Thank you for continuing to share your journey and for asking thought-provoking questions, Omar. What do I need to let go of? Where do I start? For one thing--and I know this may sound trivial to some--I need to let go of my negative attitude toward wrinkles. I'm not kidding! This makes me think of Nora Ephron's hilarious take on this subject, "I Feel Bad About My Neck." At least I know I'm not alone. I will try to work on shifting my attitude this week. Wish me luck.

As for your question on the direction of your blog, which I love just as it is, I think you need to follow your heart. Instead of writing either/or, can you write both/and? What will feed your stomach as well as your soul? The only one who can tell you, is you.

Thanks as always for all you do. You sweeten my week and always give me something to appreciate and reflect on.

I am sorry for your pain. I cannot imagine how hard finalizing your divorce was for you. I do know that the end of a relationship, painful as it is and much as we fight it, can be a stepping stone to positive things if we're patient, resilient, and open enough. I predict this will be true for you, my friend. I look forward to hearing more next Sunday.

My friend! Or should I say “my trigger”. Thank you for always triggering me with your questions.

Letting go of old ways is my biggest challenge and I’ve committed to not give up on it. Today I find myself in a path in which I am given the opportunity to evolve and I’m looking for the strength I need to make it by acting differently. Go Agus!

PS: remember you have a whole team behind you these days. Go Omar!
