When I started the walk I was enormously relieved to leave behind me all the worries, stresses, deadlines and dramas of managing multiple projects both at work and in the community .
Now I am almost at the finish line of the walk and I feel anxiety rising in my belly at the thought that once over that line it means a return to the hustle bustle of working life. A return to deadlines, agendas and the pressure of managing multiple projects once again.
So I am sitting on a log on the edge of the forest listening to the warbling of magpies, delaying the inevitable .
To settle my anxiety at the thought of a return to city life, I must focus on the positives.
I must focus on my love for my husband and my family and allow that to expand and overide all other concerns.
I have missed my family deeply and long to be back with them now.
So I must say goodbye to this log and the magpies and go and see my family.
Hello family and city and all that those labels mean in my life.
