I woke up this morning and realised that I was happy.  Not about anything in particular, or in an elated, giddy kind of way.  Just a gentle feeling of happiness coming from deep within.  

I am coming to a new sense of understanding about my place in the world, about my dreams and my hopes.  I'm starting to see my life in a much bigger way, rather than just the immediate future.  I'm am finding my own path on so many fronts.

I have such a sense of completion around me.  Somehow I just know that this time of intense challenges and learning is coming to an end.  There are signs too.  Small things starting to shift.  New opportunities emerging.  And a quieter, more grounded me, able to listen and to see the opportunities before me, and to embrace them.

I think this week is going to be a pivotal week in all of this.  There's a few things happening, the outcomes of which could potentially really shape the next couple of years.  In my heart I just have this sense of the future moving forward to greet me.


  1. I am so happy that you woke up happy. it is so nice to just know that you are happy and to just sit with that for a while.

  2. Mumsy's painting turned out beautifully.

  3. These words are really resonating with me right now. I'm glad you are enjoying the adventure!

  4. I feel much the same way, except my pivotal time isn't here yet...
    That feeling of happiness within, isn't it magical and special? :)

  5. i wish you all of the best! i know things fall into place and happen for all of the right reasons!

    i am loving all of the beautiful texture in this painting! and the colors are incredible!

    best wishes!

  6. I love how you also call your mum "mumsy", im sure she loved this piece. Everything works out for the best and it sounds like you are in a lovely place, albeit a little scary at times, but in the right place all the same. xx
