This time of the year, every 5 years we are guaranteed of one thing; UK Elections. One thing is certain the current Government, just the same as previous Governments will make changes that will affect everyone’s lives in some way. Some changes may be beneficial for us, some not so beneficial. I hope that changes will benefit my family and those around me.
The past 5 years have seen many changes in my life and in the lives of people I know. Some changes have been for the good, some changes have perhaps not been so pleasant. I know that I have instigated some of the good changes and some of the not so good ones but there have also been changes in my life that no matter what I did or to be honest other people did, I truly believe the outcome would have been the same.
I’m one of these people who ponders over things for such a long while, stressing myself out about what would happen if x happened, if y happened and whether I can have any influence on the outcome. I think it’s the not knowing that stresses me, even more so now I have children. It also partly to do with the hidden control freak in me that’s not able to control everything so I need to know in advance what is going to happen.
I think both my maternal Grandmother and my Mother were both like that; they needed reassurance more than anything that life would turn out ok. I remember as a child my Grandmother would buy a paperback book at the beginning of the year which detailed her horoscope for the coming year. Each year, she diligently put the book away until New Years Eve when she would sit and read it. Surprisingly quite a few of the predictions did have some meaning to her. She seemed to naturally attract people were able to give insight in to her future, people similar to those at TheCircle and would take time talking with them. She found comfort in such things. My Mother on the other hand would read her horoscope daily and would regularly visit a clairvoyance or have her tarot cards read. She would never tell any person what she had been told and whether any of the things predicted came true or not.
I’m quite sure the next 5 years will also bring many changes in my life and in the lives of those around me. Some good changes and sadly not so good changes. It would be so lovely if I could see what could be happening in our lives and even more so if I knew I could influence some of these changes or is everything already written for us and it’s just our destiny?
