It’s the last day of April which means I’ve come to the end of my life overhaul. It’s been a brilliant way to start Spring. When I began it was snowing and cold and now it’s sunny and colourful flowers are popping up everywhere.
I’ve posted 29 out of 30 days about the things I’ve been doing and looking back I’m suprised at what I’ve done. It’s been much more of a spiritual and creative month than I’d imagined it would be on day one. It’s really helped to soften up the rigid structures which grow up around us invisibly; whether it’s the mayhem of week day mornings, or the auto-pilot routine of getting school uniforms ironed, nagging about homework or feeling the pressures of work, these things overwhelm us if they’re not offset with genuine self interest. I’d forgotten that I mattered to myself and was feeling a bit lost.
If you’re feeling stuck in a rut, I’d definitely recommend giving yourself a 30 day make over; the formula is a simple one – do something different everyday that’s good for you and gets you out of your comfort zone. That could be switching off the TV, booking a flight somewhere or starting to read War & Peace. It doesn’t have to be earth shattering, just personal to you. Thanks to all of you who have read my posts and left notes of encouragement, it’s meant a lot.
And now, I’m going to treat myself to a movie from my favourite director of all time, Almodovar, as a reward…
