living in the light of a new day

It’s been a dark few months, just when I thought things couldn’t get much darker – but I finally feel like I can feel some light radiating outwards again. The pain of loss will always be with me – its life altering, but not life taking. If there is one thing it has to teach me, it’s that I must not waste such a precious thing.

I’m not sure if this can be viewed as the blogger equivalent of cutting off your hair during a rough time, but i’ve deleted absolutely everything here and i’m starting again. I feel like it is needed. I will probably republish a few things at some point, but for now, I just need a fresh start in order to move forward. It will take a little while to take shape but i’m doing my best to be okay with imperfection.

Anyway, I just wanted to break the silence. I’ll end this post with a quote I read recently that inspired me by Debbie Ford –

To live in the light of a new day and an unimaginable and unpredictable future, you must become fully present to a deeper truth—not a truth from your head, but a truth from your heart; not a truth from your ego, but a truth from the highest source. You have to be willing to be deeply honest with yourself about the shape your life is in each day. To be honest about the good and the bad, about what works and what doesn’t, so that you can live in accordance with your highest self. When you fail to tell the truth, you are kept bound to the past in ways that devastate your soul. The depth of your truth will, in fact, dictate where you can go, what you can have, what you can experience and what you can enjoy.
