I Want To Go

This was my very first prose I WANT TO GO, that got published in a gorgeous book called Fingerprints around twenty years ago. If someone had asked me back then whats your message. I would have handed them this book and asked them to read it. I never realised this is what I was actually doing at the time. I had such a deep desire to write, any where any time. Words would arrive in little whispers, that I just wanted to share.

This morning it came to me to read what I had written many moons ago, after reading, I realised this was my message, this is how I’ve helped women for many years, there is nothing complicated about it, when you are in your own truth, sharing from your own heart, soul, your journey! Its been there all along!

 

I WANT TO GO!

There she is, packed up her job!
Off to bloody Greece, to live in a hut
Hoping to find herself-
Yoga this, Tai Chi that!
I feel like a spoilt brat
I’m jealous, I know
I really want to go
I was the one that kept telling her
To go –
Follow that dream
‘You can do anything you want,’
I said
‘Just believe in yourself. ‘
‘Dont cry, you will be fine!’
‘I know I will.’
I said.

This was my story, I WANTED TO GO, as it turned out the lady I wrote about didn’t go she didn’t follow her dream…I did (ha) not quite living in a ‘hut’ not my style. I opted for six weeks in Gran Canary Islands  with my then 5 year old daughter….at that time I was a single parent Goddess exploring moving to Europe and setting up my own business.

It was an experience that I learnt a lot from as well as being an adventure, the choice I made then was to stay in Scotland so my daughter could see her Dad when ever she wanted! Now my daughter is in her last years of her teens, a whole new chapter is opening up.

PS Now a days I wouldn’t just hand you a book, I would offer to help you through my Coaching. If you would like to explore Coaching together, you can email me at Margaret@goddessinthecity.com. Look forward to hearing from you.

Much love Margaret xx


Doing What You Love With a Loving Reminder From My Grandson

 

Allow me to introduce you to my beautiful grandson Jayden (that’s him in the pic)!  He’s  been doing what he loves. Which led to some of his ART WORK  been displayed  on the shop wall.

As well as feeling so proud of my grand son. I had a deep sense of closure, with a new understanding  (while I was taking his photo). You see this shop used to be  mine, Angelite Complimentary Therapies & Gift shop was its name in 2010.

When  I reflect back to this time, I see how much more aligned with my life’s work I am now, with a deep sense of freedom, purpose and fulfillment, that just keeps evolving as I do.

I had no idea that I would go on to create, Goddess in the City, a lifestyle passion based business, and do what I Love!

What a deep journey of the Soul to discover what you don’t want to do any more. If you don’t go and try it, you will never know , will you!

My soul was calling me to do more, to travel more to write to  Coach and Guide. When I let go of Angelite, it was a very difficult time, with a deep sense of relief at the same time.

One of the challenges I faced then was the  constant confusion, which really affected my confidence. How can I do what my Soul was calling me to do? I still didn’t really know what I loved to do (ha) 

The answer came one nudge at a time, when you trust your intuition your own Soul call, be led by it , it will guide you to your own fulfillment.

Filling your CUP with the things that probably wont even feel like work.  That’s doing what you love Its a journey , its a process, that when you step back every once in a while…. you can see “just how far you have come”! 

Are you doing what you love? 

Leave me your comment below, I look forward to reading them.

Big Goddess love

Overcoming Fear of Writing My First Blog

Overcoming fear (and a first blog)

I am doing something I have dreamed about for most of my life (writing) online. I have put it off because I like to write with “a good old  fashioned pen and paper”. Well that’s the story I have been telling myself and believing it…

When the truth is “I’ve been pretty insecure about actually writing my” first ever blog ” using my laptop, typing with one finger at a time ! (ha)

Already I feel amazing my words just like with my pen are flowing through me. Its amazing how much we do get in our own way .Stopping our self’s from doing what we love because we think its true !

What am I afraid off ?  What is so scary about writing a blog and letting  the whole world see it? (ha) The truth is nothing we make it all up in our imagination .The TRUTH is I’m overcoming my imaginary fear, simply  by writing and hitting publish .

Does that mean I will want to change it ! Yes I guarantee I will, Is it word perfect, I guarantee its not.I’m not letting the fear off not going for it  because of  what might happen or not happen stop me.

My wisdom has brought me here and if your reading this your wisdom has guided you here too . (thank you Wisdom) ha. As I am discovering I really can see I am going to enjoy this new part of my work

Its a great question to check in and ask your self. Is the story I’m telling my self  True ?

It doesn’t matter how big or small the thing you are afraid of is . What matters is that you discover your own truth about your fearful thinking . I can share with you right now my fingers are even kind of dancing off the key board now in a magical way. There is no FEAR I had made it up and now feeling joyful !

Why because I am doing what I know has been in my heart my whole life and that is to write to you, who ever you are I hope my words of wisdom guide you to see the truth that is in you. This “is” a special  blog  IF YOUR READING IT ( I hit publish) ha

If you have any thoughts on this first blog attempt, please feel free to comment below.

Love & Magic
