It has been three weeks since my last post and I am sitting here wondering what to write about…. The reason for this is that I feel a bit overwhelmed by the last three weeks, it has been a tad life changing to say the least.
Week 1 entailed me getting married, an epic affair that was suppose to be a light-hearted celebration and ended up being the most romantic day of my life.
Week 2 consisted of me leaving the day after getting married and going on a solo honeymoon with 7 complete strangers. It also involved me sleeping under the stars surrounded by the big 5.
Week 3 consisted of me and my now new family of 7 rowing down the Pongola river, sleeping under the stars and visiting Mozambique to swim with magnificent dolphins.
So I guess you can see my problem! Where do I start and what do I tell you about? I have been blessed with so many incredible life lessons in this time and have returned home to my two boys a completely new and energised person. At the core of my being I am still the same, but deep in my heart I have done a lot of healing, dealt with trust and power issues and discovered new talents and gifts along the way. I have made some incredible friends, that I can now call family and I have learnt how to love and trust new people in a short space of time. I have realised how incredibly important our connection to nature is and how hard people out there are working to try and save it from all of us out there. I have learnt how to respect and acknowledge each and every creature that calls this planet home, how to try and not invade and mess up their space. I have learnt how to heal in nature and how to connect with my higher self through my connection with nature.
So yes, I don’t know where to begin, maybe at the beginning, but who knows. The month of May has been my bucket list month, it has been amazing and I am living each day in a state of gratitude and wonder. I did not realise that my life could change so dramatically in a year, that becoming a spiritual being and putting my trust out there could lead to this. That I could live each moment in awe of how many blessings I receive each day. I keep on wondering about being lucky, but then I realise that we are all that lucky, we just need to start seeing it, because what is important to me is maybe not important to you and vice versa, but one thing I know is that we all need to be still so we can hear the messages. We all need to listen and say thank you, thank you for looking out for me and for caring so much about me that you are willing to bless me so immensely.
So I guess this post will basically be about me saying thank you for my blessings, thank you for letting me get my joy back this month, thank you for letting me realise how important my time is, how important my life is and how important my family and friends are. Thanks for fun, thanks for laughter, thanks for tears and fears, thanks for amazing epiphanies, thanks for always holding my hand and having my back.
So next week, I will start off by telling you some of the awesome lessons I learnt whilst out there in the Wilderness. About how I learnt how to heal in nature and how I learnt to let the wild woman free……
