Day 220

I’m in Newcastle for my friends book launch. Katie and I have been a part of the same blogging group for the last four years and to see Katie’s book being published is such an huge achievement. I am so proud of her, as she has worked so hard to get to this moment. It also inspires me even more on my writing journey. I am so excited to be celebrating tonight with some of my soul sisters. Katie and I only met last year in person for the first time. We were both pregnant and on a transformational journey of our own. Katie is a single Mum to two beautiful boys and what she has achieved in her life so far is nothing short of amazing. She gave birth to her second son a few months before Hamish was born. Katie inspires me so much with her strength and vulnerability. Katie has suffered through anxiety and has written her story through it all. By showing up and being vulnerable on her blog has helped many over the years including myself.

I really love the vibe here in Newcastle. I went to Merewether beach for a walk and meditation and it was very calming. The waves were so big and ferocious and the beach was empty with only a few people walking by. I meditated with my eyes open. Watching the waves roll in towards me. I asked mother nature what is the right path for me? Where should I go next? The answer I got was simple. There is no right or wrong path to go down. What ever twist and turn I move towards is the ‘right’ one. I need to trust that I will be led in the ‘right’ direction. I have been putting pressure on myself to make certain decisions. Go down a certain path and have my life figured out. I am not used to working solely in my business. I am not used being out of the 9-5 grind and I am not planning on going back there. I am getting more comfortable in this ‘in-between’ space where I currently am.

Hamish I love you so much. I can feel your presence today. When I feel close to nature is when I feel close to you.
