How does this relate to your life?
Imagine finding this figure drawn in the sand.
Is it a circle?
The letter “O”?
Relate this figure to your life.
What does it me to you?
It would definitely be a sign from the Universe that my life has come full circle. I’ve spent the majority of my life searching for meaning, love, acceptance, and my own self-esteem, and at 50, I think I’ve finally found most of those things. I left home at 17 thinking that I just wanted to get out there in the world and discover everything. At 48, I ran back home because everything I’d discovered had left me exhausted and broken. Two years on, I feel like I’ve made a decent recovery. I will always be searching for something, but I no longer feel like I am running away from things in my life. I’ve made peace with myself for the first time ever. I feel more whole and complete, another way to view the image above. I’ve discovered so much about myself over these past couple of years and I know I still have a long way to go to fully understand everything, but I am okay with that. In these waning years, all I have now is time and with such an inquisitive mind, I am enjoying this exploration period of my life.

In the years since you left home I’m sure that alot has changed, so even if you think you’ve come to a “full circle”, maybe it’s time for you to review things you’ve seen before but with a more “mature” way since you’re now older and wiser
When you left at 17 were you looking for the answers outside yourself? Maybe the difference is you came to realize the answers had to come from within?
Yeah, I was… and yes, that is what I have finally come to realize.. actually, I think I realized it when I was diagnosed with cancer.. it was quite a wake-up call
