What you wish for

P1050312_FotorYou know that old saying – beware of what yo wish for.

Fro me, that usually means that whenever I wish for/plan for/think about something, it happens far more quickly than I had intended or thought about.

This is actually not a bad thing. It simply proves to me that I am very powerful. Thoughts become things – hurrah for my powerful thoughts!

So – where am I going with this? Well, I have been talking about a three-day work week for some time now – followed by thoughts of easing back more and more over the next couple of years. This week, I took Monday off. Tuesday has been devoted 90 per cent to gardening. So far I have nothing on the books for the rest of the week.

I know that the newspaper’s owners are giving more and more work to their son – and that’s not surprising. And it’s also perfectly fine. I am going in the direction I want to be heading.

For the first time, I am not concerned about a lack of work. Instead, I am planning my time. What is next? What will I do next?

The possibilities are interesting. And no, they do not all involve hiking – surprising as that revelation may seem. There are also other things I want to do in my life – more traveling, more writing.

And – if thoughts become things, I am also going to have to face something else. I have been saying for quite some time now, that I do not ever want another relationship. So far, so good. But is this really true? Do I really want it to be true? Can I change my mind? Can I say instead, that I want a healthy, fabulous relationship with a man who will be my best friend, my buddy, my hiking companion and my lover – all rolled into one? I suspect I can switch to that, but only because I have accomplished what I needed to first – come to the point in my life where I truly love and respect myself and don’t need someone else to complete me. Most importantly, I know now, finally, that I will not change myself to please a man.

So – maybe it’s time to focus on new things – the future – amazing possibilities.
