In my wildest dreams I never thought I would be sitting here writing things down and thinking that people would want to read them. I have not found writing a comfortable and authentic modality for expressing my thoughts and feelings. However, I have a style of working that I tend to present people with metaphors in order for them to internalize a lesson or concept at a deeper level. More than once I have heard people say to me that they have come in to get a “Lee-ism” for them to reflect upon and give them strength as they struggle through a situation. They have requested that I put these stories down for them to be able to reread.
So…I’m hoping that putting them down on paper will remind me of the perspectives I want to maintain while I deal with my own life and hopefully will support those of you reading them with ideas that will fortify you as you deal with your life. I am happy to hear your stories too. If you have a story that you think would be helpful in teaching people how to cope while going through this complicated thing call ‘life’ then please don’t hesitate to call me or write me. To answer Oprah’s question, “What I know for sure is that we are all just building resilience one day at a time.”
p.s. I have no idea how often I'll be inspired to sit down and write. I have no plan to write one post per week or anything like that. But you will get my "Lee-isms" as they come to me!
