“You have taken enough now. It’s time to stop growing up, stop growing older, it's time to start growing wiser – and wilder.
There are adventures still waiting on you and this time, you will enjoy them with the vision of wisdom and the companionship of hindsight, and you will really let go.
It’s time to stop the madness of comparison and the ridicule of schedule and conformity and start experiencing the joys that a life, free of containment and guilt, can bring.”
She will shake your shoulders gently and remind you that you’ve done your bit. You’ve given too much, cared too much, you’ve suffered too much.
You’ve bought the book as it were and worn the t-shirt.
Worse, you’ve worn the chains and carried the weight of a burden far too heavy for your shoulders.
“It’s time” she will say.
“Let it go, really let it go and feel the freedom of the fresh, clean spaces within you. Fill them with discovery, love and laughter. Fill yourself so full you will no longer fear what is ahead and instead you will greet each day with the excitement of a child.”
She will remind you that if you choose to stop caring what other people think of you and instead of caring what you think of you, that you will experience a new era of your life you never dreamed possible.
‘It’s time’ she will say…
“to write the ending, or new beginning, of your own story.” ~ Donna Ashworth.
And so it shall be done! Today is the 1st of September 2017. It is Spring day! Hello there beautiful day...my favourite time of year...the start of flowers blooming...sunshine days...barefeet...shorts...skimpy sun tops and long leisurely afternoons watching the sun go down...Question is - Am I going to be writing the ending or new beginning to my own story? Hmmm....I like the sound of a new beginning...
