Making-Healthy-Choices e-Zine #025 - Why I've been Gone for 2 Months
October 04, 2013
In this month's e-Zine...
Where Have I Been for 2 Months
I apologize for being absent from sending out these e-zines for the past 2 months. And I want to take some time today to explain to you why I have been absent from adding content to the website, making posts on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest and sending out these monthly letters to you.
At the beginning of August my beautiful beautiful Mother-in-law began the process of preparing to pass. I always look to my elders for teachings about life and this wonderful woman reminded me much of how to live with a positive, loving and forgiving attitude. And, in her passing she continues to teach me. She went through the process of dying with amazing grace (and aptly we chose the song Amazing Grace to play during her funeral). For as long as I am here I will be grateful for and embracing what she taught me about how to live well and how to die well.
We spent more than a month away from home with her and with our family and no matter what else happens to me in this lifetime, those last moments with her will remain one of the most tender and amazing times of my life.
Lessons, Reminders and Awakenings from this time:
Once we returned to our home we had just 2 weeks left to pack up our entire life, put things in storage, move out of our apartment, get our backpacks ready, John to finish his last days at his job and to catch our plane...
Leaving 9-5 Behind - Where are We Now
When one works 40+ hours a week there isn't much time left to concentrate on your personal passions, life goals … your life purpose.
John and I decided to break from this more scheduled type of life and to do things more on our own schedule.
I have been travelling and living this way since 1996 when I first left Canada to move to Japan. And now together with John we have just landed in Thailand.
These first few days have been all about decompressing, processing and resting after those last couple of very busy months (busy on a physical and emotional level). As we move forward we look forward to taking things one day at a time and enjoying every single moment.
I plan to share much more about exactly how we manage to do this type of life and, in the meantime, please check out the page I just wrote about WHY I TRAVEL.
Looking Forward to the FGW Retreat and My Detox Webinar
The 2013 Finding the Guru Within (FGW) retreat is almost here! In just a few days, John and I will make our way from Bangkok to the northern region of Thailand called Chiang Mai where, together with Earl Talbot, I will be facilitating people through their FGW retreat experience.
I have been honored to be a part of facilitating this retreat in the past and it is truly a life changing week for those that attend.
We will do a 3.5 day detox away from solid food to give our bodies a chance to physically, spiritually and emotionally detox before diving deeper into our own thought patterns and belief systems. I am so excited about this upcoming week! This is the stuff that life is about - truly and authentically connecting with yourself, others and the world around you!
If this type of thing interests you, we would love to have you join us on our next retreat.
Also if you are interested or have questions about detox, I warmly invite you to have a listen to this free DETOX WEBINAR that I recently did with Jon Gabriel.
Dream big everyone … and never underestimate the power you possess to turn your dreams into your reality!!
