Thanks so much Mark:-) My best yet…..what will I do for this week!! Yikes! But seriously, I very much appreciate your comments and encouragement. I also loved, loved, loved reading everyone’s comments about your Ruby transformation. As always, it’s humbling to be connected with you. So I’m beanie tippin’ back at you my friend!
A wonderful post, Tracey, I think it’s your best ever. Man, your dad sure knew how to get people’s attention— nothing like humor with an unexpected twist to grab you by the neck!
That’s such a great question you’ve asked: “If the path to success is through failure, then why do we wallow in self pity or run away?” I think it takes many of us a long time to learn that first lesson: that one has to fail before one can succeed. I guess we run away from that need to fail— which is ultimately self-defeating.
And the idea that problems teach compassion that can be shared with others… that’s very powerful. We’re all so self-involved, we forget how essential compassion is. Life would be a mighty cold slog without it…
Great post, I’m tipping my beanie to you— again!! : )
