although the house is not yet finished of being packed and boxed away, i am ready, very ready to move forward. lately i have begun to realize how i no longer wish to live in the past, revisit it, look across my shoulder at it or watch the play back on my hearts screen. doing this will come with sacrifice since good things happened in the past too, yet for self preservation i must now not look in its direction until i learn to separate the good from the bad, without having to conjure up the slightest hint of things that have brought pain.
i am moving forward in the biggest of ways, i have no doubt some of what i write here at this very minute is again do to the emotional exhaustion but with up most certainty i am ready to except good things for myself and my family. so my dear readers i must take a pause for a few days, perhaps even a week or more so that i can close this final chapter of this book and begin to write on new paper with new ink, while preparing a home that will nurture those things that bring happiness, gratitude, solitude, awakening and growth.
i wish to see you again, as we begin our life in vermont.
dear readers, if you should need me at all, i am always available via email and will try to get back to you as soon as possible, for their will never be a time i wish not to be there for you.
