I am learning to listen to my feelings, so I can stay open, and be guided by my heart.
This is a practice, and I’ve been working on it for a very long time.
Now, when I am feeling fearful, I can look beyond my fears, and see that they are mostly unfounded.
Obviously, I’m the sole parent, and I am responsible for my two precious daughters, but as I near the first year anniversary of my husband’s death, I am feeling more optimistic, grounded and trusting.
Being a sailor, and an entrepreneur, and a person in the world in general, is not without risks.
But, regardless of my fear, I can only sit on the sidelines for so long. Because of that, and many other factors, I am finally stepping onto my first sailboat since my husband died last July.
It’s astonishing to me, that I gave up something I loved so dearly for so long, but I did.
On Saturday, you will find me, again on the race Committee Boat, in the San Francisco Bay.
And my heart, not as broken as it once was, is truly becoming the guidance system of my life.
Love and Blessings.
