Well, this one hit me deep in the feels!!
I knew that the laughs would be there, as they always are when John and I dish about life together, but the tears were a bit of a sneak attack! I am so glad that that I had the opportunity to speak openly with John about the current death I am experiencing, and have such a loving and safe reception...filled with so much wisdom that I know will also benefit all who listen to this podcast.
Something I think about a lot is the very tight and heavy vow that we all take when getting married of, "Til Death Do Us Part." On one hand, it provides a sense of safety and security in each other and the relationship that is being galvanized, but on the other hand, it can indicate a lack of freedom for the natural, AND NECESSARY growth and evolution that is a part of our human (and spiritual) journey. In this podcast, John and I dive deep into this very vow that we both took when we married nearly 22 years ago, and how we've navigated a series of personal and relationship "deaths" along the way and how we've surfed the waves to end up where we are today.
~ My deepest apologies about the mic cutting out towards the end. Audio quality is very important to me, but the authentic breakdown I was having was more important to share with you! For this reason, we didn't re-record this section so that you can be a part of what felt like such a deep and intimate moment 3
