Soul Musings/Day 26: Loneliness


Yesterday was at times a challenge as I spent the afternoon and evening by myself with family thousands of miles away in California.

Trying to pinpoint exactly what it was that ached inside of me for physical connection to my sons and grandchildren. For a partner to cuddle me in his arms and share laughter in front of the fire.

It was a choice not to travel to be closer for all of us. In spite of acceptance of this the pangs of loneliness crept in like stealth maneuvers and left me holding my heart.

And then I remembered that I held everything inside – my children and grandchildren, the partner that will some day appear in my life, the trees, animals, sun, moon and stars…..even You that are reading this post.

Suddenly I knew that all was well, even the loneliness that took up residence for moments of time.

Embracing it all I smiled.



Inspiring New Possibilities, Living From the Soul of Life While Co-creating Well Being of Body, Being, Heart and Planet….One Breath At A Time

Soul Musings is a 31-day practice for the month of December immersed in deep listening to what is emerging and unfolding day by day.  Eight sentences with occasional resources to explore more deeply.

Each post, invited by Soul, allows the words to emerge unscathed from prior planning, editing, or censorship.  Dwelling in uncertainty and dipping a toe into mystery this union of words is an attempt to resonate within an innate way of Being…. returning “home”.
