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.
