This transition — in my life, not between paragraphs — is emotional, tumultuous, intellectual, challenging, and necessary. I can't imagine anyone would ever choose to change her life so dramatically if the survival of her soul didn't depend on it.
A warm, sunny week at a beautiful, isolated resort near Cabo San Lucas in Baja California del Sur, Mexico, with my best friend, was healing. If you're ready for a couple of transformative books, I highly recommend A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle and The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron, in that order. And if you're on an emotional roller coaster, keep a journal. Dear Diary... you remember how to do it. No one ever has to see what you write — you don't even have to reread it — heck, burn it! But the act of writing down your feelings, observations — whatever comes out, clarifies and distills the contents of your heart and mind. Very helpful. Just sayin'.
Now I'm back in my so-called real life, wading through mud, but making progress nonetheless. Living with love... that's all I can do.
