"Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you." Yes, Alanis, it sure does. Like rain on your wedding day.
As many readers know, I wrote a book called Five Reasons Why Bad Things Happen. I quite literally "wrote the book" on things happening for a reason. So I know my most recent setbacks are happening for a reason. I just need to figure out what they are, learn the lessons, make the required changes and move forward.
My first question is: Why would my body rebel against living here? The weather is divine, the air so fresh and clean it's life-affirming and the views are awe-inspiring. In two months I've lived here I've become leaner and more accepting of my natural looks. (I love how so many women here eschew makeup and so many men let their hair and beards grow!) So why would "she" (my body) decide to "act up?"
I'll get back to you on that one.
In the meantime, I need to go step-by-step through the healing process – both through medical means as well as internal and spiritual solutions.
I also need to pursue the lessons that are springing forth from these experiences (because there always are!)
