Welcome to 2014. Yes, a new year with new beginnings and changes abound for many around the world.
It has been a while since I last wrote on this Blog. There are so many things that have happened since the turn of 2014, that like magic, things have changed in my life somewhat.
Currently I’m wearing my Prada sunglasses (from Thailand), and sipping Green Tea on my verandah in the morning sun realising that I have had the Devil inside me – not literally – but in my head as Ego. Since I was 16, I have been scared of driving. Go forward 18 years later, and with some slight pressure, I decided that 2014 would be the year to start learning. My Ego was giving me the negative scary scenario about how driving is bad and scary and how Sydney drivers are terrible. Well Sydney drivers may be terrible at times, but well it shouldn’t be that scary. So on my recent 34th birthday, I received vouchers for learner driving. A week later was my first hypnosis treatment to combat the fear of driving.
Weeks later, I was in a car learning how to drive. The Devil inside me (Ego) was gone and I felt that driving is the thing that can open many doors for me – not just in greater employment opportunities – but driving people around, as they have done for me in the past decades.
So 2014 has started with changing myself for the better. Next week I’m beginning Italian lessons.
What have you achieved so far in 2014? I would like to know.
