You are living your life, loving and appreciating more than you ever thought possible.

You are grateful, You are happy, You are content.

You drop so much of the fear, fully engaging in the moment and all life has to offer.

You start to anticipate with pleasure this new phase of life you are entering.

You are laughing and loving and living.

Then – the thing you’ve secretly dreaded happens.

The other shoe drops.

And all you can do …

Is pick it up, dust it off …

And hope and pray with all your might …

That it turns out to be a magic ruby slipper.
