OCT 2019. EARLY BIRD LETTER.
This Month: It’s never too late!
Time does fly. And I have been very busy. The Sound Champion Course has gone live, I am running Wicked Wednesday and I spoke with Oliver Jenkin on Sound Sensitivity. And the good news is that Oliver’s insights will soon be available online too.
I am currently deciding on the form. I am thinking of sharing Oliver’s insight with you via an e-course as well. It will be a course where you get to discover different viewpoints on healing. How does that sound? More on this ‘yet-to-be-developed-but-already-in-the-making’ e-course below.
What else is happening this month? Most of my work will be done from Mallorca this month. For weeks it looked like the 9th of October and our flight to Mallorca wasn’t going to happen anytime soon, and now we are here.
Hugo and I are back on Mallorca for 5 weeks to see whether we would like to live here. About a year ago, we came back from 9 months of Africa, 2 months of Mallorca and 4 months of Spain. Now it’s time for another adventure.
And it’s like I have been saying to myself lately: “It’s never too late for a new adventure!”. Well, I can tell you this. Once on it, it doesn’t always seem that ease when just daydreaming about it!
Even though it’s also time for a short holiday, I feel restless. New adventures, even though I often long for them, bring a lot of chaos too. And the chaos, always makes me doubt my decisions.
At home, back in Amsterdam I always dream about spending the Dutch winters elsewhere. Only when I arrive in another and sometimes new country, I often feel like rushing back home to what’s known, familiar, comfortable and safe. And I also know from experience; things need time to fall into place.
When I grew up, we moved house every 2 years. Sometimes when we moved, some of our belongings were still in boxes. You would thing, having experienced moving house so many times when growing up, has prepared me well for my current adventure. I am sure these experiences have helped, only I am also very aware of the phases I go through now.
Process of change. This is what a new adventure feels like for me:
- I want to move!
- Hey, I am doing it!
- Wow, we arrived!
- Oh no, what was I thinking?
- Let’s go back. This isn’t working.
- Let’s never ever leave. I love it here!
And then the whole process begins all over again.
Does it sound familiar?
> Have you tried changing something?
> What did you notice?
> What phases do you personally go through when dealing with change?
Well, Hugo and I keep reminding ourselves the following:
- Nothing is permanent.
- We can always go back.
- It’s not a must, but “I’d love to …”
- Let’s take it day by day and feel into the decisions instead of rushing them.
- We will just see what today brings us.
> What is your approach going to be when you find yourself in the process of change?
Hugo and I are also reminding ourselves to breathe and to actually enjoy this whole adventure. Even though we know it can be very challenging when everything that’s familiar, falls away. And it reminds me of a quote I read the other day:
“When what binds you, becomes a ‘bind’, it’s time to break free and start again!”.
Well, Mallorca here we are. Let’s see whether I am a true Change Champion ; )!
With love and care,
Marianne de Kuyper
