My beautiful, imperfect journey continues…solo

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.

  1. I expected this post to be really sad and full of pain – despite seeing your lovely Facebook update – but it wasn’t. I’m so happy for you honey. I’m sure there is a drop of sadness in with all of the other emotions you’re feeling, but to see that all in all you’re still feeling so positive about this, that’s amazing.

    • Hi dear Karyn, thank you lovely, I have learned that the fear of pain is worse than pain itself. I am moving through it all, but I am not suffering. Lots of love to you! <3

  2. You are incredible, seriously. I was shocked to see this post… but then reading it was almost like healing the surprise myself. You are truly inspirational; how spiritually and honestly mature – I hope I can be like that if I am ever faced with such a situation.

    And you are beautiful – outside and inside – and you radiate light. Know that we’re all here for you if ever you need to chat, catch up, whatever. And know that you are blessed xx
