Mistakes, Regrets and Blessings

Where to start?

I moved to Cyprus in May to start a better life, 6 months in and it turns out to be my biggest mistake. 😦

Too much has gone on but in a nutshell. Loui didn’t fare well with the flight, he was traumatised by it and it took him nearly two months to get over it., we had a heatwave not seen in 30yrs that killed two people. My feet and legs swelled for two months and I couldn’t walk. I witnessed a man burn in a house fire, he died a week later. Finding part time work here is impossible. I started fostering kittens for a charity in July and that’s been a journey in itself. Will try blog about that another time.  I’ve been ripped off several times and my family have not bothered to visit me at all.

Then the final straw was when my Loui got run over and has ended up paralysed. 😢

You can read the details here and there is a link at the bottom on there to a FB page for him where I update on his progress.



You might be wondering how in all of this can u find anything to be grateful for?

I have met some amazing people along the way, without them, I could have never got through any of it.

The outpouring of help and support with Loui has been astounding. My friends in the UK have all contributed to Louis vet bills and check up on me most days to see how I am coping. People who I’ve only known as a name on FB have been so supportive too, not just financially but more importantly  (to me) with their prayers, positive words, advice and love.

To say I’m grateful doesn’t even cover it. Since being here I’ve been thrust into a deeper solitude than I had in UK because here I don’t have the beautiful countryside around me where we went daily to connect with nature and my many spirit allies there.

When you feel all alone and all these wonderful souls reach out to you, you realise that when you hit rock bottom there are people out there to break your fall.

That there are still genuinely caring people left on the world. It gives me hope, not just for me and my situation but for the human race as a whole.

Now my dilemma is do I stay or do I go?

Once Loui is healed I will decide but for now I’m just trying to get by each day as it comes.

Please hold us in your thoughts and hold the vision of Loui walking and healthy again.

Thank you. ❤

  1. Maria,

    It was literally only a few days ago I was talking about you to my partner. You have crossed my mind many, many times and I’ve wondered how you were.

    I am absolutely shocked and gob smacked at your journey so far.

    I’m sorry to hear about Loui and I pray he makes a full recovery.

    It sounds like a horrific time so far. Part of me wants to tell you to come back home but then the other half says it’s must be the biggest test you’ve faced so far in life.

    Trust your instincts they will guide you to your path.

    If you need any help or support please let me know how I can help.

    Thinking of you my dear friend, Love Sabina xxxx

  2. You have been through much in the last year and been tested and tried too.
    About visitors you must remember, that it was your choice to leave, no matter your reasons.
    Believe me, I have been through the same and recognized much too.
    You need to find your own way and jobs are difficult for you to take care of now, when Loui can’t stay alone at home. He needs your help to live.
    All is about choices, wish you all good luck, dear friend.

  3. I’m so sorry to hear about the struggles you’ve faced, and continue to face. I have been thinking about you a lot these past two months, wondering how things were going for you. Now I know…

    Holding you and Loui close to my heart, envisioning health and happiness returning in abundance! ❤

    • Thank you Lisa. I apologise for not keeping up on here with posts etc. I didn’t have internet bot a couple of months and had over 300 notifications when I got on besides actual mail so I just deleted everything. Then with every thing else I’ve just not really been in the mood to check anything. I don’t get notifications on my phone either, other than replies to my posts. It’s been taxing. I miss you all. Thank you for your kind words. I will try get to some posts in the next few days. Much love to you and yours. ❤ xxx

      • No pressure, Maria. We are all coping as we must. I have also fallen way behind on here, frequently posting something and then not checking back for a week or so. I have stopped “punishing” myself for this. Daily existence has become a moment by moment trial, and I honor my Self by letting it lead me where, and when, I need to be, with as few apologies as I can live with. Lol! Just want you to know you are not forgotten, and my heart and mind frequently reach for a passing contact; that is all. Much love to you on your journey today, as always!

    • Thanks Helen. It’s all over Fb. I invited you to his page too. Thank you for doing the Puja for us, yes am free Sunday, can’t leave the house unless someone visits and I can nip to the shop. To be honest I’m OK, was a mess for three weeks but I’m quite calm and just getting on with it. My main concern is what I’m going to do in April when Tasha gets married because there isn’t anyone here to look after him for a week, not now anyway. I’m thinking Bout going back to UK with him. Lot to think about. Blessings to you xx

  5. So sorry to hear this Maria, and so pleased you stopped by to press a few likes on my blog or I wouldn’t have known you had posted as I have not been as good at catching up recently only with regular comments..
    So I was so sorry to hear things had not gone well, And poor Louis was injured and so traumatised in the beginning and you also not well..
    Thank goodness you have had some support around you through all of this.. And of course I will send healing, adding you both in my healing book of prayers Maria..
    Sending my prayers.. Love and Blessings..
    Sue ❤
