I did a very stupid thing early this week and lost someone I care deeply about. A person who made me dream, who unlocked my creativity. A kindred spirit.
It has shaken me to the core. I am still reeling from from it today. It has been a rough week.
This has pushed me to make a few key decisions this week.
1) I will leave not stand for reelection to the post of VP Communications of the Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale Federal Liberal Riding Association. I need a break from political life. I want to move away from partisanship.
2) I will focus my attentions on research, creative writing and playing the piano. Those are the things that make me happy. And I need to rediscover what it feels like to be free and easy, and happy. To have a mind unburdened.
3) I will get outside more. Worry less, and enjoy every moment a lot more deeply – like I did before I lost track of what really makes me happy.
So – what really makes me happy?
The Arts. Cooking. Music. Creative Writing. Teaching. Learning. Research. Being Around People.
I am sorry to everyone and anyone that my stressed out self hurt or offended the last few weeks. I may have lost people who are extremely dear and special to me. I am reeling from this. I am in mourning at my own stupidity and self-absorption.
That’s over. I have taken steps.
The sunny land of creativity, friends and easy summer days awaits…
