Lessons in love…

“Instead of worrying about specific outcomes and results, just do the right thing. Reach out unselfishly and with love.” Brian Weiss

A mask of grief overlaid her pretty face, and mascara stained her pretty cheeks. She appealed to me with desperate wet-washed eyes to support her belief in love.

She just made a mistake, she said. She married the wrong man, she said. She had tricked herself into believing it was true love, or he had tricked her into believing it was true love, but she knew that her Prince Charming was waiting for her. Somewhere over the horizon was the man she would live happily ever after with – thoughts that kept her strong during the dying throes of a doomed relationship – kept her strong to care for the children.

“I know I will find him,” she said. “I think he may even be in my life right now. When I find my soul mate my life will be simple and filled with love.”

She was right… and she was wrong.

“Our lessons in this earth school must be learned by our hearts, at the deepest levels.” Brian Weiss

“Oh honey!” I thought. “What can I tell you? Your soul mate is always going to bring you your greatest challenges.” Then I poured all the love in my heart into the bond between us.

Here I am!

Today, I heard the history of my new-old building. You’ve probably seen the pictures on my website. Built in 1929 by two Methodist philanthropists, it has seen numerous owners both famous and infamous. Some even had to flee the country for nefarious and evil deeds.

But the most wonderful thing I heard was that there is a tradition of self-employed professional people loving the building, running successful practices and staying into their 80s. There is nothing I would like better.

The move has taken considerable effort. Thanks to everyone who helped, especially Ethan, Kyran and Finn, the miracle team who managed to insert and extract a retro kitchen dresser from the vintage lift. Special thank you to Rhianne for her interior decorating and feng shui tips, and also to the guys in the BTS café store downstairs for the free ‘welcome to the building’ hot chocolate. If you haven’t tried one, they are amazing. Thank you all!

The retro couch started it all. I am quite pleased with the ‘New York loft’ feel of it (or could it be that it reminds me of Sesame Street? LOL). Stay tuned for the photos of my ‘retro kitchen’ waiting area.

I have discovered the closest carparks and how much they cost. I have also re-discovered the tram! Cheaper than parking, it drops me off on the doorstep (well, almost!) and it’s a great way to meet new friends. A lady I met today knew a friend of mine. We both laughed. It was a case of one degree of separation.

Come and visit and tell me what you think of me new suite.

I am ready to start… past life therapy anyone?
