Four Kisses ....

Three words ...
Two days ..
One heart .

People come into your life for a reason.

I believe in Serendipity. My own interpretation of it is, ‘a happy surprise’. Stumbling across something or someone when you least expect it and having your life enriched because of it.

I once described it as ‘looking for a needle in a haystack and finding the Farmers daughter’ (this obviously works best if you are male or happen to have a penchant for Farmers daughters of course).

When it happens it’s like a light being switched on in room you didn’t even know was dark. It’s like peeling an apple in one continuous strip and reforming the spiral to make the shape complete again.

There are so many analogies I could use here but you get my drift ………

I actually have no idea where this post is going. I’ve had a reflective couple of days. A little bit of thinking about the distant past. A lot about the recent past. Tying things together, seeing patterns, analysing. Wondering if there’s a moment in time before something happens, before something’s said when a simple word or action could have changed things and the future would have taken on a whole new shape.

I’m also a little worried that I’m starting to sound like I’m on drugs.  Well, I’m not, prescription or recreational (I’m even a little ashamed to say that I wouldn’t have a clue where to get any OR what to do with them if I did!). I can’t even blame alcohol I’m afraid.

I seem to have lost my mojo.

But, this isn’t what you signed up for.  This isn’t what I started blogging for.  This isn’t ‘People Don’t Eat Enough Fudge’!

I’m going to go find my mojo and nurse it back to health.  xxxx

Reflecting on our lives is a good thing, and you should look positively at it. How can you know where you are going without knowing where you have been?

What would I do without you Lou? (and how did I manage before??) I'm going to untangle the spaghetti that I seem to have in place of a brain at the moment and make things work for me

Hope you work your way through the spagetti, been there myself at times, but yes a bit of reflection is good, and I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason and something always good comes of it even if you don't see that until a few years later. Find that mojo!!

I'm loving your description of serendipity. I am also understanding that brain thing/mojo issue. I'm feeling in the same place. I desperately want to get my groove back. thinking of you luv! xx

I'm so happy that you don't know where to buy drugs. I wish more people didn't know where to buy drugs. I think drugs screw many people up.

You have a lot of mojo showing.

Sarah Mac said...

I'm working on it RP. I think sometimes it's easy to lose sight of the long term because the present seems so full of difficulties. Things do happen for a reason and sometimes that's the wake up call we need. Sometimes we have to keep the things the matter close to us and just ride the storm.

I read your post Gemma. So many people had said the same things I was thinking I couldn't think of anything new to say but I'm thinking of you too. x

You are absolutely right Janet and although my comment was a bit of a throw away remark I am seriously against all kinds of drugs. And thank you, maybe my mojo is just hiding for me at the moment.

Anne said...

Hi Sarah. Thanks for the kind words about the Doughnut French Toast. 27 year old son? Are you kidding me? You only look 27 yourself!

I lost my mojo with the placentas of my two kids. As the apron strings are slow pulling away, I'm just starting to find it again. Youngest starts school next year so look out!

Sarah Mac said...

It is a bit of a revelation when they start school Anne. Suddenly they stop needing you so much and it's frightening how quickly you stop being the center of their universe.

It's a good thing, of course it is because it means you've done your job properly but I guess you have to be careful that you don't end up like the grasshopper who sang all Summer and forgot to store up for Winter. I'm enjoying my children's increased independence and savouring the times they do spend with me while remembering, just like my eldest, there will come a time when they will make their own way in life I need to have something stored up for me.

Yep, a 27 year old son, scares me when I think about it :) Possibly my photo is quite flattering and forgiving but on the whole, I'm pretty happy with what I see in the mirror and thank you for the compliment :)) x

Catherine said...

Sarah, I like the introspection and think your mojo is still going strong. I'm pretty sure a trip to Italy would put us both back on top of our games!

I saw a comment that you have a 27 yr old son. I. DO. NOT. BELIEVE. IT.

lesley(pam) said...

My Mojo's been struggling too and you know how I feel about serendipity, we have parallel lives again. I did watch some Martin Clunes the other night though and have begun to rally round. Have you tried that again recently? It's easy to forget the things that support us. xx

Those reflective periods are the times that nurture creativity. I am thrilled that you see the need to look after yourself, it's really important. Be kind to yourself.
We sign up for Sara and not for Fudge ! x

Sarah Mac said...

Ahh, a trip to Italy Catherine, that would certainly help!!! :) A 27 year old son, I know,I find it pretty hard to believe myself at times :)x

Martin Clunes, another great mojo restorer Pam. I should give it a go. there's something about him that makes me feel he'd never let you down.I hope you find your mojo soon too.x

Thank you Spikey, I'm not really feeling much like me right now. It sometimes seems hard to be thankful for what you do have when you can only see what you have lost but sometimes you have no control over that and you cant keep wishing things were different so yes, time to pull myself together (I know, no one actually said that and thank you for that :) but it is what I need to do. x

We all lose our Mojo at times but it's good to sit back and reflect sometimes. Contemplate your navel and all will fall into place again. (That sounds just so wrong, but you get my drift)

Sarah Mac said...

Ha ha, I know EXACTLY what you mean Diney. I'm spending so much time contemplating my navel these days I'm thinking of having some worry beads attached to it ;) x
