Life + stuff: Change
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.com
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?
