Who knew that it would be nearly two months before I would find myself free and focused enough to post again once I got my visa? 🤔
I started working full-time on the 1st of November, which fills my days without much time to think about other things. This is both good and bothersome to someone who has been free with time for 18 months. The routine and structure of a work schedule is part of the good – along with knowing that a regular income is coming in! 🤑 So, I cannot complain as I still have time for other aspects of life, just not so much for my own writing….
Still, life is falling into place and returning to a sense of ‘relief’. After the stress of the past 18 months or perhaps more, I had nearly forgotten what it was like to feel “free” in my mind, body and soul. It is starting to sink in that the past phase is finished. I enjoyed it while it lasted. Like everything in my life, I have no regrets. Experiences contribute to our way of thinking and our growth. However, it does not mean that I cannot be glad that phase is over now. 😜
Despite the absence of presence, there are still lingering effects. We must close up financial aspects and still ship our belongings. However, the good news is that we can see a means to achieve this. So, fretting shall be postponed for now.
At the moment, we are six days away from my first trip home for Christmas 🎄 in nine years!!!! I cannot wait! It’s going to be so great to see my family and to have a proper vacation with my hubby. He has not been able to process, digest and release since we left. So, it’ll be a much needed reprieve.
So, now that life is falling into a more balanced state, I shall be making more effort to get myself writing again. 🤞🏽👍🏽
Besides, it’s the time of year for reflections again and to take a look back at how the year went despite the twists and turns.😳🤗
More to come,
