It’s quite a coincidence to have looked back through my photos of a lovely weekend a couple of weeks ago to see that the location is saved as Hope Valley. Evee has written about Hope Valley few times as she gets on the train to come and visit me. I had no idea that on my own travels the other day that Mam Tor is actually located in Hope Valley.
I have lived in this area since September, but have had little opportunity to get to know my new surroundings thanks to the lockdowns. And when I do drive anywhere, I just pop any old post code into my phone and trust the kind voice to get me where I need to be. But believe me, dear reader, I am well aware of my whereabouts right now.
I am in my element.
After being restricted for so long, I am so grateful to have been able to stand completely free at the top of Mam tor, in love. In love with the promise of finally getting to know my new surroundings, in love with people I barely knew and completely and utterly in love with myself.
I’ve always been hopeful. Hopeful for change, hopeful for happiness. But I have had many conversations with the Universe recently and I know that I don’t need to hope anymore, I choose to trust.
When do you feel in your element?
