About the (mind, body, spirit) journey

This is the home and heart of this blog. It’s where I write about journeys of all kinds. My writing has been erratic of late, so much disruption in my life and the world that I’ve thought about things too much while not writing enough.

That’s going to change as I ease my way into a new phase of my life, document the transition and explore how I got to where I am now.

I’ll be exploring how forgetting that the future is always a mystery is a recipe for getting caught out and lost in your own life and how it’s possible to reconnect with your past while creating a roadmap for a new life.

2005 was the year my life broke. 2017 was the year I was pushed out of my old life. In 2018 and 19 I have concentrated on walking my way into my new life.

My journey isn’t a misery memoir, although there was pain and heartbreak along the way, but there have also been laughs. Lots of laughs. And an abundance of learning.

That learning is important because many people will have or know someone who is going through similar unplanned disruptions to their lives. As I’ve navigated these changes I’ve discussed the idea of writing a book to share what I’ve learnt, especially about controlling what you can and letting go of what you can’t with the professionals I’ve met along the way. They’ve all said it would be a good and valuable exercise so I will be doing that during the rest of 2019 as well.

I’m hoping more people join me in this journey and grow in the process.
