We recently settled in Brisbane to be closer to family. During the last 12 months I have undergone so many transitions it’s incredible. Thanks to RTT™ the transitions have been made with ease, not angst. Let me tell you a little bit about my journey.
In September 2019 I flew to Broken Hill where my partner of 20 years had taken a contract to teach at one of the high schools. He had been offered another 6 month’s work and asked me to join him out there from January. I wanted to check out the town before I made the commitment to move. I immediately fell in love with the outback. It was immense and wonderful. Broken Hill was like a little paradise far from my normal life. I decided to take the plunge and move.
For the next 3 months while Tim worked in Broken Hill I packed up and stored our belongings, kept working our tropical fruit farm, running our Airbnb’s, seeing clients at my home office and keeping an eye on my 91- year old father. My sister would come down from Tenterfield to help whenever she could. It was an extremely busy time. Thanks to some Rapid Transformation Therapy ™ sessions based on coping with transitioning with ease I was able to breeze through it all.
We enjoyed Christmas and saw 2020 arrive on the coast with our family and friends. What followed was an epic 3-week road trip dodging bushfires on our way back to Broken Hill. Our dog Billy accompanied us in the back seat of the ute.
The evening we returned to Broken Hill I received a phone call saying that my Aunt in Melbourne was gravely ill. I did a very quick turn around and flew to Melbourne the next morning. I spent a week by her bedside before she passed peacefully in her sleep.
When I flew back to Broken Hill we had to move house. We were lucky enough to find an amazing home with great neighbours. I spent a week packing and cleaning and another week moving into our new home. In late February I flew back to the coast because I had tickets to see Elton John on the Sunshine Coast. It was brilliant!! I spent 10 days catching up with friends and going to the beach as much as I could.
By mid-March Covid was barrelling down on us so I flew to Adelaide and Tim met me there. We took in the Fringe Festival highlights and took off to the bush. Broken Hill was an amazing for Covid isolation. I transformed our desert back yard full of sand and gravel into a thriving oasis, made jam and baked a lot. I did many RTT™ online Zoom sessions for clients. It was nice to relax and enjoy my daily walks and explorations with our dog Billy. Life was a lot less busy and more relaxed than it had been on the coast.
In early July 2020, my partner Tim decided to retire. We packed up our belongings and headed for the coast. Another grandchild had arrived in May and we were eager to see him. We headed for Brisbane and were able to relocate before the borders closed. We are delighted to be so close to our growing families. It has also been nice to re-connect with old friends. Tim has set up his woodworking equipment downstairs and I am practicing my RTT™ from home via Zoom.
It has been an exciting year indeed and I am looking forward to many more. I am so thankful to have RTT™ in my life and I look forward to meeting you someday.
All the very best, Catherine
