Preparing for Change

We are approaching the Summer Solstice, the middle of the year, and once again time seems to be flying by at an ever-increasing speed. My mood seems to be quite changeable this week, probably due in part to pregnancy hormones. I recently had a slight crisis about my spiritual journey, worrying that I was not doing everything I should be. I soon realised that there are no rules and regulations when you travel the shaman path. You do what feels right, honour the seasons and your friends and family, and it all follows naturally.

This week my mood has turned to the sales of my books. I am still chasing the dream to become an international bestselling author. I also understand that I need to try some new approaches in the way that I market my books, in order to increase my chances of being seen by the right people at the right time. There are lots of little activities I can do, mainly online, to increase my readership and reach out to people. I also need help, and at the moment I am trying to figure out where that might come from.

Of course, the biggest change I am preparing for is the birth of my second child. The baby is due in July, and so now I am beginning to think about planning my workload so I can take time out to focus on my new baby while still showing attention to my toddler. I also need to sort out the more practical arrangements, such as fetching the newborn baby clothes down from our loft. That is a job for my husband on his next day off work! In the meantime I am having to listen to my body and get some rest, or as much as possible while I am at home being Mother and Housewife.

It is a funny time of year, both exciting and a little sad. We say goodbye to people as they pass away, we meet new people as our journeys twist and turn, and we rethink our attitudes and assumptions about the lives that we lead. What is changing for you at this time? How do you feel about it? I am mainly feeling a kind of excited anticipation, because I know that my life is improving a little bit more every day. Be strong, be brave, and be happy!

    I’m so looking forward to hearing of the safe arrival of your baby. Best wishes.

    I plan changes all the time, but whether I make any… not sure yet!

    Waiting for the blessed news of a healthy baby.
    We just moved from WA State to Hawaii. Huge change! We’re still trying to settle in, more emotionally than physically. It’s a big transition. Sometimes I wonder if it was the right thing to do, in spite of the fact I’m healthier here and can actually walk. I can’t in the colder climate of WA, but we left all our family back home … and it’s lonely here. Still, I’m glad we did it. Mostly.

    • Wow that is a big change, well done to you! I remember how homesick I got when I went to university, and I was only 200 miles away from my family and a 4 hour train journey. You will settle in after time, you know that, and it sounds like a beautiful place to be anyway.

        It is beautiful, and exciting, and sometimes overwhelming. But we’re both loving it in spite of the stress of the move. It’s fun to get away at the weekends and just go find new beaches and unexpected places. And sometimes we go to favourite places because they are … favourites. So yes, it’s great, in spite of the bugs, and the leaves which insist on jumping over my doorsill every day and making me sweep. I guess the leaves would rather be decorating the house than on the lychee tree. Thank goodness for stone tile floors!
        How are you doing these days?

      • Aww! I’m glad you are embracing the change. I am doing well thank you, feeling very heavy now in the last stages of pregnancy, but everything is progressing as it should.

  3. What a great attitude! My youngest recently turned three, and I’m glad not to be going through pregnancy and newborn sleeplessness again.
