Hey guys!! I hope you are all doing well, staying safe and coping with the craziness that is 2020. It’s been a year that none of us would want to revisit right?…and yet, good things are starting to happen, and they WILL come. I have to say 2020, for me, has been one of the most life changing, challenging, and yet fruitful years in a long time, aside from the elephant in the room that is Covid. Hence, months of radio silence on this blog, so if you wanna know what’s new about my life, read on…

Well, I have to say I feel free.. and so, so liberated! I won’t go into detail, but I ended my marriage earlier this year. What I will say, is that I’d been unhappy for a long time, and something happened involving the wasband (*husband-that-was*), that made me wake up and slam on the brakes, switch my life around, and put my foot on the accelerator to getting ‘ME’ back. It wasn’t an easy ride in the beginning, when you’re used to someone being in your life for 15 years…there has to be a grieving period, but it didn’t take me long! The thing is, I’ve been through a lot in my life, and each time I fall..I simply get up and come back stronger.
Now the old Heidi, yet.. *rebooted version 2.0*.. is back!!! I’ve evolved and continue to do so, and I’m ready to go with the flow for whatever lies ahead. Stress and tension has gone from my life, I’ve worked on myself both physically and mentally, dropped 2 sizes, I’m much fitter, healthier and feel emotionally lighter. I have good friends back in my life again (old and new), plus some amazing honeys in my Instagram community (you know who you are!). It’s about self-love, self-worth, and self-care. I may have hit 54 this year, but I’m much happier, more confident and more at peace with myself than I have been in many, many years! *insert massive smiley face*
Many of you will be pleased to hear I still have Loki, who found things tough at the time too, but he has managed to evolve and grow along with me during the second half of this year. He’s my rock. Yeah..it’s tough at times living alone during lockdown, but I’m happy in my own company…most of the time. Yes okay, post-Christmas lockdown 3.0 looms, but it’s about keeping the body and mind engaged, we got this. I go on 2 walks a day, hit into reformer pilates 4 times a week, apply myself to my social media/blog work, plus I’ve got back into meditation, so good for the soul energy. I have online chats with friends which usually includes a glass of something in hand as well as plenty of laughs, social distance meet ups, and the occasional visit to my parents, being my support bubble. Mostly, this involves dogs and being outside anyway…where would we be without our 4-legged friends right?!
I’m sure there are many of you out there that have had changes, good or bad, this year. “It’s been a crazy one”, is an understatement right?! I feel we just need to think of the bigger picture, by focusing on what’s really important, making some adjustments yet staying on track, and remembering that we should all be conscious in how we choose to show up in life. This is something that has definitely resonated with me in recent months. I choose positivity, happiness, gratefulness, and giving off good energy in whatever I do, and whoever I do it with, moving forward. I can’t tell you how liberated I feel, and I’m excited for the future and life in general…bring on 2021!!
