A few days ago I flew to Ottawa to secure a home for Kenny and I and to register Kenny into a school. I was not aware that Ottawa's Canadian tulip festival was happening the same week. read more
In forty five days Kenny will be saying goodbye to friends, family members and the only community he knows. Inspite of all this my son is happy. Inspite of all this he is open to the move to Ottawa.
Embracing Brian's legacy for my son has been a great catalyst to further consider mine. By asking ourselves how we want to be remembered, what we stand for is a powerful way to live. It plants seeds for living our lives in a way that makes a difference.
I heard those words just when I needed them.
I am up early and treasuring this time to be with my thoughts and feelings.Loss has revealed everything that needs healing and attention. Even with what I know to be my mission, my priority is restorative, spiritual growth and space to be a present mom. This is a must.
Kenny and I are now back from our trip to Provence France and I am sitting here in gratitude of how much Kenny embraced traveling. He was an exceptional travel companion! And that makes my heart sing!
I was slipping back into my old ways... "It has been over a year, others will think I should be getting over "it" by now".
Last week I shared a blog on a couple of my own personal bold life decisions and Jacek wrote to me and shared how it inspired him to act.
“Kenny, you, your mom and I are going to get on a big plane and fly to Paris and from there we are going to ride in one of the fastest high speed trains in the world." Sharing this with Kenny was on Brian's bucket list. I know doing this upcoming trip without Brian will be hard.
Have you ever let go of experiences you value in pursuit of greater fulfillment?
In the midst of life's challenges there are blessings. Let in the whole truth.
One of the gifts emerging from this life changing experience is strengthening my ability to feel and accept my fears but not let them over power me.
Sometimes life happens and initiates radical change. Sometimes if we dare, we initiate radical change. On January 6th 2016, life happened. My life partner died suddenly. My life radically changed.
I am deeply saddened to share that my life partner of 18 years has left this physical world. He passed away suddenly on January 6th.
What if the only thing we need to do to create positive change in the world is to commit to our own personal healing?

After three of weeks of unplugging from social media I am looking forward to reconnecting with you and want to wish you, my valued online community a Happy New Year.
Profound sorrow, profound joy has been my reality since I suddenly lost my life partner and the father of my son. With loss there is an overwhelming experience of duality of emotions.
