Growing up

Image from here

I have grown up. It is a shocking truth. It hit me right out of the blue.

I seem to have outgrown things that always meant the world to me.

I feel disconnected. Lost.

What do you do when you lose your roots?

Do you grow new branches? Or sew new seeds?

A combination of both, trim the dead wood so new shoots and branches have a chance to thrive, and have a clean out and sew a new bed and see what springs up, make sure to add lots of sunshine and tea, I mean water. Big hugs to you xx

Sew some new seeds and grow new roots.
Different things will mean the world to you now, look forward to the adventure ahead and enjoy the memories you have :)

Outgrowing a pot doesn't mean you have to throw away the smaller pot. You get in your new pot and keep the old one close by. x

Oh dig deep my friend, you will undoubtedly find some of those treasures you held so dear as a child. I totally understand losing some of them though. Sadly, birthdays and Christmas have been my casualties... and yet I can jump on a trampoline or ride the wildest rides in the theme park, til the cows come home.
I'm quite the juxtaposition at times xo

Scary stuff.

I wrote about roots and wings the other day. It still worries me.

I hope you are OK>

I found that thinking less and doing more worked. I just got on with things and concentrated on what I really enjoyed. Gradually I wound my way to a new equilibrium.

Change is inevitable. Sometimes we just have to go with it.

Take care.

You sew new seeds.
It's ok. It is. We change and with it brings new wonders.

I live in hope that my future holds big things. Because to date I'm kind of hanging in no mans land, feel like I have grown up so I'm not the young me, but still waiting to find out who I'll be when I grow up. Am I really 35 already?

Sew new seeds. I adore change and the challenges it brings. It gets the skin tingling!

Hope you find your place soon xox

Hello then aI first read the title I thought it said 'Throwing Up' and I thought - oh god no! Surely not?!!

This says most about me, after all I did have a dream I was pregnant recently... in my dream I was beside myself with horror... as I would be in real life!! But at my advanced age (hooray!) and with snipped hubby, I think I'm safe...

ANYWAY, just wanted to say... life is ALL about change, everything changes all the time... it's odd and it can be discombobulating. You do grow new branches and sew new seeds, you do, you will, you are.

I felt the same way a few months ago. It turns out that life was just making way for new passions and ways of being. Very exciting times! Be patient and those new branches will grow and take you by surprise!
