I didn’t predict that in the time since my last post I would become a single woman, but then, how could I?
I haven’t predicted anything that has happened on this journey which is what makes it so astounding to me.
So, here I am.
Just over a week ago, Tyrhone flew to the UK and two days before that, we decided to go our separate ways. Those of you who are connected with me on Facebook may have read my update:
“Today I celebrate my time with this guy. We never, EVER did things by the book and our decision to part ways is no exception. We are doing it with love, gratitude and a healthy dose of sadness. What an amazing journey we have had together for the last 9 1/2 years. We are unrecognizeable from the young, messed up kids we were. We are more whole people thanks to each other, and move forward on our individual journeys richer than we thought possible for ourselves. Soul mates come in all forms, and he has definitely been mine. Safe travels in Europe and beyond, Tyrhone, and stay colourful!”
I cannot thank you all enough for your words of encouragement and support to both of us.
I’m feeling particularly blessed right now, humbled and touched by the communities, both online and in person that I am part of.
Ours was an amazing journey. We are both deeply grateful for our time together and the way we helped heal and develop each other.
In fact, we both grew so much during our relationship that we learned what we truly wanted out of life – they just happened to be different things.
What a blessing it now is, all these years, countries and lessons later, to be whole and free enough to follow our hearts, even when it means saying goodbye to each other.
Ours was a sacred soul contract; one which saved my life. I’ll never forget it or not be grateful for it.
We parted in the most beautiful way – full of love and respect and gratitude – and I’m allowing my heart to absorb it all; the joy, the pain and the blessings.
I’m staying on in Playa where I belong for now.
I’m surrounded by so much love, community and support I can hardly believe it. I never thought my life would look like this or more importantly, feel like this.
And while it’s a process – one which I am walking one day at a time – I have never felt the beauty of my imperfect journey more keenly.
Wishing you all a beautiful festive season from Mexico – I am truly grateful for you all.

There are still places available for my ‘Journey to Shine’ retreat on Isla Holbox next April. I’d love to meet you and share this week of connection in paradise.
