I felt it was time for a short update on my adventures over the last few years.
Sometimes it’s very useful to give oneself a ‘health check’ on goals.
Quite a few years ago I set myself some goals I wanted to achieve. The other day I re-watched a video I had done at my thank you party back in 2010 – so several years ago!
I wanted to travel
Well, I am. I’ve been to many countries since then – Ethiopia, Panama, India, South Africa, Zambia to name a few.
I wanted to own my own house
I do. Not quite the house of my dreams but I wouldn’t change if for the world. I feel safe here. I have lovely neighbours. I have a great garden
I wanted to become a better photographer
I’m having a great time working on that. I know I am improving. I have all the kit I could possibly need! I’ve been on courses and I now manage a few good photos when I am on my travels. I even give illustrated talks about my travels to local community groups.
I wanted to become a Life Coach
I am! I did a great deal of training. I threw in my safe job. I now earn more than I did when I worked full-time for someone else and I don’t work full-time! I love my job. I love helping others achieve their goals and ambitions.
So the big question?
How do I feel about my Ex? That man whose actions sent me spinning in this new direction? Well, I think I have come out of it all (whatever it all is) in a great place. I am happy being me.
I look back on it all now and see where we both went wrong – and yes, I take 100% responsibility for my behaviour in the months leading up to our split. I wasn’t in a good place either. I see that now.
I haven’t met my Mr Right yet but I know now the type of man I want to spend the rest of my life with. And if he doesn’t show up then so-be-it. I am having a great time doing my own thing.
