The life you left behind, you’re standing in now.
Think forward, think back, stand still, listen to your heart beat.
Who you were is who you still are;
Older, wiser , fractured, healed;
Say goodbye to the past that haunts you, while you bury bones and axes and be the best version of yourself.
Burn the ashes and throw them out to sea.
Never look back to find me, I never left, you just can’t see.
To All the Woman
who have walked before me,
beside me and
will walk after me;
Thank you for your gift of love, courage, bravery, power and heart.
I am because of YOU!
Together we are one!
To my daughters, you are my world and I’m so proud of you❣️
To my sisters of heart, you mean more to me, than you will ever know❣️
To my boys, you know who you are ( I am nothing without you)❣️
And especially to my mother, the strongest woman I know❣️
Have a beautiful week ahead!
Blessings of Love,

So glad to hear that Sara! Cograts on your move! 💗
Thank you. 😊
Your words are beautiful and heartfelt, and I can feel the depth of your emotions through your writing. It takes a lot of strength to let go of the past and embrace the present, and you have captured that struggle in your words. Your message of gratitude to the women who have come before you, beside you, and will come after you is touching, and it reminds us all of the importance of female solidarity and support. Your words of love and pride for your daughters, gratitude to your sisters of heart, and appreciation for the boys in your life are a testament to the love and compassion in your heart. Your message serves as an inspiration to us all to cherish and honor the women in our lives who have made us who we are today. 👍👏👌😊

Thank you truly for reading, your time, your appreciation and honor. Blessing you back with the same. Blessings to you always! 💗

I find it difficult with replying to anyone including you on your blog posts. I don’t know why the ‘Reply’ button doesn’t work for me here.
Anyway, yes, you got it right. It’s Kumar. You can call me by this name. Thank you for your message and kind words. It’s really heartwarming to receive appreciation for something I wrote. I am glad that my words could add some depth to yours and convey the message in a more meaningful way. Thank you for taking the time to read my message, and for your blessings. I wish you all the best and send blessings your way too. Take care and stay safe. ❤️ 😊
This is such a beautiful and heartfelt tribute, Cindy. It was an absolute joy to read. I wish you a good week, although I realise we are now halfway through it (I am late in replying). With fond love Xx 💖
