To say I experienced a crisis in my life in the past 6 years would be an understatement. The marriage my life revolved around came to an unexpected, shocking, and devastating end. The details of how and why that happened are far from pretty. In fact, many of them are downright ugly. The ugliest have been processed through counselling, for which I will always be grateful.
So how can there be a beautiful whole to this story?
It is continually amazing to me that this truth exists.
This ugly and painful experience in my life has allowed for the most beautiful changes and the most exquisite experiences.
The beautiful whole FAR outweighs the ugly pieces. And the ugly pieces have now become an essential part of the beautiful whole. The beauty cannot exist without them. It is amazing to me.
It is my intention in all of my life, including my writing, to focus on the beauty. I hope that enhances the beauty I can bring to those around me.
