Our journeys here on earth are changing and evolving all of the time.
In the photos shown here, my daughter, Abby is with me as a baby and then on her second birthday. She will soon be 31 years old in May and in a few days, moving to the island of Kauai.
Abby left home to go to Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida in 2002, and ended up in NYC for graduate school. She came home to visit of course many times and I went to visit her.
Last year, in May of 2014 Abby came back here, to stay with me on and off, as her home base for the last 11 months. It has been such a pleasure to have her with me again, and of course I knew it wouldn’t be for very long. The times we’ve spent cooking, eating dinners together and communicating as adults, living in the same home again, will remain in my heart and memories, as they will Abby’s.
I’m feeling lots of emotions right now as I write this. I am thrilled for what is next on Abby’s journey, and once again, as her mom, I need to put my emotions into perspective. I am crying as I write this, knowing it will be only a couple times a year or so, that I will get to spend time with her again. Yet this is as it is meant to be, her journey is moving on to what her soul has been asking for. And this makes me deeply grateful to see her joy and excitement for what lies ahead for her.
I am embarking on new things on my journey at almost 60 years old, that I’m extremely excited about too. I am creating some new programs for my coaching business and one of them is to host my first retreat in Kauai this fall, October 7-14, 2015.
I will get to spend time with Abby in Kauai while hosting my retreat. She will be helping Adrian with the retreats he helps put together as his business, as founder and owner of Kalewa Kauai.
My journey and Abby’s journey’s will continue to move us forward into the people we are meant to be here on earth.
I must let go with much love, trusting Abby and I are both on our journey’s and change is just what is necessary for both of us right now.
What changes are in store for your journey this year?

With many blessings,
