“About Me” Update

Wow it’s been a little over two years since I started my blog, and I’ve been thinking it’s time to update my “About Goldi” section, and after just reading it, I can’t believe how far I’ve come, and how I’ve received everything that I wanted for my “just right” life.  Except maybe not in the exact way that I was envisioning it.

For example I’ve had sooooo many friends and family around me. But when you’ve come from a drought, it’s felt like a sudden, heavy, rain shower that’s lasted for days and days, leaving you feeling totally unprepared. When what I was thinking of was more of a steady drizzle that you see is coming, but it’s perfect, just the way it is.

I talked of traveling, and in the last month I’ve been to the city of Santiago, and the desert of San Pedro de Atacama, Chile, where I stayed in Hostels, sand boarded, saw a beautiful cactus forest, and spent time in a natural hot springs. I walked on the vast an seemingly never ending salt flats. I stood lake side and watched pink flamingos fly overhead as the sun was setting, with the awe inspiring views of the volcanic mountains in the distance mimicked back in the reflection on the lake. I saw magnificent sunsets while at grand canyons and valleys, and stood at night, looking up at more stars than I’ve ever seen. Where just being there, makes you feel the grateful energy of being alive. I toured the Southern states of the USA going through Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, Alabama, and finding the small city there, with the coolest tag line – Boaz, Alabama – The City of Possibilities.  I ended my travels in the white sands of Bimini, Bahamas, where we relaxed, then snorkeled and swam in the turquoise waters, in what seemed like our own life size fish bowl.

And, I did find a love that I’m sure will last a lifetime. He’s like what I imagine a prince to be, from all of my fairy-tale books of my youth.  He is handsome, kind, caring, compassionate, loving, brings me coffee in bed, and says he will always love and take care of me.  “I promise, I promise, I promise”.

I’m writing twenty books in my head, and a few blog post online, and I’m sure the books will get on paper when the time is right.  When I started writing the blog I was evasive on my “about me” page mainly because I was at the lowest point I could possibly get. I had made a small fortune, and then lost it all – houses, acres of land, and cash. I had been living away from my family for 30 years, and then single for ten.  Sacrificing for my job, my children, my community, and my friends,  hoping I was making life better, I was generous to many, and yet was so tired and alone.  I was so unhappy, I knew I couldn’t remain focused on that, and ever live a happy life.  I needed a shift.  I needed Happy. Happy thoughts, Happy words, Happy news, and thats how this blog was born – and it worked.  I lost myself in success and found myself in my failure.

I was looking for my perfect life.  I believed it was possible, and then I started living it.

My hope is that you, and each and every person that reads my blog, finds there unique and perfect life. And, that what I write, helps, and inspires you to live a life that’s “just right” for you.

Love is the answer to all questions. If you find yourself troubled, unsure, and wondering what to do, the answer is always love.

Love yourself, do something that brings you joy. Love your family, Love your friends, your neighbor, your boss, the stranger on the street.  Be kind, think – how would you want that person to treat you.  We all make mistakes. We all have history that fuels our reactions, nevertheless put those reactions in check, think – what answer comes from a place of love.

If your down and out, feeling blue, then treat yourself gently. Give yourself permission, to let things go for a while. Treat yourself as, you would treat, the person you love the most. What would you do for them, then give it to yourself.

If the question is between a job, a meal, or a moral decision; Think – what would I love to do, what is best for my family, my friends, the environment, and even society as a whole.  Think of the whole picture and Whatever the question is, Love is the answer, and always Right.

Take Rest

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day and I told her how for the last two years,  I’ve kind of sequestered myself, voiding relationships and friends, until I could discover who I was without outside influences.  She laughed and said, “You know thats what they do with people when they’re committed. They put them in a place where they can be by themselves for a few weeks. They are not allowed to see any family or friends, not knowing where the problem is coming from.”  I laughed to myself thinking that I was relating to someone that was committed, and having felt a little insane in the last few months, was not all that comforting of a thought.

My feeling of insanity however is only coming because I’m doing things differently, that I have done before.  I am in fact, insanely happy, so at the moment, I don’t care.  My life has been spent doing all the things  “I should do” vs doing the things I wanted to do.  I still have obligations so I’m still not doing everything that I want to do, but I think that’s  a good thing.  As in all things no extreme is good; a totally hedonistic life vs one of servitude, “Goldilocks way” will prevail.  I’m not taking the safest way, but  I’m taking the path that brings me joy.  I’m writing, blogging, and taking care of myself with more rest and relaxation, exercise, healthy food choices, and choosing the friends I want to spend time with.  Friends and family who inspire.  I have no real income, and thats the scary part, and why I feel a little insane.  I’ve been an entrepreneur for the last fifteen years so I’m familiar with taking risk, but in the risk I took before, I saw a definite way to earn money.  In fact, that is why I chose to pursue those ventures; I was miserable, and I felt that life needed to go.

Life truly is too short to spend being miserable.  So I’m smiling, I’m breathing, and I’m going more slowly, all the while realizing how much time I’ve wasted and not wasting another minute.  I remind myself of a quote:

“Take rest, a field that is rested gives a bountiful crop.” Ovid

I’m giving myself time to do what I need to do for me, and I just know, the bountiful crop will come.
