I've been on the other side of where I am today
The side of desperately looking for those elusive things called inner peace, happiness, and true love.
Looking for answers in books, stories told by serendipitous strangers, deep philosophical quotes, lyrically rich songs. Relationships with men, get-me-out-of-here plane tickets, meditation loops, yoga taught by old wise women, courses on clearing blockages, chakras, and meridians. Superfoods for this, juices for that, and cleanses that do it all. Retreats to the sea, Ayahuasca in the mountains, Kambo in a stranger’s home. And even shallow articles promising to make a man fall in love with four words” (or was it six?!).
I’ve prayed to Gods and Goddesses, the Universe, Buddha, the man in the moon, angels, energy healers, and even Oprah. The list could go on and on. You name it … I’ve likely laughed at myself for trying it!
