Never mind whatever else is happening in the world, the waves still crash up on shore, leave something behind, take something, and if I’m observant enough, allow a lot of reflection of several kinds.
I had two conversations today that were inspired me. The first one was with a colleague who has a hearing impairment, and has an incredible story of not just overcoming it, but thriving despite it. I am helping him craft his story and it was invigorating to see his excitement at the opportunity to share his authentic story in a few weeks. The second was with a person on another continent who I had expressed my gratitude for sharing their story in a very public forum. They were kind enough to accept my invite for a call, and we had a wonderful time sharing ideas and books.
While the technology to connect everyone of us on the planet exists, I think that the fear of connecting with another human stops us from actually doing so. And when we get over ourselves and our fears, there are truly wonderful opportunities to learn at any time.
