As many of you are aware and for those who are new here, my first book is about to be released sometime this month. Needless to say, I am very excited about it and can’t wait to share it with all of you! My book is about how I coped during my divorce and most difficult time of my life while trying to keep a positive outlook, how I found healthy ways of surviving and the life lessons I learned along the way.
Life’s challenges can help us see both sides of the coin and recently, through a friend, I discovered there’s a third side as well which is the edge. In this sense, each side can represent each person’s point of view, their thoughts, feelings, and perceptions of what happened. On the other hand, the edge is considered the sacred space or truth of who you really are at your core. It’s a detachment from either side, a neutral zone, an understanding, place of forgiveness, a new perspective and even a place of acceptance of what is.
The edge is enlightenment for yourself. It’s your own truth.
When you stand and live on the edge you are without judgment of another person and you’re not being one-sided. When choosing the middle path, you choose to be open-minded with an open heart. You’re able to see both sides clearly and feel free while doing so.
The third side of the coin can equal balance because you are no longer leaning to one side. Instead, when you stand balanced on the edge, it creates inner peace and happiness for yourself and when you feel ready to let go of the right of being right, that’s when your soul grows and you learn the life lessons you were meant to learn. Maybe it’s possible that both sides are right? Consider this, on the edge of reality, are the motivations that run deeper than both points of view.
The edge is the place where I wrote my book from while I reflected on where I went wrong in my life, what I learned along the way and found ways to see the silver linings. It’s scary living on the edge because it requires both courage and vulnerability to admit you were wrong at times and that nobody is perfect. At the same time, it’s the place that sets you free and is very healing.
I’m living proof of that.
For the past month, I have been living on the edge in India again, visiting my awesome friends and I attended two exciting weddings there. I will have a new blog saga coming up titled This Is India 2017 and I look forward to sharing my experiences with all of you.
Be safe, stay blessed and try living on the edge.
Much Love and Gratitude ❤
