As I sit here on my deck, under the luscious canopy of cedar, fir and big leaf maple trees, I’m compelled to share my deepest gratitude for not only this moment, but for the journey that has led me here today. Through a period of great difficulty that I was faced with to this day, where new love, stronger family and self love are predominant features in my life, I’m overwhelmed and amazed at the transition.
A few years ago, I didn’t realize how unhappy I was and looking back, I see it more clearly. Today, my daughter is happy and doing well, I have the most wonderful new partner that I love so deeply and fully, my mom is now up here with me and my relationship is growing with her. I have a new beautiful extended family and I have met so many new friends and amazing people along the way. I have meaningful employment, a home that is my sanctuary and a wonderful art studio. I couldn’t ask for more.
So, I encourage anyone who feels lost or unhappy, to believe in themselves and take risks to move beyond the numbness and pain. In order for beauty to come into our lives, we need to make room for it. We have to let go and have the courage to embrace love with everything we have. Wishing you all peace and love. – Tina
