I feel like Woodstock in this cartoon lately. Whilst I’m pretty much fine about my redundancy now and am looking forward to all the new and exciting things I could do in the future, my body has other ideas. Every few days it seems I hit another little dip in my health, and I get over it just in time for the next one to come along. The shock of hearing the news about my job so unexpectedly has really messed with my sympathetic nervous system and now it’s taking forever for it to get back in balance.
My reiki practitioner thinks that this is a period of readjustment, and that I’m clearing out all sorts of old habits and responses and modes of thought that I don’t need any more, ready to move into a new phase of my life. This has the advantage of being a very positive perspective! So I like it and I’ll keep it; I just wish it didn’t mean in practice that I had to feel so rubbish.
Many apologies to friends who are waiting on an email from me, and to bloggers whose posts I regularly comment on. I’ll be back! And as soon as I actually finish another book, I’ll write about it here.
