I don’t know how long I can do this, he said. I think the universe has different plans for me & we sat there in silence & I thought to myself that this is the thing we all come to & this is the thing we all fight & if we are lucky enough to lose, our lives become beautiful with mystery again & I sat there silent because that is not something that can be said.

some cool stuff you can get with this story...

    This is exactly where I am. I retired a year ago after 38 years as an educator (teacher then assistant principal) and have been experiencing quite a bit of angst about what I should do/be now. What a refreshing perspective to be able to see this change as a beautiful mystery instead of a dim future! I believe very strongly that God has new things for me. Just figuring out what they are is the adventure. Thanks for helping me see that in a new light!

    I bought this thinking it was conversation I could, should, would? have with my long time partner. Turns out many years after purchasing has a whole different meaning to me. I just had a huge loss in my life, followed by another loss and then a third loss.. all within a month, all were beings very dear to me. I guess you could say all of these losses altered my heart. I had an epiphany type dream one night I was in such deep grief, I told my long time partner about it, ( from above) then he puts this out for me to read. ..”This is the thing we all come to and this is the thing we all fight…
    and if we are lucky enough to lose, our lives become beautiful with mystery again”..well that morning my life had became beautiful with mystery again”, and I was not fighting anymore.

  3. It took me 50 years before I finally bought the monster of regret a drink. Now happy hour takes on a whole new meaning.
