“Michael, My life over the last two years has been filled with change and growth€”some of which I jumped for and some of which I went forward with but with resistance. After each step I thought, this is it. I am there . . . only to find within a short time that there was more to uncover or another issue with which to deal. Knowing this, it is understandable that I am not the same person at all anymore. Even since the last time I saw you, more progress has been made on my journey. Interestingly, the more that I do uncover, own, and change the more beautiful and peaceful it feels inside . . . no more sense of urgency or need to control my life and no more fear. Now, I’m just enjoying the journey. I am becoming a grown up . . . For the first time in my life and it’s exhilarating. When I met you I thought I was an adult, but I was a very little child. Now, although I embrace the playfulness of youth and the heart and innocence of a child, I am balancing that with the emotional maturity and responsibility of an adult. I don’t know where I go from here, but I am sure it will be interesting.”
