A little time for reflection
All but 2 of the references are in, the van is booked, the army of helpers are assembled (so grateful for friends that are willing to help) and the work is waiting. It’s now less than a week until I move from the Sussex coast up to Cambridgeshire and i’m starting to get excited.
I’ve moved house so many times in the last few years that i’m getting a bit of a pro at it but that doesn’t mean it’s enjoyable! The only thing that will keep me going is the thought of the end result, which is the same with any goal, sometimes it’s painful but if you know you’re ‘why’ the ‘how’ becomes easy.
The last time I moved to an area that I didn’t know was when I moved to Manchester in 2002. That was such a great adventure. I didn’t know a single person there but found the people so welcoming, even though I am a ‘Southerner’. Although it wasn’t without copious amounts of ‘ribbing’ for my strange accent. It was while I was in Manchester that I started to find out about juicing and detoxing. I can remember watching a TV program on detoxing featuring Spa Samui in Thailand and thinking, "I wonder if that would help clear my skin?" I went, and it did! Seeing that program changed my life (who says TV can’t have a positive effect ) because on that trip I found raw foods.
You’ll have to excuse my reminiscing, I get very reflective at times of change. I like to take stock of what has brought me to any certain point in my life. I marvel and give thanks to all those things that have enabled me to be at this point, right here and now.
