Many have asked what I have done in the first few days of my newly discovered freedom. How does one begin to describe what joyful things I have done? Mundane to some, joyful to me; organizing cabinets, walking the dog for pleasure not demand, sitting on the porch, pondering life’s big questions, watering my garden, spending time with my favorite girl, and ghastly I even found myself ironing a few shirts. More than the tasks, I have been nurturing me.
In doing this, I have definitely noticed a complete shift in my energy. No longer do I feel like I am carrying the energy sucking leeches on my body. I have an extraordinary amount of energy and a significant lightness of being. I am joyful, airy, giggly and totally relaxed. So relaxed that when I mistakenly erased my entire contents of email, I handled it remarkably well. I even told the lady at the Apple store that since I am practicing non-attachement, it was all good.
Adding to my relaxed state of mind, I have been incredibly creative. Being creative is our nature; how it looks for me may be entirely different from someone who is creative with music or art. I am creative with my house, the foods I cook, and in my desire to define my purpose. I know for certain that I am supposed to share my blessings with others, perhaps in person or in the vastness of the internet. Check out my new blog that has a different flare and a different tone than this one; less personal, and yet I hope to still convey my personality and my deep desire to be authentic.
You see, I am joyfully ecstatic with my new life. It is amazing to just be home, talk with my girl or listen to her sing, be surrounded by my blessings, and simply…be me.
