Welcome the Interruptions.. Are you sure?

I have always been a list maker.  A get up and getter done  kinda gal. Making lists and then checking them off somehow became who I was. My value came from how much I got done in a day. Thus, you can imagine, when I was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 35, and put on medication which completely disabled me, I had a major crisis of identity. My self-esteem plummeted.  Even though my life depended on it, I was bound and determined to hang onto my lists!  

Thankfully, my journey through that diagnosis, finding a new way of being lead me to a more joyful and peaceful space.  The BEST advice I have been given was from my new and improved husband, who continually teaches me and reminds me that I am a human being not a human doing. I have learned to go ahead and make my lists... and then "Welcome the interruptions, for that is where the miracles live". As I have allowed the list to go unchecked, the miraculous has shown up in its place!  Give it try.

You help me feel EXCITED about life!

You know how some people are just plain fun to be with... all of the time?  They are optimistic, happy and always leave you feeling good.  I created this acknowledgement to share with those people in my life who do just that.  This picture of my granddaughter was a perfect fit.  She helps me feel excited about life.  She is an inspiration every day!
