Momentous Decisions Made

It has been something Jacky and I have thought so very long and hard about...
You have something that you have created, you know it could be made bigger and better, but you start at the beginning and try to work your way to your goal...
But sometimes, something steps in your way and says 'I can do better' and so, against every instinct, you hand over your baby.
There is such regret and sadness, a feeling of sickness in the pit of your stomach and tears in your eyes. You know that, given the chance this could have been something wonderful...
The memories that have been made, the people you have met, the friendships forged.. is that all gone now? Oh, you know all the mistakes you have made, the things that could have been done differently, better.
But, you never forget, YOU DID IT!


Someone may come along who can do it better, but we were always FIRST!


And so,

You face reality....


You pick yourself up....


Dust yourself off....


Surround yourself with those who love you most...


And forge on ahead to...


BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS

To all those who have supported us, shared in some amazing memories with us and been genuine, loyal friends...


THANKYOU, THANKYOU, THANKYOU!!!! WE LOVE YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS.

THIS IS JUST A FORK IN THE ROAD OF OUR LIFE. OUR PRIORITIES WILL CHANGE, OUR PATHS WILL BE ALTERED BUT WE WILL KEEP GOING...

WE WILL BE SAD, GOODBYES ARE ALWAYS SO SAD.

Hi Jo,
You don't say what your decision is. I take it you are talking about the retreat. Have you decided not to do any more? Don't be too hard on your self, you set yourself an extremely difficult task to organise one on the other side of the country, and you did a great job. Why not just concentrate on the Dwellingup ones and craft that into something really special. There are lots of different retreats in USA and there seems to be enough room for all of them. I'm sure there's enough room for more than one in Aust as well. Chin up, and keep smiling. You brought retreats to Australia, and I'll be forever grateful.
