I am still in awe that I have actually finished this project. It seems like so long ago that I made the decision to share my story in a format other than blog posts. I’ve stated from the very beginning of my new journey that my soul purpose is to be a source for other’s like me who have survived a loss, and that statement remains true today.
I wanted to be creative when sharing my story and still cling to the idea of the butterfly. I sought out and researched all the stages a caterpillar goes through when making its change into the butterfly. In, Out of the Chrysalis: Free to Fly, I compare those stages to the those of loss that we as humans go through on our journey towards transformation.
As this is the very first book I have written, I really had no concept of how long it would take, but never did I dream it would be two years later before it was completed. Then one day it hit me, that I couldn’t finish it any sooner because I was living the experiences that I needed to share. The book is complete, and I am living through my transformation, preparing for that day when I will be ready and free to fly.
I am confident that I have reached my goal of providing a guiding source for anyone grieving a loss in an uplifting compassionate way. I look forward to starting on my next project with the same goal in mind.
I am grateful and thankful to all who is reading and sharing my story, may your journey towards healing be full of wonder and surprise as mine has been.
