Loving again after your life has fallen apart

Are you avoiding loving?  

 Hi, I am Janet Jones, founder of Happiness Millionaire. I have recently started talking to a rock! This helps me navigate the next chapter of my life, the chapter without my 22-year-old son, Murray. The Rock's name is Sylvia-Rose. To learn more about how and why we met, read the first blog - 'If Rocks Could Talk, meet Sylvia-Rose'. 
 
Our chat on the 16th Nov 2021, why it is important to create love after life has fallen apart.
 
SR - Well, well!! Good morning. You made the sunrise. What got you out of bed this morning?
Jan - I didn’t quite make it to see the golden kiss on your back. Next time. What changed? A shift. I read something the other day about love and life. It hit me that you can’t have one without the other. If you are not loving, you are not fully living.
 
 
SR - Great observation. You would think people did that automatically.
Jan - They don’t. I don’t. I realised that when I was afraid to join the crowd of people for the Parkrun on Saturday. I think that is what made the penny drop. When we truly live and love, we are vulnerable. But as we only live once, and Murray’s early departure proves we have no idea for how long, it is best not to put loving off for tomorrow. It is time to be brave. It is time for change. That is what got me up this morning. I actually bounced out of bed!!!
 
SR - Wow!!! Jan, that is truly amazing. I can’t wait to see what comes from your bravery. You know the steps. You have written them. I have your back.
Jan - Thanks. You have been an important part of this journey. I better go now. The tide is coming.
 
SR - You better. Time and tide wait for no man! 😀
Jan - My dad’s favourite saying. If only he had paid more attention. I better dash. That wave nearly got my foot!!
 
SR - Have a great, brave day. 💛
Jan - You too. Run!!!! 😂
