There is no user manual for life. No guidelines or rules about how you are supposed to feel when the life you thought you would have is over.

I turned 47 a few days ago. After 18 months of intense therapy and struggle to find my lost self, I am discovering the person that I knew when I was younger. Fearless, determined, and confident.

When you can forgive both another and yourself you move from the law of karma (action and reaction) into the law of grace (resolution) – that effulgent state that transmutes and heals. – W Brugh Joy
