We Have an Opening…

This morning…Bertha…reminds me that…in order to be…open…to the future…I have to…continually…let go…of the past…

She goes on to say…letting go…is not the same thing…as…forgetting…I can remember…savor…the past…I just have to…let go…of the…expectation…that it will continue in the present…

As I contemplate it…I realize that it is true…for all areas of my life…from raising my children…to moving from one town to another…to relationships…

And…the list could go on and on…

But…today…it feels appropriate for work…where…suddenly…I have become…one of the…veterans…in a field of new…soldiers

Bertha…says my mission…should I choose to accept it…and…no…I don’t have a choice…is…to continue to savor…the camaraderie I shared with my friends over the years…while…being open to new friends…and…new ways of doing things…

Hmmm…

Definitely a challenge…but…by no means…impossible

Waiting for What Is…

Today…I go for my annual MRI…and to see my neurosurgeon…I feel better than I felt…this time last year…I have every reason to believe that I will get a good report…

And…yet…

I’m pensive…could I be wrong…

Bertha…says…of course I could be…but…she also says…it’s wasted energy to focus on the…what ifs…when…I’ll know soon enough…what is

She says it applies to all areas of my life…not just…Chiari check-ups…
