Coincidence? Not a chance!
May 28, 2010

Things happen for a reason. I headed out this morning all prepared to Zumba, my new, fun exercise class. The place was dark. Reason? It’s Friday. Who knew? I totally was thinking it was Thursday. Still adjusting to the Summer schedule.

Anyway, there was another lady sitting there. She had arrived at the wrong time for her Pilates class–dark studio. I began the small talk and turns out we know each other. I had read in the paper recently about the untimely death of her husband–a path I too have walked. I plopped down on the floor across from her. She shared her story, I mine. An hour soon passed and the questions flowed.

“When did you feel . . . better?”
“What did you do with his clothes? How soon?”
“How did this work?”
“What did you do about that?”
“When did you cry?”
“Did he send you signs?”

There we sat, two women right place, right time, sharing life and one of its biggest hurdles. I do not believe that was a coincidence. We were brought together for a reason and by whom? I think I know.

The Universe is guiding me on an incredible adventure: my Plan B. I write here to share bits of my Odyssey, hopefully to inspire, encourage, or extend the virtual hand of friendship.

When I quit teaching in 2014, I could never have imagined the growth I would experience through travel, writing, reading, therapy, and introspection.

I believe human connection and compassion will go a long way toward our healing, and the best way to connect and feel compassion for one another is through the sharing of our stories.

Thank you for joining me here. I appreciate you and may we grow together.
