Journalling with the Modern Day Goddess

I received my journal about 3 to 4 weeks ago. I didn't start it for 2 reasons. I had a lot of other books I was and when I read the first page I had just nothing to write.

Today I attended a workshop dealing with the topic of spirituality and solitude. I needed to take a notebook with. I could not find my notebook so I took my Journal for the Modern Goddess. And WOW was that the right thing to do!

I knew that I needed to start dreaming again I needed to new life vision. I had reached the point where I have basically reached all the goals I had set out for myself as a teenager. Now that I am married and have a child I found it more difficult to do. My husband and I used to regularly relook, rethink and dream together about the future. But since we have been here in Cape Town its been harder. I have had to deal with a lot of 'other' stuff that has taken a lot of our energy.

At the end of last year I finally felt I had reached a point where I am ready and need a change and my husband felt the same. I also felt myself hesitant, almost too scared to dream too big. Even with this possible move to Ireland, I have felt myself holding myself back. Not wanting to get too excited because I did not want to be disappointed. Now its just one more letter and our application is ready to handed in to the British High Commission. We have a house to rent and a school for my daughter.

Today in the community of solitude I had a break through and I know that I will be using my journal everyday.

Thank you Nicole and Tara for the tools, thank you Gordon for creating the environment for my breakthrough.
