When we first moved into our home nearly 20 years ago, the two goals that I had for this place were to feel as if you were entering into a personal Eden when you walked through the gate and to be able to see and hear the songbirds in the trees close to the windows. The Eden one has been well and truly achieved for some time, but the songbirds have taken much longer – they’re all around the garden, and occasionally we will see one in a tree close to the house.
As of this morning I’ve nailed both of those goals. Big Time. I sat down at the computer to write this post and heard birdsong – I looked up and in the tree outside the window (I’m in a second storey room) was a Tui singing (listen to one here) and looking straight at me. As he sang two of his friends came and joined him. I’m sitting here literally crying as I write this. I’ve done it, I’ve reached my goal and what’s more I’ve blasted right through it. Oh. My. God. What is even more incredible, and slightly uncanny was that this morning I was planning on writing a post about reprogramming my life. It was as if the Universe was telling me. You’re right Rob – you’ve achieved the stuff you wanted to in the first half, but now it’s time to go for it with the next part. I’ve got so many ideas about what I want to do with this blog, and other social media accounts that I can’t wait.
I’m off for a celebratory cup of coffee and to plan my next post. See you tomorrow.
May this be of use to you
