It's been a really long time since I've written here. There are various reasons for the absence, one of which is that I moved and have been settling in to my new home. It is totally the opposite of where I lived before. From a 100+ year old house to a brand new apartment. You would think it would be challenging getting used to all the new sights and sounds. Some of my neighbors are loud but somehow I find that comforting. I was a bit isolated in my old house which is exactly what I needed at the time. Now, the social aspect of this new home is exactly what I need. I'm loving all of the great amenities here and my apartment is beautiful and I'm slowly meeting new people. I'm within walking distance of work and the pub and the coffee shop...convenient to everything. There's still a lot of construction going on so I've gotten used to their 6am start time. I figure the earlier they start the quicker they'll be done. I overlook the pool which is going to be beautiful...when its finished!
Moving can be stressful, which it definitely was for the first couple of weeks. Now I'm loving it but I'm still trying to find my rhythm. It seems that I can only focus on one big goal at a time. The past 2 months, I've been focused on my health and fitness. I have totally neglected my writing. I'm even enrolled in an amazing course, The Conscious Booksmith, that I periodically check in on but I've put off actually doing the work. I know that I need to do the work, I'm not sure why I'm not. I'm trying to sit with it all and not beat myself up and do what I can when I feel the time is right. This, I'm sure you all know, is not very easy to do.
So as I sit here on my balcony, listening to various construction machinery at 7:30am, I'm just letting it all flow. Taking one step at a time, starting now by writing this post and hoping that sparks more writing.
