Out of the midlife ashes, hope rises

Hyatt Grand Cypress Resort near Walt Disney World


(photo: The Hyatt, built 1984, was here when we (the person below) met in 1990, but State Road 535 was still a little two lane country road.)

Yesterday morning a social media note:

Good morning! I wanted to tell you that I am re-reading your book. Reading slowly this time. I value it so differently this time. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Asked a few questions and in reply:

I truly have tears in my eyes right now. I was not in a good place when I read it the first time and I knew you were telling me something but I just wasnt getting it. I was resisting change. I now have the strength to appreciate it. Thriving not survivng. I am so thankful that I knew you because I hear your voice speaking to me when I read it. Stuck on pages 7 and 14!

At the end of the day, the book leans towards being a kick in the ass butt. And we all need that a few times in life.
