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!
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. ‘
‘Dont 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 didn’t go she didn’t 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 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
