It’s now been 6 nights and about 2 hours since I moved into my new home, and let me tell you – life feels so very different on the other side.
The last time I was able to unpack my bags without an agenda to move anywhere would have been Victoria, Canada. I don’t include the Silent Retreat as that was Ashram style living and frankly – who wants to consider living there long term?
I’ve landed safely with both feet, as my new home includes everything. I have a bathroom – hot & cold water, a kitchen – including gas cooker AND fridge, a bed, a garden AND a pool! Jackpot!
These might seem like very simple things to give appreciation for, but when you’ve been bed & house hopping for the past year, it changes one’s perspective A LOT!
For the last 5 mornings I’ve cooked breakfast at home. The satisfaction that this small little task offers is in-explainable. Having to pop out to cafes to eat first thing in the morning can feel relentless after a while. Don’t get me wrong – the food and coffee here are wonderful and I am so very grateful to have had the abundance to do this. But this chicken is ready for a rest and to focus my energy constructively elsewhere. Not on where I’m going to eat today. Big shift.
At the same time, a little rescue Bali Dog affectionately named Molly has shown up in my life. She’s a little doll of a puppy, if a puppy can be called that? She’s a special little being that has been brought back from the brink of near extinction and has won our hearts. So for now she is living with me. A house and a dog in one week, a partner on his way.
Yup life. It feels possible again. Today when asked how I’m doing, my reply – good. Full stop. No stories, no explorations or reflections. Just good. Great in fact.
With the world in upheaval the way it is, to feel good is GREAT!
My inner world is where it’s at. It is all there is. From my inner world I am creating my external. Amazing things are beginning to make their way to me at a rapid rate. I am merely preparing to receive them right now. I’m resting when I need to & enjoying this massive clearing rain Bali has been receiving for FOUR days straight now. FOUR DAYS OF RAIN!
So this little blog is just a little ditty of gratitude. No massive reflections, no deep diving. A reminder that simplicity and gratitude for such is where I’m at. I couldn’t be happier in this moment, well I can think of one – but that’s for between my ears only 😉
In love, gratitude & amazing health
