It’s been ages since I wrote a post and yes. I’m feeling a bit bad about that. Emails are coming in and people are asking ‘what’s up?’ As usual, I have no real, concrete answer. Wondering how long I can use the excuse that life is what’s happening…and I’m a procrastinator. What can I say?
Some things have me thinking and excited at the moment though and of course I need to share. Do I have enough stuff to call it a “Things I’m Excited About” post? I don’t know….some are merely observations.
Number one thing I’m stoked about? A weekend getaway to Rock Water Secret Cove Resort this weekend! I didn’t even know this little gem existed- but I’m so glad to have found it. I don’t care if it rains- I’m still walking on the beach in my rubber boots and sitting on the veranda of our own little cabin with a glass of wine in hand. Nothing can take the pleasure of a weekend away in a NEW place at a time when I need it…fabulous company, a new experience and memories to last. Sounds divine. (and we’ll be discovering Sechelt too!) This is an early birthday present for me- and this year, 2013, is a year I’ve decided to acknowledge my age and my birthday and hopefully embrace the moment.
I made a decision a while back to make 2013 The Year of Chere. Through positive thinking, affirmations and keeping myself surrounded with those I love, I’m looking forward to great things happening. I still have moments of sadness, twinges…but I think we all do, in some way- I look back on where I’ve come from, what’s shaped me to be who I am, and what I hope to have happen down the road. Anything is possible isn’t it? Be what you want, see what you need and enjoy. “God” knows I’m trying to accept I deserve good things to happen to me…and with the love I have in my life- I can feel the change.
A very good friend told me yesterday to get back into “seeing” and believing what I want. To picture your life, as you want it, before you go to bed…hold the images tight, use all your senses and feel the images…Affirmations. Positive Energy. Whatever you want to call it. I used to do this on a regular basis and for whatever reasons, I stopped. No more stopping dammit- I’m STARTING AGAIN.
Next up? I’m going home. Home is on Vancouver Island….I’ve blogged about Gold River before. For those readers who were fortunate to grow up in a small town, you know it never really gets out of your system. No matter how far you run, or how fast….where you live….you never can replace “home”. I’m looking forward to sharing the experience with someone new.
More to come…sooner, rather than later, promise….
