However...I had some unexpected visitors as well. The gremlins (fear and her sisters...insecurity and self doubt) came visiting and still haven't left! I guess when I am busy all the time, I have no time or energy to entertain these guests. But once I had plenty of time to relax, think and (....freak out!!! )...they came full force. They were mostly of the "who does she think she is" and "how on earth am I going to do all this" variety. So I got out my journal and started writing-really identifying my feelings/thoughts (I will share some of my thoughts in another post later on this week)...I feel a lot better now but...I guess this is all part of the journey. What I am realising is that when I acknowledge my fears and accept them for what they have to teach me, they lose their potency and I become stronger and more committed.
I hope all of you had a great weekend-thanks for the many words of kindness (via your posts and emails) . I will be stopping by your blogs soon.
