Thanks Jen

It’s been a while since I last put anything on here.

Partly because I want to write only when my writing is perfect. (yet I don’t write often)

Partly because this space is meant to be a positive space that provides an “oxygen like” effect for the readers journey. (and some days I’m a little dry on positive)

Partly because I always think I have tomorrow or next week.

But today, I received an email from a lady I follow on Instagram, I signed up for her weekly newsletter a while back…  she wrote about how she was looking for a hobby and after a few options were considered, she was drawn to rowing. She loves it and her email beamed with positivity. I could hear it in her tone.

I read it, sat at my computer and had tears in my eyes. I was thrilled for her, yet sad for me.

Now, don’t get me wrong… I’m not looking at doing any rowing or sport of the sort – lets keep it real here, I’m on oxygen full-time and walking on the treadmill makes me tired.

Its not about a hobby. Its about doing something that makes me happy. As happy as Jen.

What the email asked were some really good questions that drew out the truth from me.

These are her questions –

What are you waiting to do? 

Do you know if you like to do things alone or with other people? 

Do you stop at the first obstacle? 

Is it time to try something intentionally new? FOR YOU?

The questions had me teary and confronted with reality.

There are things I want to do and don’t. I allow obstacles to stop me, I don’t take the time alone that I crave and want so badly.

Then Jens email proceeded with this –

I challenge you to do the thing. One little thing. Google it. Email someone. And take a little step.

You’re going to be dead soon and life will just go on without you, so, may as well make the most of your opportunity. NOW.

Until next we meet, keep being brave, keep showing up and keep sharing beautiful you.

That was the cherry on top with the emotions department.

Lets do things NOW!

Even Jen’s Quote of the weeks was on point…

“When a problem is disturbing you, don’t ask, “What should I do about it?” Ask, “What part of me is being disturbed by this?”.
Michael Singer

So here I am, checking in with who ever is reading this.

I love to write, I have a message to get out there and I’m starting again NOW!

Sending you some strength, courage, some positive vibes and the urge to get into something that brings you joy. Something that when you do it, you cant help but to smile and recharge yourself.
