15 Steps to Nowhere for Positively Positive — 2 Comments

  1. More words of wisdom, thank you Melody for sharing them. You have described so well something which Ive been thinking in recent years. I am now 65 and I believe my real life’s journey began when I started my AT course 15 years ago. Speaking my truth has made me unpopular sometimes(especially with my siblings) but I know I am more authentic for doing so. I am learning at last to accept my beauty and uniqueness and reading your blog is a wonderful reminder about being present. Thanks Julia

    • Thank you for this Julia. Sometimes I wonder why I waited 50+ years to begin to love and honor my self. My process started like yours, when I began the gestalt training program. Perhaps if I had done the Alexander training in my 50s it too would have been the beginning of a deeper journey. From what I hear from others, it seems to be an advantageous time in our early 50s. Maybe we have to be over a particular set of needs to see what is true without filters. That’s a tricky and slippery thing to do and oh, so wonderful.
      Recently I wrote to someone about the process of writing the blog and called it ‘exhilarating and a bit terrifying at the same time.’ That about sums up what I think the journey of self discovery and love is, terrifying and exhilarating, and, liberating all at the same time.
      Thanks for taking the time to comment. You are an inspiration.
