To those who care,
I'm feeling so peaceful, free and happy as of late, and I am incredibly grateful for every moment that the light outweighs the darkness. I take nothing for granted.
I'm grateful for all the beautiful souls whose love lifted me beyond the pain of my recent depression. It helped me return to my "muchness" as my friend, Maryanne, calls it. I'm especially grateful for technology (Facebook specifically) because it allowed me to reach out during my struggle and to receive the support I needed to make it through.
An added bonus is that my candid posts resonated with many of my followers who also experience a similar struggle (read When The Miracle Arrives to witness one reader's shift in perspective), so all in all, it was a worthy adventure with a happy ending.
I've been back on track for over two weeks now, and I want to thank each of you for all the ways you contributed to my healing, my remembering, and my decision to keep going. I would not be here without the immense love I was bathed in.
Depressions come and go for many of us, but they are not who we are. They are indicators that something important needs healing before we can cross the next threshold, and they are clear calls from our authentic selves to expand beyond our current perceived limitations.
With every visit to hell, I create a more secure heaven. In the process of transmuting my pain into wisdom, I become that much more aligned with who I truly am. Another lie or another fear dissolves, and my light shines infinitely brighter.
Here's to shining bright.
All my love,
DO I ADD LIGHT & INSPIRATION TO YOUR DAY?
