I have been feeling very reflective of late.
This is very much a phase of cycles ending and new cycles starting. Monkey is going up to a bigger school where she will have more responsibility and more freedom. She is at the end of young childhood and headed towards teenage years and maiden hood (she will be 10 at the end of the year). I’ve been a mother for nearly ten years, but wont be dealing with babies/toddlers any more. I have been fighting down my personal history for ten years. My company will be ten years old at the end of the year. It was ten years ago we moved to the unit we are now leaving. When we moved there my business was in its formation stages and so i got very little say in anything, this time the move is in my companys name and with it as an equal partner in the move. Man beast and I have lived together as a couple for ten years.
I always thought turning 30 would be the start of a new happier, more successful period in my life though so far it hasn’t been. It would seem though as things are lining up for this being the turning point for the cycle to begin.
