Turning the page

The time to resume our Sunday bubbles again is now upon us. After 11 years and 477 bubbles, I’ve decided to turn the page.

Of course, I could carry on. But my heart’s not in it anymore.

How will I be able to use my posts to encourage you to make choices that boost you, to listen to your inner voice and to see an ending as the start of a new era if I’m just following what my head’s telling me: “Go on! Keep going! You owe it to your readers.”

Maybe that’s what courage is. It would be much easier to carry on writing a post per week. But ‘courage’ contains the word ‘coeur’, the French for heart. My heart wants to do something new and make space for something else to emerge.

I wish you the same courage when it comes to letting go, making space, and listening to your heart to figure out what makes you happy and what no longer serves a purpose.

I’m touched by your loyalty and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Yours courageously,

PS: For those of you who would like to read original posts, I encourage you to follow the blog of my friend François Maurin: https://francoismaurin.blogspot.com/


Few people cry out: yippee, ironing!
This boring chore can eventually be improved by watching a television programme while doing it.

Sleeping on a creased sheet that’s straight out of the tumble dryer is not in the least bit appealing.

Our brain irons and tidies up every night. It smooths out, folds and stores all of our daily experiences to our internal hard drive.

We have two options to deal with a “crushed” relationship which annoys or upsets us: either we smooth things out or we put it to one side with the others that are piling up…and that we continue to keep an eye on.

The question is: do we still nurture the childlike hope that our creased washing will disappear by magic or do we have the courage to do something about it?
