I thought I would be retired by now, or dead.
At 63, I have been baptized in the raging (and I do mean rage-ing) river of resentment and tears that I have shed from this disappointment.
I have encountered many breakdowns and breakthroughs. I have sustained more than one divorce, now married to my true mate. I have spent the last 12 years grieving the loss of my best friend. Only when I began to reach out again and make new friends did I recognize that I had isolated myself. She was my angel of love, light and laughter. Now I wear a garland of angels around my heart. I am also emerging from a period that spans the past twenty years of deep inner reflection. It’s been like an archeological dig, uncovering and reframing past conditioning, decisions and choices I made that convinced me my heart’s desires to write and paint would never sustain me. I bring with me the treasures of my learning, understanding and wisdom.
As a spiritual guide and counselor for 30 years, I’ve always loved the power of words, their ability to ignite, inspire, liberate and heal. So many have asked me if I could write down what I have said or wished we had recorded our conversation. So here I am, after years of resisting my passion, I have surrendered. I am writing it all down.
With this blog, I wholeheartedly invite you to take a leap of faith and fall down this rabbit hole with me. Life after 60.
