It’s Been A Tough Week…

As many of you know, my father passed a week ago. I cannot express the gratitude and appreciation I feel from all of your emails and text messages, an avalanche of outpourings that really did help me more than you will know.They numbered in the hundreds, and it took me days to reply. Incredible. They showed so much empathy, and also shared so many personal stories of loss. We are all on such a similar journey, and share so many of the same pains and pleasures in life. In fact, the dividing line between all of us seems to get smaller and smaller to me all the time. I’m a very private person, and sometimes find it hard to share personal stuff, but in this case, am very glad I did, as your support was much needed and appreciated. On the up side, I really always say our toughest times present our biggest growth opportunities, and this one is definitely no exception. I am emerging even stronger, wiser and with greater aspirations for all things important to me. So, stay positive even in the negative, and try to find a lesson or two inside the failings…
