I thought this blog had been lost in the ether of time. I just stopped posting when I started my new job and never came back.
I guess I felt that my blog was not being read, that I knew of, and it was becoming a bit of a burden rather than a joy.
But randomly I got an email to reactivate it so here I am.
Reading over my posts from over a year ago is pretty weird. I have changed so much in the last year. I don't even know where to begin!
So here is a quick rundown:
- same school but didn't manage to avoid big responsibility. I am now in charge of learning support and loving it. I think I have found my new passion, even if I feel like I just don't know enough yet. I am managing to actually enjoy my job and not let it rule my life.
- have moved house and now have a garden and a cat. I love my domestic bliss! It is amazing how your surroundings can affect you.
- have moved church. We are now at a large evangelical anglican church. I never thought I could enjoy a big church but I love it. It is a relief to not have to be there every week and I love the music. I will have to post more about my changing views on church.
- double income - we are on it. And it doesn't stretch very far especially when saving for a house!
So that's my life at the moment. Well a snap shot of it.
I think the overall change has been my letting go of having to be critical. I think it really is the culmination of my recovery from doing a BA. Don't get me wrong, I loved doing my degree, but I am so much happier now being more open and less judgmental. It is amazing how when you approach the world with an attitude of grace, you actually experience grace yourself. If anything, that has been the biggest lesson. Being gentle with others and therefore with myself.
Be back soon,
Hopefully not in a year!
