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,’
‘Just believe in yourself. ‘
‘Don’t cry, you will be fine!’
‘I know I will.’
Margaret Anne MacDonald
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Look forward to hearing from you.
Much love Margaret xx
