These past few weeks, my mind has been a whirlwind of anxiety while I've been engrossed in studying for the Life in the United Kingdom - A Journey to Citizenship test. I needed to pass this in order to apply for my 'settlement visa' to live, permanently, in the UK.
Most of my creative work, and frankly, most of my general sanity and inner-peace flew out the window while I filled my head with a random selection of facts about Britain and worried whether or not I would know enough of them to pass the test, which I did, I'm happy to report, yesterday.
I'm not sure how my mind took over so much the last few weeks, and it's pointless, really, to speculate. Regardless, today I am granting myself my own personal 'settlement visa' - permission for my mind to surrender and my spirit to renew so that I can, as we are all truly able to do in each moment - begin again.
