Are you having a lovely Easter? I hope so. I think Easter is one of the best holidays - less stressful than Christmas, lovely weather and lots of chocolate! To me Easter is also about new life, renewal and second chances. You know the theory that ever 7 years your body undergoes a total cellular renewal? Well, I recently took posession of my 6th new body and about time too I say! I really pushed the last one to the limit.
Over the past 7 years my body has carried, given birth to and feed two beautiful babies; slept very little; moved all its possessions twice; waited anxiously while 6 contracts with 6 different job titles were negotiated (even though they were all at the same place!), and agonised over buying its first home. I have faced the true extremes of human experience from the joyous birth of my children to the devastating loss of my parents. What has this all taught me? To be honest I'm not sure yet but I hope that whatever it is will inform the next 7 years which will hopefully be a lot less stressful than those just gone.
