A Second Lesson: Turning Point

January 18, 2016

The major shift in my life happened in 2014.

every once in a while in your life you reach a decision point. a crossroad leading left or right. you can not look far enough to make the perfect step, but you have to decide anyways. is it left or right? or even turning back?From November 1st – December 26th, I was confronted with three personal losses that brought me to my knees. First, one of my best friends from high school, Nancy, died of a sudden heart attack. Six weeks later, on the night of December 16th, my beloved mother also died of a heart attack. Then ten days later, my former boss, a noted composer and dear friend, Shelly passed away.

The overwhelming grief sent me into a deep, dark hole.
It was such a devastating period. The only way I could cope was by reaching out – to grief counselors, friends, my rabbi, healing practitioners, my husband and sons. I even received spiritual visits in my dreams from my mother. Slowly, the darkness lifted.

That traumatic period taught me a major lesson: Appreciate every day. You can never get it back again. Treasure the people around you.

So I continue striving to live “consciously,” making the most of every day. It all comes down to the idea – how do we want to live each day? And what can we do to make this world a better place?
