Have you ever felt all alone in a crowded waiting room or other public place? You know you are surrounded by people and yet, maybe you realize inside you are feeling isolated, or lonely, or forgotten…lost in your own thoughts. What do YOU instinctively do in those situations?
How does one begin to heal when their heart feels broken by another? Perhaps it was an intentional choice initiated from them and yet, it felt cruel and unexpected to you? Maybe you never saw it coming. Maybe when you finally did see it coming you then contributed in some way to the entire miserable experience too. Now what?
For many reasons it has been awhile since I last wrote. I woke up the morning of September 1, 2017 from a dream about writing in my blog on “acceptance”.

Happy Monday! It’s officially Spring, and everything is budding with new life! That includes me, and the launching of my new website!
I believe new beginnings can be a bit overwhelming...such as when I am venturing into a new phase of my life or exploring a new path I have never tried before. I don’t think of myself as particularly adventurous, however, I am able to recognize the situations when I feel called to take a leap of faith and trust! I know when I just have to take a deep breath and take the next step…and the next one…
One of the most profound things I have learned through this process is trusting – myself, and those that God brings into my life to help me. I have found myself learning so much with each new step. I gain the confidence to believe I am on the right path, even if I don’t know exactly where it is leading me...
Aristotle said: “What we learn to do we learn by doing.” I agree! Everything I have ever learned to do in my life, I learned by doing! Thanks to all those who have been my teachers and helped me to get this far! You know who you are.
