Big News

I haven’t written words to share because I keep waiting for when I have BIG NEWS. I just realized all the little things that are happening are the big news. Profound, amazing things are happening. I don’t know what the heck I’m waiting for.

I often remind myself I’m doing what I was born to do. A concept and a phrase I took from astrologer and columnist Rob Brezsny. In a 2007 horoscope for the Aries people, he asked “How long are you going to wait before you get around to being completely committed to what you were born to do?”

As far as I can figure I was born to be with people. To see people and hear them. And to share with them what I know. Most importantly, I know love goes on forever and death is not the end.

Publishing Everything You’ve Ever Done has helped me on this path. I’m connecting with the people! The book is a connecting thread. It’s a bridge.

The book has started a dialog. Readers have reached out to me to say they heard me and now want to be heard. I’m learning the stories of my readers. And these are the most beautiful heart-swelling encounters. People are saying: I read your despair; I read your truth; I read your darkest hour. Now listen to mine. Listen to my loss. Listen to what I’ve found.

And I’m reminded: We’re not in this alone. We’re all connected. We are one. And we share the same pain. Our gift to one another is pushing through it and telling our stories. Being seen by others eases our pain and validates our suffering. And from our connections we feel joy and gratitude.

I offer my deepest thanks to those who have read Everything You’ve Ever Done and have been inspired to share their stories with me.
