A few years ago I was aware that I needed to makes some changes in my life. Both kids are married with wonderful partners and have careers that keep them busy and we do not spend as much time together. I had been the doing the same thing for many years, and constantly updating my education. I raised my family and worked in the same large bungalow for 35 years along with many renovations. I decided to finally renovate the kitchen the way I really wanted it. The crisis came for me when I lost a soul sister and I was feeling stagnant in what I was doing and where I was living. Linda was one of those souls you do not see or communicate for weeks and when you do you practically finish each others’ sentences like it was yesterday.
For a few years my husband and I would go for a drive looking at properties all over. Nothing ever fit what I felt would be appropriate. I did not share the emotional issue of feeling disconnected, lost and bored. The bored part is a lifelong ongoing complaint. I love to be in classes and learning. That is why I read a book in a day. It was my problem and I had to find an answer that would satisfy me.
John found a picture of a lovely raised bungalow on water. We had to wait to look at it, as it was rented and the occupants were not obliging as they really did not want to have to move. When we finally visited the property and I walked into the house I instantly saw my glass top kitchen table sitting in the middle of the kitchen. I knew this was where we belonged. I did not share what I was doing with anyone until I had all the plans together. It took me a year to reorganize and settle in. With spirits supporting me, I started working on the future of what I would now be doing. I love living next to water as it is so soothing peaceful and most of the time quiet. I enjoy my swimming pool and spend as much time as I can in it. When inside, I am mostly in the upper sunroom overlook the bay or in my office looking out at the bay. I’m sure you get the idea. I LOVE WATER – in it or looking at it. I feel at home.
My crisis is over and I am content. Many changes still to come. I do not have everything in my life in order as of yet, still working on new ideas. Change is inevitable. It’s your road, and yours alone, others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you. in love and light
