Sometimes, after going through something extremely unpleasant, the ordeal can end up being a turning point in one’s life.
Letting go of the past, letting go of our safety net, letting go of things no longer serving us can be scary. It’s a venture into the unknown.
We can fluctuate back and forth, creating doubt, excitement, fear.

But if we just make a commitment every day to just show up, breathe, meditate, reach out for help, whatever works, little insights start to come to light. Ideas take root. Things start to make sense and the dawning of a new day no longer appears untenable.
Change can be hard and unfortunately sometimes a calamity is what helped us see and give clarity to our life and the changes needed in going forward.
When synchronicities start to appear, connections are made and little miracles take shape, it’s life affirming and can help the process go more smooth.
