Living Without You

How do you cope with the loss of a loved one? Do you withdraw into a fantasy world where he/she is still with you?  Do you escape reality?

When Mari thought Harley was dead, she wrote out her grief in a series of letters addressed to Harley.

What if the person you lost was your soulmate? Years ago, I lost the love of my life, my soulmate. At the time I felt like my life was over. I withdrew into a world of grief and wanted nothing more than to join my beloved behind the veil. Yes, I contemplated suicide.

Then, one night as I sat on the floor of my bedroom thinking about the ways I could take my life I had a vision. My beloved did not want that for me. He wanted me to go on living.

So I did. It was the hardest thing I ever did. Trying to live without my love took courage and strength I wasn’t sure I had. People told me the pain of grief goes away. That eventually you stop missing that person. I did not find that to be true. I learned that with time the pain diminishes, but it never entirely goes away. The love you feel is still there in your heart.

Some people move on and find other partners, some don’t. Regardless of whether you  do so or not, the love for your lost one is still in your heart. Eventually, you find that you can look back on the time you shared with joy, and tenderness. This remembrance brings pleasant emotions and healing.

My books can be found on Anazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Goodreads, and Smashwords. Samples if my books can ve found at

How do You Know He/She is the One?

I was asked the other day, how do you know if the person you are seeing is The One for you?

That’s a good question. Is it the way your heart beats rapidly at the mere thought of that person? Or are you looking through the proverbial rose colored glasses?

How does this person make you feel? Are you euphoric? Giddy with joy? Do you only see good things? Chances are, you are wishing for true love.

Does this person look out for you? Make you feel safe and protected without stifling you? Do they encourage you to seek out your goals and offer to help you, even if it’s only encouragement? Does your being happy make them feel the same? Or are they mainly focused on what they want, and what you can give them?

In my Ride With Harley books, the two main characters, Harley and Mari both strive to take care of, encourage, and support each other through family problems, health issues, and mistakes they make.

I believe true love means never abandoning the other. If you love them, you help them through obstacles and to reach their personal goals.

I also believe there may be a time when the relationship no longer works. I’m not saying you should remain in a relationship that has become abusive or destructive regardless of your attempts to reconcile the problem. If you are in danger, you should leave and find a safe haven.

I have also witnessed a bad relationship turn around due to the couple’s love for each other and willingness to work out their problems.

True love is steadfast through adversity and does not emotionally or physically harm.

True love never dies even when the partner passes from this world into the heavens.
