Life + stuff: Change

Ziggy still loves me (but Ziggy kinda loves everyone)

I’ve been a bit quiet lately, haven’t I?

It’s because my whole life has gone berserk.

In the past six weeks, I have started two new contracts (and resigned from three others), separated from my beloved First Husband and moved house. On top of that, I have also been lucky enough to have a crack at editing my favourite website, www.lostateminor.comĀ 

It’s been a super-challenging time of exhaustion and heartbreak and stress.

Change is really hard. It hurts (and disappoints and angers) people you love. It’s physically taxing (you stop sleeping and eating). It’s emotional taxing (you cry and panic a lot). It’s mentally taxing (you have to work when all you want to do is stay in bed for the rest of your life).

What also happens is that some people show incredible support. They call you and email you and text you. They bring you flowers and buy you herbal tea and hug you. They help you put your bed together, they loan you their car and they let you live at their house (thank you thank you thank you).

In the midst of all this commotion, there is hope; hope that I’ve made the right decisions, hope that everything will get better, hope that we will all be happy one day (if not today).

Have you ever made a really big change? How did you get through it? Do you have any advice for your fellow travellers?

  1. Yes my dearest Emma, I have been through some terrible times too, and my thoughts and love is with you during this time of flux. I think the best advice I could impart (from experience) is to stop listening with your ears, and listen with your gut, as everything else is white noise.

  2. Sweetheart, you are incredibly increduously amazing and I am so lucky you’re in my life. Sensing big love from off the western coast of South Africa xx

  3. I’ve put your post onto my Risks Blog http://365-risks.blogspot.com/ This blog is all about Taking Risks, Embracing Change, Optimism and Learning thru Mistakes and Risk. Your writing is just perfect for this theme. I wish you well and understand where you’re at now, and know you’ll be bigger and better for it.

  4. You my lovely one, are an inspiration!

    I cannot wait to see you happy. Happy like a cheerleader or a model – you know, something happy!
    You are such a strong person and to still be kicking, I admire you!

  5. Along side the grief that comes with change is opportunity, keep your eyes, heart and head open to the amazing things ahead… enjoy!
