In debate class, I always would defend the view most opposite from mine. In term papers, I would challenge the professors to rewrite history.
Perhaps it's my wistful nature or my Libran outlook, but I've never been one to turn down an opportunity for introspection. When I die, one of my greatest wishes in the world is to review my life in the form of a movie (ala Defending Your Life start at 3:00). And, when noteworthy stuff occurs, my husband and I frantically wave at the sky...just in case it happens.
As I continue to write this blog, I'm shocked by how much I am learning about myself (and others) in the process.
I never thought I was an incredibly private person. I didn't know I had trouble expressing myself. I wasn't aware I had so much fear running my life. And I could go on and on and on.
A former coaching client summed it up this way via email.
"Kathy, I am hooked on your blog. I caught up last night and read them all and I can't tell you the sense of relatedness I feel. Especially the pregnancy video (LMAO so true!) and the most recent sweet tea! I have laughed and cried and everything in between including being inspired...You really are embracing letting others into your life. It use to be whenever I would ask "how are you?" you would reply "I'm great! but lets talk about you" :-). Thank you for sharing your life with me."
Wow. Talk about perspective. Glad I'm getting it now before it's all over.
