Lean on me

“…something very beautiful happens to people when their world has fallen apart: a humility, a nobility, a higher intelligence emerges at just the point when our knees hit the floor.” 
–  Marianne Williamson

 

Recent developments in my health have resulted in a great deal more humility.

I’ve had to lean on community services such as MedVac as well as lean into friendships more than I have needed to in years.

What at first led to feelings of sadness and even depression have given way to profound gratitude and humility.

I was speaking with the client yesterday who is unable to drive because of his challenges and he is reluctant to reach out to friends when he needs transportation out of fear he would be a burden to them. Man do I know how that feels.

But here’s the reality, if you surround yourself with the right people, people you also make a point of serving out of your love for them, you’d be surprised how willing they are to hold you up and help you out when you need it most.

But you must be willing to ask. You must be willing to admit that you can’t do it all, that you need the help of others and that’s okay. Because there will be times in life when we invite others to lean on us, then there will be times when we need to lean on them. 

And it is when you deny yourself the option to lean on others that life becomes unbearable. So lean on me when you’re not strong and if needed we’ll lean on each other and together we will carry on.

 By the way, in my group coaching program, we gather once a week through video conference to lean on each other and help each other be stronger as we work to create the lives we want, check it out here.

That’s all for now.

When “I don’t know”, is your kid’s favorite answer

Listen to this post … “Why did you do that?” “I don’t know!” If you are raising a neurodiverse kid this is a familiar exchange. Few parents know where to go from here. Fortunately, I do. Einstein said, “It’s not that I’m smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” Introspection doesn’t come naturally to the neurodivergent, especially when

How do you feel about change?

Listen to this post … One assumption many parents and professionals make is that people with Neurodiversity aren’t motivated to improve their lives. It isn’t that they don’t want to change, they may not believe they’re able to change. They often have difficulty finishing what they start or getting started at all. Struggle with creating
