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


Do You Trust Your Inner Goddess?

This morning I got the nudge to go for a walk, at one of my favorite little spots, about 5 minutes  from where I live to “fill up my cup’ … before I started work.
I had no idea that I would have the most amazing experience ever with three beautiful horses…
As I stopped to watch the horses, they were quite a bit away…they started to play “tig” with each other. One would nudge the other trot off then wait for the other horse to “tig” it. ( I found this amazing)

I cant put into words the feeling I experienced when this beautiful Red horse came over and stood at the fence, her eyes looking into mine… Goddess Brigit, that’s the name that came to me as our eyes met…
Brigit doesn’t back down … the message the three horses gave me, were to remember have fun, play and Don’t Back Down ….

I couldn’t wait to get to my work today and write to you… I wonder what would have happened if I didn’t trust my Inner Goddess!

When she nudges you, its always worth remembering your Inner Goddess knows what’s best for you, she will guide you.  One simple nudge at a time.

Do you  feel the nudge to leave me a comment, you can do this in the comments box below.

Big Goddess Love
