Posts Tagged ‘new beginnings’

Words that nearly everyone can relate to..  If you have lived, I believe you will have at some point in your life, experienced your heart breaking…  Whether it be from a relationship with a significant other, with parents, with children or indeed with a special pet, or something else entirely, to live is to experience heart break.

The reason for this post, however, is not to explore heart break, but to write about a wonderful book I have read by fellow blogger Vivienne Tuffnell called “Strangers and Pilgrims”.

It begins by exploring the lives of different people and their individual paths as they journey through life, each experiencing their own special form of misery.  Each of them getting so desperate that they type in the words “My heart is breaking and I’m dying inside” into a search engine hoping beyond hope that by some miracle, they can find what they need to begin living again.

And oh my, that is where the journey truly begins..  The way Viv brings her characters to life and weaves her way through their lives is truly magical..  I literally could not put the second half of the book down, I continued to read until 3 in the morning, without any comprehension of time passing. And yes, I did have work on the next day – so warning – read it on the weekend!

Such a talented writer, with tremendous insight into human nature, she makes each of the characters believable and draws you into their lives with effortless ease.

I really loved it..  Thank you Viv for bringing it to life.

Well..   They’ve finally started – rehearsals!  Woo hoo!  I’m so glad that I didn’t begin learning my lines before they started.. Because, now I’m playing a different part.. My new character is sooo boring – yes, she’s on stage most of the play – but she is boring..  I’m hoping I’ve got it wrong – that the director will take me to one side and explain the character to me like he did the original one, and that she turns out to be quite cool – Hmmm..  Well, I gotta live with some hope!!

My week has gone from busy 2 nights a week to rehearsals Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays – Basketball for Tuesday (me) & Wednesday (Alex)..  How cool..  I loooove being busy..  And, at some stage (soon I hope) rehearsals will begin for the 10 minute play I’m in..

Ooohh.. I’m also working on a new creative project which is so much fun..  I can’t tell you how inspiring it is to be working with someone else on a creative project.  We both bring totally different skills to it (luckily, he is more disciplined than I am – so keeps me on track); we work in harmony; we expand on each other’s ideas until we are clear about where the story is heading; we work together to ensure agreement on our base principals; he didn’t balk at me when I wanted to incorporate a love story and my version of Utopia!  What more could I ask for!

What if…

We realised that we are all connected.

We woke up to a world where there was total acceptance.  Where we lived side by side in peace and harmony.

We remembered who we really are.

Everyone practiced unconditional love.

We realised we were powerful beyond our wildest imagination.

There was nothing holding us back, except our own self imposed limitations.

– We awoke from the illusion of this world

What a beautiful world we could create.. How I yearn for that world.

I began a blog a few months ago when I was at my lowest point so far in this life.  Most posts were very depressing and reeked of self pity.  All that was new to me – to feel so down for such a long period of time.  That was not me.  But at the time, I had no idea who I was, I had lost myself so completely and I had no idea how to get myself out of that space.  So.. I thought I would leave it all behind and begin afresh.

My thinking behind this blog is to journal:

  • The emerging new me
  • My new beginnings
  • My search for wisdom
  • My search for meaning in this pretty screwed up world

It’s going to be a pretty interesting ride (for me, anyway!).. 

I’m going to journal the books I read, the information I receive from so many sources, my theories on life and love (which, I am sure will change fairly regularly as I grow) and share the insights I receive.
