In 2012 I took the leap of faith that we find is the entire message behind the first card in the Major Aracana. I left my corporate career to follow the dreams my heart and spirit had sang to me for so long. It was exciting, scary and the most rewarding thing I have ever done. I curated a digital art show in the Valley of more than 12 local digital artist, had my own showing of my artwork at a local coffee shop and finished and self-published The Rainbow Travellers Tarot. It was the beginning of bringing together years of artistic creation and passion and actually stepping out and sharing it with the world. What a rush! People either looked at me with admiration for what they said took a whole lot of courage, or with that glazed look that says “What is she thinking?” It’s funny to find out just where people really stand when you actually do take the risk and those steps towards living your dreams.
Just after the whirlwind of beginning on this brand new adventure, as life would have it life through me a curve ball that I could never have expected. It was life altering and meant that someone I loved needed both Jane (my wife) and my support to find their way back from the depths of illness and breakdown. You can say it never fails, just when you think you know where you are headed life hits you up side the head and makes you realize you really are not in control. What was undeniable was we were needed and if there is a silver lining in a tragic and heart breaking situation I was now self-employed and didn’t have to answer to a boss who would never have understood or much less allowed me to have the time off from the office that I needed to support my family. Two years later, I would have changed nothing, I never regretted leaving my corporate job and I certainly do not regret focusing the time, attention, love and support that was so needed. And you probably guessed it, Murphy’s law means that well, not just one tragic situation is ever enough so we worked through the heartbreaking death of my mother, realizing how she had built this big defensive wall around herself so that no one really knew how ill or hard life had been for her. Estranged for more than 15 years I was able to reconnect and share in her last months, letting her go knowing that I did and would always love her. Add to this the incomprehensible pain my wife had been experiencing for 2+ years that doctors were unable to diagnose and find ease for. Month/Years of appointments, specialists, tests, trial solutions all of which did nothing until two months ago the universe gave her a break with a locum doctor, and a surgeon who were willing to listen, see her pain and finally do a surgery that has thankfully reduced the pain she has lived with for so long. The relief of not feeling like you had been stabbed continually day and night is a blessing. If you’ve made it this far I promise not to go on with many more details. Our lives are often interrupted by suffering, challenges, heartache and fear. What helps is not being alone, reaching out and asking for help when you need it and being there for those you love when they need you. Well that is the what helps us to be resilient and never give up!
