Commit or Quit in Love? Do NOT Make This Decision Until You Hear This

Life, in its intricate dance of moments and decisions, often leads us to the crossroads of commitment and freedom. For me, this wasn’t just a metaphorical journey through two divorce decisions but also a deeply personal evolution through love’s trials, triumphs, and the transformative power of self discovery.


The Crossroads of Commitment

At the heart of my journey was the monumental decision: Should I Stay or Should I Go? This dilemma, laden with emotional complexity, wasn’t merely about choosing between paths but rather a deep dive into the essence of what I truly sought in love and life. I was challenged to listen to my own intuition, and as most of us know, that isn’t always easy. “Facing the stay or go decision is a monumental moment… it challenges us in that we need to listen so incredibly intently to our inner selves.”


A Call for More

My quest wasn’t just about escaping a situation that no longer served me but about yearning for a connection that transcended the ordinary. The pursuit of a love that was not defined by societal norms but rather it was a true reflection of my deepest desires. “This call to more was, for me, a deep-seated yearning for a relationship that transcended the ordinary.” It took my reaching the point of no return in order to answer this call.


The Path to Authentic Love

The journey through divorce and beyond was rife with challenges, yet it was these very obstacles that catalyzed my growth. Each step, each decision, brought me closer to understanding my worth and the love I deserved. I firmly believe that in following our own intuition and acting from a place of love, we simply cannot make a wrong decision. “Every decision brings you closer to the life that you’re meant to lead… when we can hold space for this uncertainty and continue to act from a place of love, we cannot misstep.”


Finding Love at the Finish Line

Remarkably, true love found me when I least expected it – at the finish line of a marathon, a metaphorical and literal journey that mirrored my pursuit of happiness. This unexpected twist in my story is a testament to the beauty of embracing life’s unpredictability with an open heart. I am grateful to be able to share this part of my story with you in my upcoming book, “Run For Your Life: Lessons Learned From Going the Distance.”


A Life and Love Reimagined

I have been through difficult relationships and two divorces, so I’ve had my share of challenges when it comes to love and it has been my honour to share parts of my story over the last couple of weeks that have not been shared so vulnerably in the past. Despite these past relationship outcomes, today I stand in a relationship that is the epitome of the love I once dreamed of. It’s truly magic! A partnership built on mutual respect, understanding, and a shared vision for the future. It’s a daily reminder that the path to finding true love starts with embracing our authentic selves and the courage to answer life’s call to more. This is what I most wish for you too!


A Message of Hope

To those standing at their crossroads, feeling the weight of decision, know this: you are not alone. Your journey, with its highs and lows, is leading you towards the love and life you are meant to have. Trust in your inner voice, embrace your journey of self discovery, and know that you are worthy of a love that truly makes you happy.
