Welcome to 2021
I am fortunate enough to be entering my 50’s this year, and if life has taught me anything it is to expect the unexpected.
When I look back I can only recall those defining moments which changed the course of my life. These are the ones burnt in my memory. All those sliding door moments that changed me into the person I am today.
Where would I be if I’d turned left instead of right? What choices could I have made differently in hindsight? Did I make things much harder for myself than they needed to be? Probably, but that’s human nature isn’t it?
In the pursuit of happiness, we don’t always think long term. We don’t always make the right decisions, but I believe we always end up right where we’re supposed to be even if we take the long way around.
2020 gave rise to some pretty ugly human behavior. My mum always used to say to me whenever you are pointing your finger at somebody there are always three fingers pointing back at you. This is something I have never forgot.
For the most part I have stood back and observed. Taking a step back from the emotional turmoil and taking sanctuary in my art room where I’ve created to my hearts content.
I know I have said this before but Light Workers are not rescuers. Light Workers are inspirations of light that draw people out of the darkness. Those that have seen this vulnerability in human nature as a chance to grow their businesses feels opportunistic and a little off to me. Again I will say ‘choose your mentors wisely.’
Look for people who will inspire you to be a better version of yourself. Someone who encourages you and knows when the student has surpassed the teacher. Remember you can only learn so much from one person, and they are just as human as you are. If that mentor is continually evolving with you then fantastic, but always keep in mind that any promise of ‘this next course will get you where you want to be’ most probably won’t! In the end stepping away from the teacher will also be part of your lesson.
Entering 2021 I have no clue what this year will bring. Unlike other years, I have no great plans. I have no expectations, I have no pressures on myself to ‘be something’ or ‘make something’ or ‘do something’. I thought for the first time in a long time I might just ride the wave and see what life presents. When the inspiration hits, which I am sure it will, only then will I make magic happen!
