About Learning to Living Like Water


I was married for 32 years.  Over the years, the marriage became more and more emotionally abusive.  It took me a long time to figure it out, a long time to get out once I figured out I had to to save my life and my son’s life.  Once I managed to leave the marriage, I faced an epic battle which took 4 years and ended up in the Supreme Court of Connecticut.

Learning to Live Like Water is the working title of a book I am in the process of writing about that battle, to leave, to survive, to save my son,  and to get what was mine.  Along the way, I found a path to walk, a path that I didn’t as much look for, as was just put in front of me.

Living like water is a way of living.  It’s our journey back to source.  As water always is on a journey back to the ocean, I am always on a journey to get back to my center.  Living like water means you find a way over the rough patches, change course when the dam blocks you, with steady motion, you break down the barriers.  Water always finds a way, and I found, so will the human spirit when allowed.

I learned lessons on this journey that I would not otherwise have learned.  Now I am grateful for the whole journey, I know it was meant to teach me, that in my struggles I stumbled upon my strength.  The most important lesson is the power of love…the only real power which exists.  Unconditional love….saved me, saved my son, and is what we will all find at the center, if we can let go of the fear that keeps us from this journey.

  3. After We divorced after 33 years almost the same circumstances. It was a very hard thing for me to handle and I become homeless. Long story short.. A guy I met told me to have a great day and this came out of my mouth.. I’m going to in spite of myself.

  4. Blessings to you along your journey and may you indeed be surprised by joy! Thanks for popping in on my post in theseeds4life. I hope I’ve encouraged you. 🙂

  5. Wow. I am so happy I started a blog too…. I never thought about the possibility of meeting others and being encouraged so much. Honestly, I didn’t even know others would be able to see my stuff (unless they accidentally stumbled on it!) When you commented on my first post it was SO encouraging and since then, I have found others who have been through a lot of the same stuff. Thanks so much for posting the lessons you have learned and for the positive attitude you have. You are a gift! 🙂
