I have been thinking and feeling a lot about Saturday; it has been running in the background of my mind and heart for the past couple days. It was a remarkable experience for me in many ways. I have never been a part of something quite like that.
As you stood up there speaking and sharing so much of yourself, I started to come to the realization of how remarkable a person you are, to freely give so much of yourself without reservation. As you introduced each of the experts in attendance, I realized that you had an intimate connection with each of them in some way, whether personally or professionally. You are like a sun with the planets happily nestled within your gravitational pull. lol
I must confess that I did not think much about this event; I was a reluctant participant. Most of that is a “me” issue. I feel, in many ways, that this was a wake-up call for me....I need to fix myself; I have been in a rut for a very long time. I need to get back to being me. Somewhere along the lines, I have missed something, developed poor patterns, etc...
I truly feel blessed to have been a part of the symposium. I left feeling energized and excited. I was thinking, "Something special happened in that room today." I have become much more aware my behaviour, my words and actions since Saturday. I have known for a long time that I am "off", and have needed to change but always felt like a deer caught in the headlights. You and the other experts have provided me with some direction and I am so glad for that that it is difficult to express.
