by Steven Schwartz, D.C.
The writing process of my anthology contribution was very curious for me because the story I was writing about was still very fresh in my life. Literally a few months following my actual resignation, I was invited to participate in this book.
This story was therapy for me. I was able to go over the events again and again and to really look at where I made mistakes in my life. At age 37, and starting all over, I wanted to avoid making the same mistakes twice. Each read-through, I gained more insight. With every revision, I was able to contemplate what was most important to me. I was able to look at what I was doing currently and see if I was falling into old patterns. I was able to see what made my soul happy. I discovered that I am the happiest when I follow a spiritual path and keep my body, mind and spirit in alignment.
The aftermath of writing this story involved my feeling complete with” that” part of my life. In fact, I felt so complete, I didn’t even care if my story got published at all. I felt as if I truly understood the lessons that I needed to move forward in my new life.
In the months that followed writing my story, I felt very wise and very happy. I knew I was given a huge blessing, a second chance to live the life of my dreams. I take that very seriously and wake every morning in a place of gratitude for the day ahead. The biggest lesson I learned during all of this is to appreciate what gifts I was given and what a gift I am to others.
