Death and Rebirth


cloudThis birthday is about a death and a rebirth. It’s about the realization of the death of the Wisconsin me, and the rebirth of the Arizona me. It's about mourning 'me' and celebrating the rebirth of 'me' all at the same time.


I have known for a long time that this was going to be a pivotal time in my life and I know that leaving WI and my friends and family was going to be difficult to do. Some days have been very difficult. There has been much excitement and adventure too.


I’ve had people tell me I’m going through a transformation. Yes, yes, yes. I know, that all makes sense. I’m leaving WI, moving to AZ. I get it. From a logical standpoint, I get it. It all makes “logical” sense.


Today, I really heard it, I think for the first time. This is all about me. This is about my rebirth. Moving to AZ, I’m alone. Not lonely, just alone. And yes, I do have lots of supportive friends (thank you!!) who I so appreciate! 


But there is a going deep within, that you can only really do alone. Looking into your very essence. And that's what this time has been for me, what this time is for me now.


Now is the time for me. Now is the time for me to shine my light.


Someone said to me the other day, you can be whoever you want to be. That is absolutely correct. I can be whoever I want to be. 


And who I want to be, is me.


Angel Blessings to you.

    This rings so many bells with me. I did a similar leap away from friends, family and all that was familiar in 1999.It has been an amazing journey, not always as expected or promised,but I know myself better now than ever before, and in spite of the challenges, I have no regrets. I could not have been so alone with myself if I had not done this – it was so necessary (non-negotiable on a soul level). I wish you all the love in the world on your journey. Vicki xx

      Thank you so much for the comment and the words of encouragement. Each day gets easier. I’ve had another realization too that in letting go of the tight grip on where I came from, I can allow more to come in the new location. 🙂
