I'm a 57 year old divorced woman. My kids have moved out. I've set my life as ideal as I can with my resources. I work in a beautiful nature preserve and I live in a tiny house with a beautiful view of the water and mountains. I often go out on the deck and draw in a deep soul-filling breath. I get tremendous gratification from this house and my greenhouse and my flowers. The drawback is that I'm at the end of a tiny peninsula reached by most people by ferry and lots of driving. I've dated men but most live in more populated areas, where their jobs are, and I'm not willing to move there if our relationship came to that. Now approaching retirement I feel the need for a partner to travel with, or just for companionship. I imagine being married to a man and living in the city and looking across the water to the mountains and feeling sick at what I gave up.

Am I giving too much up? Will I be happy and fulfilled, though alone?

Answer from God through Brian:

"Seclusion can be a good thing in moderation but over time the feelings of awe that you currently experience will fade. I would like you to be more open to change and once you allow me to bring you great new things, you will find even more things in your life that bring you joy."
