The last two weeks have been spent going back and forth between Valdosta, Athens and Atlanta, visiting family, friends, and loved ones. There were a few surprises, both pleasant and unpleasant, and without going into too much detail, here’s what I learned:
- Intimacy is much better than fame.
- Cultivate your friends carefully — quality is always better than quantity.
- There comes a point where we become caretakers to our parents, and our parents become like our children. It’s terrifying, and yet it allows us to lovingly serve those who helped us become who we are, in a way that truly brings balance to the circle of life. I hope I have a long, long time to serve my many Mothers (both biological and spiritual) in this way.
- We all want the dignity of making our own decisions, without feeling pressured or harassed.
- Doctors know a lot about one thing. But they don’t know everything.
- When we’re hurt, scared, and in pain, it’s always best to have an advocate at our side to help.
- I am love, and you are too.
Here’s hoping this finds you right where you need to be. All my love to you and yours!
