Change is inevitable. Marilyn Monroe is a woman that divides. I admire her and am often drawn to her quotes. I think that to an extent she was misunderstood, but behind the blond curly locks and sexy voice was a very wise woman.
Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
I was musing on 2015 and realised that so far it has been a year of two halves. For the first 6 months I was happily living in Westport, working away at my job, with a great social life and a fabulous circle of friends in Mayo.
The second half has been all about change. I found a new job in Galway – which was the first domino in a series of changes. I left my beautiful flat,and now know that I would have been given notice anyway as the owners were moving back! I bade farewell to familiar streets that I walked every day greeting people along the way.
The transition was not easy, but now I am starting to realise that this quote is true. New things are starting to fall together. I am writing this sitting in my lovely new home, contemplating putting on a fire with a pot of soup on the stove waiting for my dinner guest.
I have found new ways to exercise and am walking regularly.
I am closer to my family and am rekindling old friendships and making new ones.
I have new challenges in the workplace that are allowing me to exercise my mind.
So, thank you Marilyn for those wise words of inspiration.
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy my Wednesday quotation.
