This has been such an amazing week (and it’s only Wednesday!)
While most people (me included) realize that everything happens in its own time and that you must learn to walk before you can run – it’s difficult to internalize all of that when you are in the midst of wanting something better, faster – NOW!
I just finished a tutoring session with a student I have worked with for many, many years – he has had to learn to live with and adapt to severe dyslexia and dyscalculia (reversals in letters and numbers). All of the baby steps we have taken together gave him wings today – We were working on his budget and while calculating some numbers took time and effort – he was able to calculate some instantly and correctly in his head! I have to say that again…he calculated numbers correctly IN HIS HEAD!
I hope he realizes the enormity of what happened. We celebrated then his mom and I did too…
It took us a long time to get here. It was not easy by any means for him, his family, or me – we all worked very hard for this moment and yes, I’m basking in the afterglow!
So when we feel we hit that wall in life (or in writing) – we need to be persistent and start CLIMBING that wall…
I’ll see all of you soaring above it and flying in the clouds!
