Contentment Is The New Black

When I finished writing my book, I found myself in ‘no man’s land’ and I felt redundant and a bit lost. Writing had been a very therapeutic experience for me and it gave me purpose and something to focus on but once I stopped writing, I found I had this empty space in my life. I also felt I had more to offer and I needed another project to document my ongoing journey and this blogging platform allows me to do this.

I am fortunate enough to have encountered darkness and found a way out and I now have a passion to help others who feel stuck. I would love to encourage others to start their own journey of self-discovery and perhaps my blogs will inspire people to do this.

My journey of self-discovery feels like a pilgrimage but also my greatest adventure which will continue until the day I die. It has taken me through my darkest hours but at last I am finding contentment along the way. I have moments of happiness and moments of sadness and all the other emotions in between, but I have discovered a new level of peace, and I tend to be in this space most of the time now. I appreciate that no moment is the same as any other because each one is unique and contains infinite possibilities.

I am still travelling along this never-ending journey and it’s not always an easy road, but I am learning to travel it mindfully. I’ve discovered that, ‘no man’s land’ is a resting place and I can choose to feel lost or at peace, it’s my choice.

Contentment is the new black and my favourite place to be.
