I admit it…

It’ been awhile. Have you wondered what happened to me?

I’m unpredictable, enigmatic, and always evolving. If any of my past relationships (men) are reading my blog, you can stop smiling now! I write sporadically, sometimes about topics that make you smile, shake your head, and check the post, wondering if I wrote it at all. “This is me,” as a dear friend of mine would say.

When you begin to understand me, I will do a 180 and you have to start all over again. It’s 2019. I rarely look backward, instead, I prefer to move on and live in the moment, moving towards the future. I have many amazing and beautiful things that happened in 2018, including taking back my emotional life and healing a very sad heart. Well, let me think about what I just said. I’m a woman. Do we ever truly heal our hearts? If we are open to love we will always be putting our hearts back together. So rather than look at 2018 let’s move right on into 2019!!

I have lived in Puerto Vallarta, on and off, since 2002. I fell in love with Mexico in the late 90’s. Many believe I moved here for a man. Let’s just say that I moved here out of love… a love that encompassed self-love, a lover, and a need to save my life rather than stay in a bad marriage and die a little each day.

And now the time has come to move on. I’m not saying I will never come back. But there are places to go and people to meet and stories to write and experiences to live, and love…yes, there will always be love.

I’m traveling first to the USA, then Paris to see my son and grandson, then I will visit India. I’ve never been before so if you have any places in India that touched your heart or spoke to your soul, please share them with me. After India I will spend a couple of days in Istanbul, and then I will have my birthday in Israel. First I will stay very close to the Wailing Wall, in the Arab Quarter in Jerusalem. Just writing this sends shivers up and down my spine. I’m drawn to the Holy Lands like many before me. I suppose my Catholic upbringing has a lot to do with that, but so does the life and death of IDZ, and the exploits of Samaar and Raven (operatives in my series, Code Raven– the first 3 are .99 cents).

After Israel I will go to Bangkok. From there I have absolutely no plans, but I will visit and possibly stay, in Bali. I will follow … my dreams.

Yesterday a friend of mine looked me in the eye and said, ‘You’re following your heart. You’re in love with him.” I objected profusely. “I’m in love with life, with travel, with places I’ve never been to and people I have yet to meet.” She raised her eyebrows and smiled. And then we both laughed.

Do I have a return ticket? No. I never look back and rarely go back, I always move forward. “But, will you come back to Mexico?”

“I always follow my heart.”

YOUR JOB IS TO
Trust your intuition, your gut, your heart.

Lets’ take that chance… on …. following our passion!
We must ignore the chatter in our head, the doubt, worry, judgment, and fear.

Your intuition is pushing you forward, dance, sing, follow your passion even while your chatter says, what if I fail? Your brain is designed to keep you safe, it’s logical, but your INTUITION is that spark of passion, love, desire, that “I want to leave my fingerprint on this planet!”
That desire is found in your gut; you “feel it here, and here and here…”

Your job is not to turn down the doubt but to turn up the passion, the faith, the possibility… Follow the plan…. the brain likes a plan, do the details, set the plan in place….

Turn down the volume in your head–your fear–and turn up the volume of your intuition. Follow your heart.

Make Big decisions with your heart/gut, and the small decisions with your head.

PLAY BIG.

DREAM A DREAM that MAKES YOU NERVOUS–3/5/10 years out.  IF IT DOESN’T MAKE YOU NERVOUS, IT’S NOT BIG ENOUGH! IF You know HOW you’re going to get there, you’re not playing big enough….
