It’s when you start thinking of moving on from your current place in life that you can actually stop and take stock of what you are leaving behind.
It may be the place that you live or the job you are in or even the relationship you are in that you are getting ready to move on from.
For me I’m thinking now that I’ve lost my job, given up my business and sorted my friends from my acquaintances that maybe its time to move on and yet the ‘fear of failure’ voice in my head kicks in and starts reminding me that what I’ve got is good and why should I expect anything better than this. So just what is this?
I’m discovering now that the place I live is pretty beautiful.
It’s got history going back to Viking times with stones in the Church, a beautiful church with great bells that ring out across the area and especially Tuesday evenings, practice night. That’s a great night for a walk around the marine lake, whilst the bells peal in the distance.
Here’s a selection of pictures of this lovely place.
It’s got a lovely sandy beach, an old village centre and a new village near the train station.
In fact looking at the black and white one’s the place has hardly changed since the 1960’s.
The only difference is the cars now parked on the street – every where!
Neighbours who tell me that they will miss me and good friends I thank for their wonderful company and Sunday lunches!
In a minute there is one of my favourite views of the place and yes I will miss here but I am excited at what lies ahead.
So how do you leave something that now at the last-minute is pulling at the heart-strings? It’s about accepting the opportunities that are being offered. Looking to the future whilst still enjoying the moment of now in this place. Going with that gut feeling that even though it is tough, what you are doing is for the best.
I always think that what ever path you take, it is the right one. You will face tough times, learn new things and be better for the experiences. As I say ‘just do it’.
And now my fave view, will any other place top this?
