The next two days are rest days for preparing for our 1/2 marathon on Saturday. I've been telling Steve I'm on rest mode and he just doesn't seem to believe me :)! Sounds kind of nice for a moment but really would be so hard if you had to, right!
How do you give someone the gift of self-confidence, belief in themselves, and not worry what others think? I work on this journey each day with clients. One client told me today, you seem to be at peace. I said, well I have the opportunity to share this message with so many clients - perhaps a little bit stays with me :).
I also believe that is one of the gifts that Retinitis Pigmentosa has given me. I laughed remember running into a neighbor at the grocery store years ago shortly after I had quit driving. She said, wow I don't think anyone would want to be you. When you think about that statement ... how freeing! I just had to come from a place of feeling peace to be myself.
I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content. Walt Whitman
Deep thoughts ... maybe I better go rest :).
