I have been reflecting on 2014 and I am pleased to say that I think had a pretty good one!
I started the year off pretty much the way it’s ended…travelling. Firstly, in January I went back home to Melbourne to celebrate my Mums 80 birthday, and what a fabulous celebration it was. I’d also been very fortunate to spend the three months of summer living in New York with a friend of mine who recently moved there from L.A. Summer in the city was very hot and humid and I was a little nervous that it would be unbearable, but I survived. I came back again in December to spend Christmas, and guess what…I’m still here! My friend can’t get rid of me; it’s now becoming a home away from home. However, as much as I love the Big Apple, I still enjoy living in London.
On a creative/work level my first novel I Listened to my Heart is doing well and is under consideration by a publishing company. As you can imagine I am quite excited, and my fingers are crossed that it will be accepted. I also finished writing the sequel, titled MAKTUB: It is written, and look forward to publishing it very soon. My tarot business is growing every day and I feel very blessed that I have a job where I can work anywhere in the world (as long as I have internet connection). I have met some wonderful people, made new friends and have connected with a brilliant singer/songwriter who I’ll be collaborating with over the coming year. I signed my first music contract with a publishing company for my song; ‘I Have a Feeling’ and recently won semi-finalist for my new song ‘Like a Bird’ in the 2014 Song of the Year competition. The icing on the cake had to be meeting the handsome and successful Christian Bale at the premier of his latest movie, Exodus: Gods and Kings, and like a star struck fan I had my photo taken with him! There are some opportunities a girl just can’t pass up!
On a personal/spiritual level, I have finally found peace with a challenging emotional situation that had consumed so much space in my head and heart over the past few years. I haven't got the outcome I thought I would, and that's okay, as what I gained from this experience was a gift in its self…I found my creative and spiritual voice and for that alone I am grateful. Yes, everything does happen for a reason and I’m ready to embrace the coming year with an open heart and mind, the past no longer dominating the present. Roll on 2015 - it’s going to be a goody. I can feel it in my bones!
Love, Rosemary :)
