Great Friends, Wedding Fun and Love

I can’t believe it’s nearly October! This month I’ve been working hard and playing harder, it’s flown by. I have had so much fun and had some great times with amazing friends. Stuart and Michael (my friend that I run Create with) got married at the weekend, it was such a special day. One of the rooms they had for their reception was a bowling alley, some how after only one previous failed attempt at bowling many moons ago, I managed to get a strike in my first go!!!! ……and at some stage during the evening I seemed to turn a bit green, he he.

I read a poem at the wedding and I’d like to share it here as I found it really lovely and touching;

~ By Roy Croft ~
I love you,
Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.

I love you,
Not only for what
You have made of yourself,
But for what
You are making of me.

I love you
For the part of me
That you bring out;
I love you
For putting your hand
Into my heaped-up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things
That you can’t help
Dimly seeing there,
And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find.

I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple;
Out of the works
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.

I love you
Because you have done
More than any creed
Could have done
To make me good,
And more than any fate
To make me happy.

You have done it
Without a touch,
Without a word,
Without a sign.
You have done it
By being yourself.

I love this poem because it’s simply saying the truth about love and relationships, all you have to do is be yourself and that is where the magic happens.

My month of being playful has been perfect timing, just as all the other months intentions have been so far, with Ibiza, the wedding and I am leaving London next week so it’s been great having lots of fun with my friends here.  I feel a total mixture of emotions about leaving London, the closer it gets the more I just want to stay here. I want everything to stay the same, I still love London, I love living with my friends Polly and Britt and the thought of leaving my cat is heartbreaking. I know it’s the right time to do it though, it feels exciting not really knowing what is going to happen next and I feel shaking things up in my life will open new doors. I believe it’s good to challenge yourself, push boundaries and do things that scare you, that is where you grow. I’ll still be coming up to London for my business so it’s not like I am never going to be here again anyway, it will just be strange not having my friends so close.

So the fun still continues with a week to go before my new intention, being peaceful. Again perfect timing as I will have just moved to the seaside.
