Here is a quick example of how choosing a step is playing out right now. Last night I chose to go to a book event at our synagogue with my dear friend Barbara. I walked into the talk barely leaning on my cane. So happy to be out for an evening after last weeks confinement. I enjoyed the young engaging author Peter Manseau, he is a wonderful story teller. It was a joy to see friends I hadn't seen for a while, to shmooze for a few minutes at the end...but my legs were now heavy and stiff, and weren't moving the way they had when Barbara and I had walked in. I left leaning on both my cane and my friend. 2 hours and I was wiped out. Today, I’m spending the day quietly resting in bed. I made a choice to go out for a few hours. I’m so glad I did. But today there is just being. No doing. This is my eMeS. I took a step. And now I must rest. One step. Who knew when I came up with the tagline for my coaching business a year and a half ago that it would become so literal for me.
...breath by breath...moment by moment...step by step.
gentle steps everyone,
