“Sometimes, reaching out and taking someone's hand is the beginning of a journey. At other times, it is allowing another to take yours.” Vera Nazarian
I've been helping a friend, an older woman, someone whose been a mentor. She once opened a door, gave me an opportunity to take a stand and share my truth.
Now the tables have turned. She needs my help, someone to listen, to let her talk, to cry it out. Someone hurt her, hurt her really bad. I'm happy to be there for her, grateful I can repay her kindness. And something interesting has happened - a stronger bond has formed between us. We're becoming tight.
Life's like that. Sometimes someone helps you out and then it's your turn to give back to them. I think it's what Mafasa in the Lion King would say, it's the circle of life. Grateful for......
-2014. The year's been amazing. Many neat things that have happened this year. Too many to list.
-Booked to share my story to women living at a halfway house in January. Another opportunity to give back. To know someone's smiling b/c of me, makes me feel ten feet tall.
-Countdown to celebrating Christmas in a different way than we're used to - warm temps, no snow and cold. Totally excited.
-Faith. It's made such a huge impact in my life. It totally changed the way I think and how I move in the world. It's the filter through how I see things, a huge difference than the filter I used to look through. It's what I'm most grateful for.
Happy Thursday, Guys.
