Hello! Remember me? Maybe not. Sometimes I feel this platform is like a Dear Diary. Nobody else is reading it. Just me and those gorgeous blank pages waiting for me to fill their lines with my odd insights and wise words.
Welcome back to me! It’s been a while since I blogged. I’ve been, well, busy. I know that’s the curse of the 21st Century but alas, I’ve got it. But I’ve also got a cure. It’s called TIME OUT. I took the cure and I’ve taken time off. Yes, I’ve packed up my things. I’ve closed various accounts. I have no ‘fixed address’. This is what I call…freedom.
I decided some time ago to go on my own version of a Walk About. I’ve used capitals to emphasise the importance of this experience. At 49 years old, most women my age are doing a wide variety of things that includes taking care of others. Not me. I’m solo – not – lonely – I’m single and embracing it. No kids, no husband = no commitments. So, I decided for the year of my 50th birthday I would embark on an adventure. A journey that will be no doubt different to the one I took over 20 years ago. The kind of journey I’ve done many times over the last three decades (OMG). It’s called travel. Just me and my luggage. We all do this in our own way. And that’s what I intend on doing. My version of a very long Walk About as a 49-year-old! Let the ‘games’ begin!
Oh, and speaking of luggage. I’ve decided that finding the perfect luggage represents my constant search for the ‘perfect’ man. The reality is, as we all know, there is no perfection in this human experience. But, I will continue my search for the best ‘fit’ for me. I am not looking so much for perfection but more for the right fit. The best representation of support and reliability that luggage can offer. One perfect piece (for me) that has many different compartments where I can store my hearts desires. And, as I embark on this journey of self-discovery and adventure, I realise I have WAY TO MUCH LUGGAGE! Ladies, please listen to me. Carrying all this S%&* is not fun! So, as I endeavour to reduce said luggage and change my ways, part of this discovery will be letting go. Stay tuned. Part of this Walk About will be to discover a way to live with less ‘stuff’ and more ‘heart’…more ‘focus’. (But still with the most important things like eye cream and various hats and…well shoes…I’m still a girl!). I am determined to experience less ‘busy’ and more – dare to say – MEANING. Aka Miss Meaningful. Hello!
This is the perfect end to the first introduction of 2020. I like the sound of Twenty-Twenty. I think this will be an amazing year. (I hope) Please my friends, and hopefully new found friends, stay tuned for more.
Peace. Love. Blessings. Love miss meaningful xo
