A handful of you know this amazing man and many of you don't...at least not yet.
A handful of you know our fun story and many of you don't...at least not yet.
A handful of you have reached out to ask or celebrate and congratulate and it has been so appreciated.
I have been wrapping up my next book, Alchemizing Judgment, and simply didn't have the brain juice left to write the full, heartfelt Gratitude post like I knew I wanted to.
The book is complete and here I am on a night of total awe and appreciation for this man.
I met Tim back in 2016 through a mutual coaching network and we stayed connected over the years.
We worked together in many ways and we have supported each other in many endeavors.
Although it took me two years to get him on the Hearts Unleashed Podcast, I was thrilled to share his brilliance with my audience and now I am excited to share him with you in more detail.
Once coach and client, Timothy helped me work on healing and transforming my life, business, and spirituality.
He helped release my past, write two books in one year, quadruple my business, and recreate my relationship with God. (I sure am glad I dedicated Talking to the Trees to him before we started a relationship otherwise it might look like nepotism now )
One of my favorite things to joke about is that I told him everything I wanted in a man before I recognized him as that man.
I told him everything I wanted out of life before he offered to join me in life.
I was unabashed in my coaching with Timothy.
I was raw and open and never held back in the work.
I was the most me ever and he helped me discover next level versions of myself I was too hesitant to share.
This consistently proved to be beneficial and when our relationship shifted after an in person retreat, I understood that he knew who and what he was choosing by choosing a relationship with me.
We align in so many ways.
We communicate effectively and lovingly.
We have fun.
We have direction...
We have very similar direction.
We honor our guidance.
We honor each other.
We honor God.
And he's weird like me.
I WISH I could compile the most robust expression of gratitude for how it feels to be his partner. I wish I could. It might take another book...
I am grateful he knew what he was choosing not because I 'feel so lucky' to finally be chosen by a man.
I am so grateful to myself for allowing my full self to live unleashed.
I am grateful for the day I became willing to admit how ready I was for love again.
I am grateful to him for guiding me through that work.
I am grateful for how big I experience his being.
I am grateful for the divine intervention of that retreat.
There may be ethical thoughts, questions, or concerns about how two might shift from coach/client to couple.
That answer is simple: ethically.
That retreat showed me the man that Tim is, not the coach.
Similar to the day we realize our parents are just other people in the world figuring out life too, I saw the human Tim.
I saw his heart bigger than I ever saw it.
I saw his light shine right out of his big brown eyes and huge smile.
My heart shifted from looking to him to transform my life to becoming a part of it instead.
As quickly as a camera lens adjusts its focus, I could see my counterpart in plain view.
It took me another week to confess my love and let me tell you; my honesty worked out in my favor.
I am grateful I was so honest with myself so that I can be so honest with him, and he with me.
I am grateful for the paths life has taken us down and that they intersect here.
I am grateful I made my inner work a priority as to have a heart ready for so much love, abundance, and joy.
I am grateful for my own commitment to authenticity that has empowered me to align with such an amazing human.
I am grateful for who Tim is in every facet of his being.
I am just so purely grateful.
