Confessions, Virtual Spanks & Tangible Insights

Confessions, Virtual Spanks & Tangible Insights

From the depths of lunacy to a cinema near you...

Firstly, I do apologize for my lack of being a blogger-addict; I just haven’t had the time between projects, study and life in general. There simply isn’t enough minutes in the day, that or I seriously need life management. These past few months had just been strange, from one extreme to another, study has been crazy not to mention the writing projects I already have and more placed on the silver platter for me to consider. Time seems to be flying, sometimes upwards, sometimes sidewards in rather chaotic sporadic patterns but rarely ever downwards. Studying an Advanced Diploma of Western Herbal Medicine has been a beautiful learning experience, and between the learning process, writing and my family (including the gorgeous network of friends I possess). I have felt indeed blessed especially after a few virtual slaps along the way which were certainly needed for I am extremely close to having a dream come true. The only thing which maybe prevents the full fruition is myself, to take the initiative and just “DO ETTTTTTT!” so many of us procrastinate for whatever reason, be it fear of rejection, frailty, lack of resources or support, self-esteem, motivation. The ‘fuels of failure’... so I have come to entitle them.

A true friend, will always inform you of your sillies, but also praise you for your glories; they speak to you openly, and should always be able to do so regardless of whether it may upset you. They will tell you where you are going wrong in life, whether you believe you are or not; they offer an insight that at times we fail to see because we are crashing blindly into a travesty or a brick wall. I am one of the luckily ones who have a wonderful network of friends who can and will kick me up the rear on such occasions... all good I say, bring it on! Happily so, I have an amazing group of assorted folks who are there for me, during the up’s, down’s and chaotic in-betweens which manifest randomly; and likewise. It has taken many years to find these beautiful people, sorting through the proverbial trash of gossipmongers, fakes, malignant people who lie to manipulate others into believing their lies, and basically scum of the earth trying to guise themselves as diamonds. It happens, such is life! But I thank Hekate for removing them from my life, now I would like for them to leave peacefully back to the snake-pit from where hence they slithered.

What truly matters, is who I know I can count on for these beautifully kicks in the rear, but also advice given with genuine sincerity, compassion, love, honour and experience or simply an ear to listen. To my friends, and you know who you are...  I owe you all thankfulness, and the words “Thank You” will never be quite enough for all that you have given, shared and expressed. Each of you have a piece of my heart, and even though I personally find these words are not enough, but I love you all so much, that it even transcends above the dialogue and usual understandings. You all instinctively know when there is something amiss, you all offer words that I need to hear, and hope you always know your advice is welcome and never falls on deaf ears rendering that I plummet headfirst into an abyss of pandemonium. I shall always come to you should I require/or in need of a swift spanking. A total meltdown is no option. So heaps up for the past and in advance (with love and gratitude) thanks for the virtual spankings and occasion kick up the jacksy!
