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 what is your message.

I would have handed them this book and asked them to read it. I never realised this is what I was doing at the time. I had such a deep desire to write, anywhere 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 have 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!

 

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. ‘
‘Don’t 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 did not go she did not follow her dream.

I did, 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 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 whenever she wanted! Now my daughter is in her last years of her teens, a whole new chapter is opening.

PS Now I would not 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 hello@margaret-macdonald.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 is him in the pic)!  He has been doing what he loves. Which led to some of his ARTWORK been displayed on the shop wall.

As well as feeling so proud of my grandson. 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 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 fulfilment, that just keeps evolving as I do.

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

What a deep journey of the Soul to discover what you do not want to do any more. If you do not 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 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 did not 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 fulfilment.

Filling your CUP with the things that probably will not even feel like work.  That is doing what you love Its a journey, it is a process, that when you step back occasionally…. 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.

Wisdom leads the way,we follow,one simple step at a time!

Wisdom leads the way, we follow, one simple step at a time.

You see, we always know what to do next, what we do not always do is TRUST what comes to us. Sometimes it can be so noisy in our heads that we cannot hear our wisdom whispering our guidance to us.

Paying attention to the first step on the stairs is all we need to do, keeping it quite simple. It is all in the moment, this is what gaining clarity feels like, freeing you to open to what you already know to do next.

These beautiful steps are from a Coaching retreat I attended last year in Italy.  I remember these steps; in that moment I saw that it is so easy to try to jump to the top of the stairs without ever taking the first step. There is no rush. When our minds settle down, you start to hear your own simple guidance.

Let me use this blog as example, I heard a whisper to PRINT my draft blogs. I got a good feeling when I heard this whisper. Following my guidance, the blog I was drawn to is the one you are reading right now! I got a huge surprise when I read it. I had written it months ago.

Now I understand seeing the guide in print really touched me, something about it let me see I was not trusting my next step fully. Which is for me to write and hit publish 🙂

Well, I thought if this guide has helped me, who else might it help. Bingo (ha) See how simple it is when you trust what you hear, following what comes to you one simple step at a time.

I would love to hear your thoughts, just leave me a comment below!

Lots of love
