DAY 144: MY OLD FAMILY IN A NEW WAY…..

I spent the entire day today with Seb, Dyl, Sasha, Gareth and my ex-husband Rupert. We were celebrating Seb and Dyl’s 23rd birthday at Citi Field with a make-up  Mets baseball game. It was a lovely, poignant, tender time. I actually wept a lot during the day, wiping the tears away from my eyes, pretty openly, mostly in gratitude for what is, but also a little bit for all that was lost.

Life is deep and rich and broken open; there are no stones left that I wish to overturn. I can lead from my recovered heart and believe in the steadfastness of some kind of quirky love that emanates out of the six of us when we are together. We are transformed as a family into something new, not so easily or completely understood, but new nevertheless and still expanding outward; expressing a sort of funky spirited hope that lights me up and invites me to believe even more fervently in a power much much greater than myself.

It’s not perfect, but it certainly is….. And for today, that is enough for me.

BIG THANK YOU to Seb, Dyl, Sasha, Gareth and Rupert!

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
