Cinnia found her way back to the B & B to spend the night. She curled up in the big four-poster bed with a view overlooking the Irish Sea. Cinnia opened her journal to the page she had titled “Evoke the Past.” She began jotting down words describing her feelings while visiting these ancient sites over the last few days:
I’m so inspired by the history and vitality here. I’ve loved some of these tales for so long, seeing the sites where they were born brings them to life in such a new and interesting way. I feel the heaviness I have been carrying on my shoulders starting to lift away. I am eagerly anticipating each new day with an energy I haven’t felt in quite some time. The flame hasn’t gone out yet; there is a flicker there still.
I remember when I was starting out in adulthood and a career. So eager to please and prove myself. It was exciting, and a bit scary, but mostly exciting. My work was exhilarating; it challenged me. I’m finding I need that challenge to motivate, to inspire, to do something again that’s a wee bit scary but in all the best possible ways. Slowly, I’m starting to find me again.
Cinnia tucked the journal away and was soon drifting off to sleep.
Once upon a time...
