Who doesn’t love a couple of days off work? Time to relax, and for me and the bestie to do a bit of theme park adventuring. Wandering off to Alton Towers and Thorpe Park for the weekend put a huge smile on both our faces.
You’ll find us here a lot, it’s kind of a happy place. At least for me it is. I’ve always found that no matter what’s been going on in life, once I get to a theme park, literally as I walk through the entrance, I feel as if I’ve entered into a little bubble of protection and nothing can bother me.
I find a well built and themed roller coaster to be a thing of beauty. That may strike a lot of people as an odd statement, but really look at one next time. Take some time to think about how it was designed so that once the train has left the lift hill, it will travel the entire length of the track under it’s own momentum. Look for all the small little details that are put into the theming, spot the little bits that are overlooked by many, but that people like me notice, love and appreciate. These things don’t just happen by accident, there is a lot of love and attention that goes into a coaster.
Anyway….. that’s enough about coasters for now…. Theme parks give me time to think, time to reflect on the path I want to take. Since making the decision to train to teach yoga, I’ve had an urge to change many things about my life. I want to break away from the 9-5, stop doing jobs that make me extremely unhappy or even on occasions verging on depressed and create that life that I don’t want to run away from.
That is the path and this is the beginning of the journey.
I designed this for myself originally a couple of years ago. I had forgotten how to love myself after a fairly traumatic break up and a few years of being single. I had been reading book after book about the law of attraction and realised that I needed to change my feelings.
It wasn’t about attracting love from elsewhere, this was all about me being comfortable being me. A lot of the law of attraction text mentions putting things you want to manifest in plain sight, a constant almost subliminal reminder of what you want to attract to yourself.
I’m not going to tell you that I hung this up and suddenly felt completely different and in all honesty I still have work to do when it comes to this. What does happen though, when I look at it or catch it out of the corner of my eye, is I feel a small smile and a little warm glow and I remember that I am enough.
My Etsy Shop was born, it’s been slow going what with having a full time job and training to be a yoga teacher, but I’m enjoying setting it all up and more importantly making things to fill the little shop with. Keep an eye out as I have many ideas brewing and will be sharing them just as soon as I can.
Hope you have all had an amazing Easter break and eaten as much chocolate as your hearts desired!
