Immense appreciation for this moment

Last week I went on a short get-away with my husband for our 10 year wedding anniversary.  We went to a beautiful Airbnb in the redwoods.  It was so very sweet and so very silent.

I found myself in deep reflection.

Reflecting on our life together as a whole, our creation and our choices. Everything that had brought us to that moment at that exact time.

I could feel this immense appreciation for all the tough choices, for the times when I didn’t think it was going to work, for the differences, for the rough spots, for the things we didn’t have but wanted so badly.

I remember many years ago wanting to go on a retreat with Eckhart Tolle.  Retreating with remarkable inspirational people is something I have wanted for as long as I can remember and Eckhart Tolle has been a great influence in my life.I asked my husband if I could go even though I knew we didn’t have the money.

He turned to me and said, we do not have the money for that but I promise…someday soon you will be able to go. I was sad but I felt supportive by him and I knew that he was speaking the truth. And he was so right! I am currently on a retreat with a group of truly inspirational people.  I am embarking on a Mastermind Journey with 9 powerful wonderful women, something I have wanted for a very long time.  We are on retreat in San Francisco at Cavallo Point. The experience has been amazing. I have even realized my old wish and have been on retreat with Eckhart Tolle!

I have a deep appreciation for this moment.

I am realizing more and more that the tough times allow me to appreciate the good times that much more. These tough times honor where you have been and where you are headed.
