I'm not actually a SPARKLING SUCCESS STORY in my own mind. But I'm certainly a work in progress.
Yesterday afternoon my gorgeous friend Coralie (Check out her photography webpage!) spotted little old me, sitting there as a testimonial in Leonie Dawson's Amazing Biz and Life Academy newsletter!
I couldn't work out what she was on about at first. LOL I thought she'd gone nuts! How did I get in there?
Then it clicked...
I remember writing that!!! Waaaaaaay back in January!
I had forgotten all about it. I saw the request for testimonials, wrote it, lodged it and promptly forgot I'd even done it.
Here is the part that interests me though... The timing! (Timing is a concept that is intriguing me lately... Synchronicity everywhere!)
I have been feeling very lack lustre for the past 2 or 3 weeks. My health hasn't been so good. My children's health hasn't been good. Our sleep, as a consequence has not been good. Less than nothing has been done around my house - what a sty! Life has tossed a few hot potatoes in my direction and I've been grappling with those... And then, as always, my head and heart work overtime on 'things' sometimes and I have felt the need to retreat into my cave and stay there for a while, to hurt, to discover, to heal. (Yet another blog post to write! I need to make a list!)
I have just been laying low and waiting for the mojo to find me again.
Then Coralie saw the testimonial and I got to read my own words.
Boy, can I kick my own ass back into the 'Sparkle Zone!' or what?
When I wrote that testimonial I was feeling so filled with a colourful life for the first time in years. I'd found enough get-up-and-go and some wonderful tools to help me, and had a reality check from life that I didn't ignore for the first time. It was awesome and I really was feeling a buzz through my veins as I found my wings.
But yep, life isn't always easy. I found my flat spot recently. And then - timing! My own words reminding me of how I felt and how I can feel again if I just pull up my saggy socks and get back on the horse!
So, here I am... :-) The first day of a new week and I'm going to leave that lull I've been having in a flurry of sparkle-dust.
Coming along for the ride?
