Where to begin? 3.5 years since my last post, and so much has happened. Sometimes I look back on the year that has been and can barely recognize the person I see in photos from early that year. I have taken to only recording my life’s journey in diary’s for the past few years. Still full of adventures, still with massive learnings, heart aches, wonderful romances and everything in-between.
What a time to be alive! In the past year or so with ol’ rona mixing things up, you could say the adventures just had to change a little. No escapades overseas, searching for turquoise seas and white sandy beaches, the adventures came with learning how to deal with my relationship to those close to me, and my relationship with myself. To honor the privacy of people close to me, lets just say that it has been a time of being confronted with some challenging beliefs about myself and how I want to relate to people. (pretty vague, might elaborate one day) I have found myself wanting to simplify my life more and more, which unfortunately has meant pushing some people away.
I’m starting off pretty morbid, so let me get to the positives… In solitude, real solitude, without distraction, without trying to find alternative ways of filling up my life, I have managed to get back onto a pathway of self enquiry and observation. I am hesitant to say self development, I feel this is something that ticks along ever so slowly in the background once I have allowed myself to first see what I am doing, observing my thoughts and feelings as I go through my experience of life in this body of mine. As time has gone by, I have ultimately noticed a growing sense of ease in all areas of my life. Nice I say.
I have never talked about it on here, but I started a construction company 4 or so years ago with a friend which has since grown into a pretty amazing company. With a team ranging for 12-14 people we have been privileged to be a part of some incredible projects over these years. Creating family homes for people, renovation houses and creating beautiful homes for people to enjoy. Running a business and certainly co-running a business has fast tracked so many learning situations. My need to be a good communicator and keep my head on in highly stressful times has definitely gotten better over the years, I am so grateful for the experiences and lessons I’ve been able to learn.
Well I suppose a romantic update is needed, not sure I have much talked about romance on here. I have a lady in my life, she is covered in fur, cute as all heck and her name is Lucy. Lucy the cat is now my little mate who keeps me company, I like to think I keep her company too.
One last update, perhaps some of the motivation of starting back with a post, I am about to have shoulder surgery, nothing serious, but it will mean I’m in a sling for 6 weeks and kinda useless. I guess I am preempting a time of reflection, and when I say reflection I mean shit scared about going absolutely mad without being able to run, build or do yoga. So perhaps sharing a few updates on the highlight reel of my life will give me something to do during that time.
Stay tuned 🙂
