May 31, 2002 - It was today 11 years ago when I met the love of my life for the first time. It seems appropriate to be writing this blog today as I look back, not on the last 11 years but the last three months of my life.
'Be careful what you wish for'. I have never taken these words so literally as I have the last few months. I had created this AMAZING life filled with passion and service towards others. I was truly happy. Then I decided to drift off my path (once again) and found myself in a space that was filled with negativity and pain. My emotional self was suffering, my body was shutting down. I kept repeating to myself "I can't do this anymore". The universe took me seriously and got me out of that situation by literally taking everything away. At first I was shocked. How could this be happening?, I thought. Now however, I know it was for the best.
In the fall of 2010 I made a similar decision in drifting away from my purpose, becoming misaligned with life itself. I continued down that road because I was desperate to be loved, truly loved, and the one I ran to made me feel that way. I ended up paying the ultimate price. I have learned so much in the last few years and this last chapter has been both incredible and extremely painful. I can't think of when I was more happy than moments of this last year, but I also cried more tears than I have in my entire life. I do know it's all part of the journey and I have grown so much in the process.
I begin yet another chapter now and so excited about what lies ahead. I know in my heart I am now back on the right path. I love to write and create through my art and I want so much to support others to find joy through their passions. That 18-month journey from November, 2010 - April, 2012 is now being revisited in the pages of my next book, It's Simply Serendipity: Four Steps to Manifesting a Life of Bliss. Beginning next week I will be writing a weekly blog with passages from the book. I invite you to come along on this journey that truly has made me into the person I am today, the person I was meant to be. I feel so very blessed for ALL of it.
