“What I’ve learned over the years is that in order to nurture your inner stability and maintain your personal identity, you have to first figure out who you are as a person and harness an unwavering connection with that person.” ~Etta D Richards
Change is the only constant thing in life. Some of us change for the better, some of us change for the worse but whatever the case reinventing yourself is constant and necessary because life is like a pendulum, always in motion and sometimes this motion can leave us unbalanced. I am at the end of a two week holiday to The Bahamas. The trip was long overdue, it was my first trip back home since leaving for Scotland five years ago. When I left five years ago I needed a change in my life, in fact, we all needed a change. The kids needed to broaden their horizon and I just needed spread my wings. My inner stability had become pretty unravelled by the daily routine of a perpetual cycle of going nowhere fast. The trip home was not only necessary but it brought back the reality of why I left in the first place. It was great seeing family, old friends as well as reconnecting to the place, burning bridges that no longer served a purpose while creating new ones that would be beneficial in the future.
