    Your blog posts and life path so often parallel my own. This one is right on time, as my husband and I are in the midst of deep truth-telling work. Thank you so much for articulating the process as we search for the light.

    Your words of wisdom far transcend the truth. You are your own truth and so eloquently shared. Thank you!
    I went through a very dark year and through frustration, fear, anger and pain I arrived to now. We need to breath and know we only have this moment in time!

  4. Sarah says:

    Thank you. Facing hard choices to do with work and home life these truths are so valuable. Be true to oneself, I think you are saying. Lovely words.

    The past can’t be outrun or hid from. You have to allow it to catch you. Muster up the courage and skill to lower your arms and become fully vulnerable to the punches from your past, or at least become vulnerable to the way the present is hitting you.  The journey you hoped was that you could change the past, sweep it under the rug. The hope you want is that the past will wisen you to not repeat it in the present. You heart won’t take that anymore. That is transformation. Transformation happens when you see the lessons of the past living in the present. It develops in you as a result of your journey. Transformation happens after you walk the trails to their bitter end. When all your thoughts and distractions fail to clear the path. Every trick of your old perspective fails to move you another inch. Sweeping all this under the rug becomes impossible, and that is the moment you surrender to the true you. The trail of life you constructed has now become the maze you needed in order to transform yourself.

      I agree, Jonathan, that transformation starts when the heart steps in and says, “No, no more of this.” I also really like what you said about our thoughts and distractions no longer clearing the path. Thank you for sharing your perspective, and all my best to you as you navigate the maze.

    Wow what a great posting. It was exactly what I needed to read and hear reverberating in my head. It’s very powerful. Thanks for sharing your truth…it rings true for me as well and I just recently have discovered that it’s very dirty under my rug! It is difficult yet powerful when you open up your heart and are willing to truly look at and take responsibility for your own happiness instead of waiting for others to behave a certain way to make you happy.
    Thank you all.

    • Beth says:

      Thank you, Coleen. I wholeheartedly agree with you on this one:

      “It is difficult yet powerful when you open up your heart and are willing to truly look at and take responsibility for your own happiness instead of waiting for others to behave a certain way to make you happy.”

      Blessings to you as you face the world with an open heart. Such a gift to so many.

    I was just reading through your old blog posts and got a glimpse out of the corner of my screen that one of your favorite blogs is Clean. You, Beth, and Rachel (lusasorganics Clean.) are so much of an inspiration!
    Sending lots and lots of love and light to you and your family from California!
    Happy thanksgiving. (And thank you, so much.)
    Love, Sage.

    I just happened upon your blog because of an article a friend posted. I just read this one and it’s as if you read what’s in my head…but I’ve been afraid to admit to MYSELF that I am tired. Beyond tired. Yet I still shove my heart aside and operate in daily numbness. Yep, that’s what it is: numbness. The only time I am not numb is with my child. But with my spouse (whom I’ve been calling roommate for more than a year)…I feel nothing. I am afraid to admit “this isn’t working.” It seems like failure and I can’t face that…not yet. But I have to one day.
