I keep this thought in the forefront of my mind. It helps me be a more understanding and compassionate person.
My husband, my friends, my family.
I treasure my body’s ability to heal quickly.
I am so inspired by reading these stories. My gratitude to you all today!
My husband is exploring his religious roots in the church of his childhood. I do not have respect for this church, but I know that it is something he feels called to do and is very important to him. So I offer my acceptance.
I am preparing to retire next year. I have worked all my life and know I will need to fill that hole with meaningful activities and rest. I can be very hard on myself for being “lazy” so I need to be mindful that it doesn’t motivate me, it just makes me tired!
I read a beautiful story in the Washington Post about a young refugee from Sudan who was able to leave the refugee camps to come to the US and start a business. Incredible story of perseverance and love of family.
I am preparing to retire in a year, and while I have been blessed with many friends, a loving husband and fulfilling work, I worry about isolation and loneliness. I have worked for nearly 40 years–and have always found great meaning in helping others. I am feeling afraid that I won’t find anything else and that my days will be empty and long. Letting go is hard and trusting the process is even harder. Thank you all for your comments today.
Me neither! 🙂
So true, Ed!
