Keeping up with life!
Of jobs and cats and dating and more...
Hello lovely people,
It’s been two weeks already that I have been back to working a full time gig and I am probably in the honeymoon phase because I am LOVING IT! More than what I expected, given I’ve been working part time with the same organisation for almost two years. What is giving me joy is finally being able to set up a work culture that has at its core respect and care. Systems that allow people the space to be their best selves, and contribute from that space. It has always been my dream to set up a profitable enterprise which benefits all who interface with it, internally and externally, both monetarily and in bringing more smiles into the world. Having worked in all sorts of organisations and with people who have ridiculed my beliefs, I feel so grateful I held out nevertheless and so excited about the possibilities! Wish me luck folks!
The other thing giving me great happiness is that Ameya is back from her trip! I’m thrilled she had a wonderful time. I am delighted that I get to experience her energy again. And I am so happy that I can let her go back to taking care of her cats and plants and other parts of her life here that I have had to be an adult about in the last couple of months. I am in love with Uggsie and Sheru, I adore the garden and looking after it was joyful. I am at the same time MORE THAN happy to hand their care back and continue to bask in the love with zero responsibility, hee. I’ve realised that for me the single life means adulting just for me, I am not ready to be responsible for other beings, at the moment. Given how out of whack some of my inner instruments have gotten over the last couple of years of not really feeling like I belong anywhere, this is definitely clarity I needed to have and am grateful to know!
One last thing, my dating life has been busy! What is interesting to me, is how as I have grown comfortable in my own skin and the more I am able to trust myself (thank you Judy!), I am literally watching myself say the words and set the boundaries that I have always wished I could do and used to struggle so hard to. It feels like a giant leap for me, to be able to call out actions that are not in line with what I want. There’s this knowing that there is no need to settle, no need to invest in someone who is in a different space (however much I may like them.) At the same time, I feel certain I will recognise someone who works for me and is ready. Honestly, I cannot grin wide enough to express the joy I feel in my heart, at actually, finally knowing what these words mean emotionally and not just at an intellectual level.
One of the outcomes is the reel I have shared on our IG account today. Also do go check out this very vulnerable video Ameya shared on her experience of assisted travel.
