After struggling through many changes in 2010 from a personal standpoint, I've never in my life felt so low. Now, I understand why people take extended timeout to come to terms on their devastating losses.
In the back of my mind, the events still felt so real. HY said time to get over it...Ok, let's take it one step at a time. Maybe, next year when I pay my respects I will start to smile because deep down in my heart I know dad and fourth brother are resting in peace. Sad thoughts aside, I only have this book to share today.
A book by Bill Gates Senior, "Showing Up for Life".
I think this quote in the book is the best way to sum it up:
Life is the ultimate teacher, but it is usually through experience and not scientific research that we discover its deeper lessons. We are all here for a single purpose: to grow in wisdom and learn to love. We can do this through losing as well as through winning, by having and by not having, by succeeding or by failing. All we need to do is to show up openhearted for class...So fulfilling life's purpose may depend more on have we play than what we are dealt. You have to be present to win.Till my next posting...Remember to show up!
