New Age Me :)

Ok so I haven't blogged for a while but I have made a very big turning point in my life (well I think so anyway)! (shows what turning 46 does to a person)

I am now an empty nester (mixed feelings here) I am very happy for the kids as they have a lovely little place and they are very happy being independent!!

So with all this space and time to myself I have a few big projects on the go!
A light has turned on in my brain to tell me happiness comes from within and that I am the only one who can create my happiness - profound eh! So I have been busy reading some very enlightening books and working on projects that have been neglected in my life for a very long time!!

I have finally got off my behind and put in a vege/herb garden that I have been wanting for so long. The caterpillars are eating my broccoli but I don't care as it is such a good feeling to have accomplished a goal!! I have also been trying to colour up the garden and make it a more pleasant place to be! Those hungry caterpillars have eaten my marigolds but such is life in a garden :)

I am also finally paying some attention to my poor neglected house, I am putting in the little touches that will make this house my home!! Another of my profound ideas that I need to appreciate and be grateful for what I have in my life instead of longing for something I don't have!!

Another area of my life I have decided to work on is my brain and to that end I am starting a course in Aromatherapy. I have always loved oils and natural scents and been a big believer in their healing/therapeutic properties!!

I guess what I am trying to achieve is a balance in my life, now some things have taken a back seat such as my scrapping but once I find that happy medium I will have the time to pursue all the important areas of my life!!
