The Gifts of Endings
I've been a bit quieter than usual these last few weeks, as I step into some big transitions in my personal life. Now that things are more official, and I've had time to process, I'm feeling ready to share.
Nate and I went on a profoundly special journey together. We married, we became priests together, we started a business together, and we are still in training to become doctors together. We've gone through hard times while digging deep into our inner work, we've experienced profound inspiration, had incredibly meaningful spiritual experiences, and have learned so, so much together.
And now, our connection offers us a new gift: transitioning to friends.
Through our journey together, we discovered that the heart of our connection was about friendship, rather than about being a couple. We both saw it with such love and clarity, and while there has been grieving in this shift, there is also great appreciation and a sense of rightness in making this shift. And so, we are consciously un-coupling, and as we divorce, we are saying "I do" to a new journey together, as friends.
I am so incredibly thankful for these last 4+ years together. We absolutely were meant to be in each other's lives, to support each other, to trigger each other, to explore together, to each write books, to take the paths we've taken, to have the lessons we learned together. I wouldn't have changed a thing. I feel that our souls agreed to this adventure long ago, and that we really showed up for each other just how we were supposed to.
This experience has taught me so much about myself, powerfully inviting me to go deeper into my kindness, my wisdom, my independence, and my magic. And I couldn't have done it without him.
Nate, you are such a gift and blessing in my life, and I am so grateful for every part of our journey together.
You never know where life is going to lead you. This whole experience has taught me so much about surrender, trust, spaciousness, and allowing. Thank you, my dear friend.
