My lack of activity and the A-Z blogging challenge

I haven't done a blog post for a month. I've been away for a while this month, but the truth is, I haven't really felt like doing much writing recently. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster month, March, and I will be quite glad to see the back of it, truth be told. I had a good time in Austria, a beautiful country, then I spent a week with my parents in Dorset, now I'm back home, with little money and so I'm having to make the most of what resources I do have. Not always easy for me.

I've signed up for a blog challenge which is here. In some ways I'm not quite sure what I've let myself in for, but it will probably do me good. Basically you have to do a post on a subject beginning with each letter of the alphabet, in 26 days. Not quite sure what I'm going to come with for the letter x, as xylophone is a bit too obvious and I'm not quite sure how I'll be able to do a blog post on a xylophone without copying from other people. You can have a theme - my friend is basing her challenge on 'feelings' - but I'm not sure if I will - I might just do some random posts and veer away from the 'normal' kind of blog posts that I do - but we shall see - the posts will probably mostly be based on 'life stuff'.

I'm still not working, but would like to be doing a little bit more - maybe some voluntary work to start with. I am quite good at keeping myself occupied, but it's harder when the weather isn't so good, and I'm not keen at staying home all day - last night, I had to get out of the house because my mind was going round in circles - and a two hour walk actually did me good in the end, although I did get semi lost - ie I knew where I was but came to a bit of a dead end. That was fun.

I am grateful still for the new connections that have come into my life this year. The process of awakening to who I truly am is not an easy one at times, but the things I've learnt have helped me to stay sane (just about) when going through challenges that might have floored me a year ago. The Universe will leave no stone unturned when it comes to emotional healing and removing the blockages that prevent you from realising who you truly are. For so long, we've believed that we are our mind and the thoughts that we think - but we are so much more than that. There are things I'm still learning and some things I haven't quite decided on in terms of what I believe - but it's been a worthwhile journey. As my teacher said (paraphrased) 'On the spiritual journey, you will have to let go of your beliefs and opinions'. This is true. We have to be less attached to 'my' opinions and what 'I' think.

Anyway, that's it for now. I will be back in April blogging on a regular basis.
See you soon

A few things this week has taught me

Well well. This one really has been one of the toughest weeks in a good while. It's pretty rare for me to get too depressed these days, ...
