In The Meantime - Allowing Change To Happen

Over the years, I've heard a lot about this place called 'The Meantime' - the place between that which has gone (ending of a relationship, job, project, phase of your life etc) and that which has yet to materialise - your next step 'up' on the ladder of life.

It's easy to live small - to stay safe and hide behind our thoughts of 'I can't, I won't or I don't want to'. But consider, all of these thoughts are just that. Thoughts. They're not real. Just illusionary limitations, self imposed prison cells.

Ah swimming. I miss it when I'm not doing it, a bit like sex with a passionate new lover. Though swimming leaves me much calmer, connected and less likely pregnant. I mean, I seriously hope less likely pregnant. What are the chances of getting pregnant Virgin Mary style in a public swimming pool I wonder?

I started bleeding on Christmas Day, not a lot, just a little; small brown stains, just enough to notice. Sharp pains followed, shooting up my tummy. But then they were gone. The day went by, a blur of smiles and anxiety, trying to be normal so not to rouse suspicions from a family who were non-the-wiser

We drove around for hours, tears rolled down our cheeks, crying together; for you, for us, for what we had and what could have been. We pulled up on the moors and watched the burnt red and orange sunset; like a poppy painted into the sky until it disappeared. We could feel you with us.

My Miscarriages Made Me

Accept what's happened. Our babies weren't meant to live on this earth. They came for a little while and then they had to leave. Accepting that your baby has passed is one of strongest things you will ever do. It allows you space to breath, to move forwards and to cherish what you did have, while you had it.

As I continue to recover from my recent surgery, I have realised in the last week how important my partner's role is for our son's development. Of course, I have always known that my son needs his daddy but when your partner works offshore and you are the one running the household, often alone raising your child it is easy to forget

A stroll through the woods, colourful leaves gently fluttering down to the ground like the wings of butterflies, the sounds of chirping birds, the sunlight turning the bare branches of trees to glistening gold - the heart absorbs such natural delights, with no words, no thoughts

Better to Do It Than Live With the Fear of It

Last year I jumped out of a plane. It was my biggest fear, and became my biggest thrill because, sitting three miles up with my feet dangling over the edge, I wasn't scared. At all. Nothing of what I feared about that moment came true. And I realised that it was never a fear of dying that had kept me from jumping, it was a fear of what people would think of me if I chickened out.

Holding on

What do you mean I'm holding on? I'm trying to forget it but the wretched thing just won't go away! That's exactly the point. Your head wants to get rid of it but your mind is holding on - without you realising or knowing why. Eventually your holding on will form a habit and that is how you will tend to react to situations.
