don’t care. :-) He he… But I KNOW I have to do it. :-) So it makes me very happy. :-) Can you tell!? :-) :-) ;-)
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
How can I help you?
If I created something that would be the thing that helped you the most, what would it be?
What do you want to know?
What’s puzzling you about what I write?
What’s your burning question or thought?
