In our lobby at the office is a beautiful version cross stitched from my beautiful mom.
Yesterday I listened to a webinar (I generally have way more CE -- continuing ed units -- than I need. Love to learn) The topic was Living in the Second Circle: How we are changed by the work we do with Ben Wolfe. It was powerful with much wisdom to ponder. Such as: we spend time preparing a will putting our finances in place ... what about sharing our will of what matters. Once upon a time .. we had TIME with people. Live life. Don't pass through it. Listen or your tongue will make you deaf. There are times when being truly listened to is more important than being fed. Reflect on who has gotten off and on your life train. The holiest of all holidays are the secret anniversaries of the heart. Henry Wadsforth Longfellow.
One of the books recommended: Five things we cannot change and the happiness we find by embracing them, by David Richo:
1. Everything changes and ends.
2. Things do not always go according to plan.
3. Life is not always fair.
4. Pain is part of life.
5. People are not loving and loyal all the time.
I finished the webinar and thought what a blessing to be in a profession where I am profoundly affected by the work I do each day.
