True Stories of Love, Dating and Other Misadventures
Meet Tracy. She tells a moving story of how she had to destroy her life in order to save it and (possibly) her husband’s life as well.
Tracy lost just about every material possession but the most devastating loss was leaving her dogs behind. She’s still grieving, and probably always will to some degree, but she’s filled a bit of the hole in her heart with some feline love. Here are her cats, Clovis and Bubbles. Tracy says she’s hoping the cats are not a “starter kit” for her new single status.
Tracy discusses journaling and ten questions she asks herself at the start of each new year. Here are those ten questions:
- What accomplishments did I achieve from last year’s goals? What is still in progress? Will these matter in 5 years?
- What tasks am I using to procrastinate? What am I avoiding How can I do better?
- What lessons have I learned? What habits do I need to release?
- How am I treating my heart, body and soul?
- Am I being kind, and of value to others? Who do I need to forgive? Have I been unfair to anyone? Have I kept a loving and compassionate heart? How can I be kinder?
- What new habit do I want to cultivate?
- Where is it time in my life to let go?
- Do my physical surroundings reflect who I am authentically?
- What am I passionate about?
- If I died tomorrow, what would I regret?
Tracy wanted me to mention that although she’s fine with giving up a big portion of her pension to her ex-husband, she’d like to remind everyone that since she earned .78 on the dollar, she wishes she were giving up that same percentage.
Tracy’s permanent reminder to always seek joy in her new beginning.
