Today, I want to express gratitude for Grace Cirocco. Deeply lost in a marriage that was not working, we went to seek help at Grace’s highly recommended couple’s retreat in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada. Taking place at the vintage Pillar & Post Hotel, it was an experience I will never forget. We walk in and Grace was there with wide open arms to greet us and give us one of her heart to heart hugs. I notice a circle of chairs with little cards on them. We were supposed to just gravitate to one and sit. My card said Release… there was more, but that one word just stuck in my mind. That was the one lesson I took over the 3 days that followed.
I also ended up going to her women retreat few month later, and that was where I had my second major take away lesson, which was to ‘Trust my Heart’! It was at that retreat that I associated myself for the first time with ‘being’ a woman…and where I met new friends who became my soul sisters…and where I had the dream on that last night, that changed my life forever. I trusted my heart, I trusted my dream… and I followed that path.
So Grace, thank you for being hard on me. Thank you for pushing me well beyond my comfort zone. Thank you for opening my eyes and for providing that safe space for me to grow in. Had it not been for that, I’d probably would have never stumbled upon this path to becoming who I am now. I’m forever grateful. Tashi Delai!
