Thank you very much for your support, Shubha! I didn’t realize this piece would resonate with so many people when I posted it, but your comment did inspire me to look into submitting to the Huffington Post. Unfortunately, it seems that they only take pieces that haven’t already been published elsewhere — so, too late on this one. Maybe in the future though, I can try there.

I’m glad to hear you feel so content with where you are in life too! To be honest, learning this lesson for me was a matter of hindsight… but I have felt fortunate in the wake of the epiphany all the same, and it makes periods of solitude in the now feel all the more empowering and “full.”

Love, sex, dreams, soul, adventure, healing, feeling. I kinda experience life as magical. Memoir is my jam.
