It is time. Time to gather up my brave and stuff it in my backpack and take the next journey. A journey that I have been preparing for and will take one step at a time.
There is a part of me that would like to stay here, in my comfort zone. Gypsy Jema has been a space for me to practice writing and slowly step out to share scary stuff like our sex addiction story. A place to share the beauty we see such as our visit to the Redwoods, Ruby Beach, or to see life’s miracles as in the hibernating Monarchs. And adventures I never want to relive again like our RV brake failure scare on the mountain’s edge.
Today, my husband and I begin a new journey. After years of healing, we are ready to share our relationship story. A story of our truth and perseverance. A story that is still being written and walked. An imperfect journey of learning how to relate to each other after walking through sex addiction and other unhealthy coping. A journey that started at the age of 11, and then burnt to the ground in 2008. We hope that through sharing our stories, others will know they are not alone. Relationships have struggle, and conflict. Through this we can learn and heal if we are given some tools.
This will be my last blog post here. I am releasing this space, so that I can be fully present in my new one. Thank you for the years of your dedication here. For sharing in our RV adventures and my ramblings. I plan to weave in our RV and travel adventures into our new site at Something Like Marriage.
We are planning big things over there – podcasts, ebooks, videos, retreats, and more. If you are interested in learning more about relationships, or just want to listen to our crazy mess to help you feel better (haha), please join our mailing list! We will then let you know when we officially launch!
Again, thank you. I will be forever grateful for the love you have shown me here to prepare my wings for this moment when I let go of the branch.
