To say that the last few months was hectic might be an understatement, but I can sit here tonight, look back and give myself a high five or a very strong pat on the back. I made it…. through all the madness of buying a house, packing, moving, working, trying to maintain a social life AND studying I made it through.

 I sometimes caught myself thinking and wondering what the heck I did with my life/time before 2017? I now find myself hardly able to watch TV as I find it extremely monotonous and basically just a waste of precious time. Sure, I’ll watch a series or 2 and VIAtv has this aaaaamazing lifestyle program following the travels and culinary creations of Michelin star chef Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen.
But that’s a mouth-watering post for another day.

The good news is that from today I’m on 2 weeks leave from work and can do nothing with my time and spend money I don’t have. Because let’s be honest…you spend a lot less money when you’re at work, so I’m in a bit of a predicament now. I’ll just spend my days hiking mountains, running, reading, painting and sorting out the house. Oh and trying out gin….yes, the alcoholic beverage. Since I’m histamine intolerant I should actually stay away from my wine and bubbles and guess what is low in histamine….yes, lovely gin…which I’ll jazz up with colourful tonic and beautiful rose petals 😊

Nonetheless life is good. I’ve made new connections. I’m spreading my wings. I’m committed to Yoga. I still fight with my inner self (which I hope the yoga will help with). I try to make peace. I try to be more mindful. I still want to be free from worry and control.

I believe the next two weeks will be a breath of fresh air, new ideas and inner peace.
