2014, Letting Go…

…of Angel, my sweet desert cat, two mortgages and the responsibility of two homes, two teeth, decades of acquired “stuff”; one entire household’s worth. I let go of the pain of losing a good marriage gone horribly wrong. I quit my steady job, and I let go of my lover. I cut off my hair. I changed where I live and what I drive…

…and I started to travel. I traveled a lot. I started the year in London with the trip of a lifetime surrounded by my three inspiring children, my trifecta. I played at the beach and in the desert with all of my cousins and their kids. Twice. I spent time in Austin and with my Aunt and Uncle before they passed, 6 weeks apart from each other. I indulged my senses and laughed with good friends in Portland. I hiked, cooked, and rafted my way through Southern Oregon, Northern California, the McKenzie River valley, and the backroads of Homer, reawakening connections with cherished friends. I took my first solo trip ever, to Alaska, fulfilling a desire for more than three decades…

…I let go of historic friendships and began to forge new ones. I discovered new ones that were old ones, in Homer.  I felt untethered and connected both, at the same time. I slowly, yet consistently became filled with awe once again.

I have so much to look forward to in 2015! I am excited about the possibilities that will emerge as I walk the path of each glorious day. I look forward with appreciation to embracing all that passes my view. I will continue to let go of expectation and simply be. I look forward to finding my voice again, to singing, and learning to play guitar, and to learning Spanish, finally. I look forward to letting go of shame, stepping fully into who I am. I am excited to give back to the world; to find meaning and contribute in unselfish ways. I can’t wait to meet my Grandson, and bear witness as he begins to open his eyes of wonder….
