Lightening the Load

It is a joy to welcome Maree Crosbie back to The Calm Space! More about Maree below.


I have recently made some very big changes in my life and these changes have significantly lightened my load. I also have a new awareness and appreciation for different aspects of my life.

I left a stressful and toxic work environment and found the first two weeks very confronting as suddenly there was time to think about all the issues and the effect they had on me. I felt sad and sorry for myself and felt like I would be stuck in this place for ever. Fortunately I have a wonderful husband and son who were there for me and eventually the sun did rise on a new day and this phase passed allowing me to feel a lightness of being and to see and appreciate different aspects of my life.

I found that I was appreciating the small things – really noticing nature, the change in the colours of the winter leaves, I had time to read and talk to friends and to enjoy cooking.

I am now venturing into the wider world but will endeavour to keep lightening my load.
