Well hello there! Remember me? I apologise for the lack of posts for the last fortnight but until 145pm today I have been on my honeymoon and we decided that fortune cookie could take a well earned sabbatical.
So here I am back; hopefully refreshed and maybe even a little more insightful?
Funnily enough prior to bursting my fortune cookie packet I said to myself “over the next day or two you have to re-visit your vision board and start making plans”…
Today’s motto is, I think, pertinent as everything seems to have been on hold for a while in order to prepare for and get married and for the honeymoon, so now I am in an “open to opportunities” mode.
However, I think I need to be very clear in my mind what I would like, and if I do this, then I am certain that the opportunities will follow.
I learnt alot on honeymoon and took something of a connectivity/cyber holiday.
I came to the realisation that if I turned off my phone ringer I actually didn’t look at emails/texts as soon as they came in and then whilst I was checking the incoming emails I then didn’t then check social media; all things that take me away from experiencing the present fully.
I also noticed that I use my phone for telling the time so if I checked the time and saw that an email had come in, I then repeated the process of checking social media/instant messenger etc.
I know that in the working week I need to be connected but I realised how reliant I had become on it and it also made me realise that when I am alone my phone is often my sole companion and link to normality, the real world and my loved ones.
I would say I was far more relaxed than usual so I have definitely learnt a lesson here.
I have always seen today’s motto, (which we have had many times), as a reference to seizing opportunities in a “diary-filling” way. Whilst having a full diary is very important to me, I have come to the conclusion it is now of vital importance what I fill my diary with. Rest time and recharging time and refuelling the spirit time is of upmost importance. I don’t want to feel like it is a constant fight against the clock. That is not going to work for me any more.
So I am listening for the knock of opportunity and am going to try to discern where my path is now leading me…
