I sent a call out this week for metaphorical doulas… stories, kind words of support and encouragement to help me across this incredibly hard threshold in my life. I am so honored and blown away by your responses – your blog comments, your wisdom, your love-soaked emails. Oh my goodness. Thank you.
You burst my heart wide open.
And I cried for the rest of the day. Not out of fear or sadness, but out of the pure joy of being connected.
Thank you for you reflecting my spirit back to me.
Thank you for reminding me of all the kindness + goodness in the world.
Thank you for the understanding that we are never alone in whatever we are going through- that we are all just walking each other home.
An unexpected serendipity happened that day as well.
One of my oldest friends (who I consider part of my soul family) immediately called when he saw the post in his inbox. I burst into tears as I answered the phone (we haven’t seen each other for almost 10 years) and it happened that he was flying into SF the next morning.
We met the next day for lunch and as I sat down, he placed the following pieces of paper in front of me:
There were a few more pages… and he instructed me to check all the boxes that felt right to me.
It was one of the kindest possible things.
Big heart-full of love thank you to all of you for being a part of my community. I am wowed by you and feel so grateful for each and every one of you.
P.S. You will be getting another missive from me today with a video describing my upcoming class – Into the Mystic. Excited to share that with you!
