"A beginning is only the start of a journey to another beginning." Unknown.
I started blogging in 2006 and wonderful things came out of it: solid friendships with people from around the world. Through blogging I processed some of the most important experiences in my short Life. At 41, I feel there is so much about Life I have yet to discover, so many mysteries to delve into. But there have been two main metaphors which have driven me: the journey and lighthouses.
This blog is called The Lighthouse Network because of three people in my personal life who I have trusted to always tell me the truth: my best friend, my mentor and my healer. They warn me when I approach dangerous rocks. They inspire me with their wisdom, compassion, humour and candid communication style. They inspire me to become the best person I can be; to discover and follow my values; to walk a Spiritual Path; to delight in Life itself. Because of them, I aspire to a Lighthouse.
After all, I am the woman your mother warned you about. There really aren't many mistakes I haven't made, but throughout it all, I've learnt and grown. The journey so far has been interesting (in the Chinese sense), but I can honestly say, I'm not bored yet. This isn't a single event, this is a process. And I hope you'll join me and enjoy my journey as much as I do (even the hard and challenging bits).
