Susan is fighting, but also praying. For a miracle.
At the dawn of 2010 I wrote about miracles and I'm reposting those thoughts, though they were not my own to begin with. Nearly a decade before these ideas went up on my blog, they came out of the mouth of a fascinating, inspiring and sometimes rather goofy man named Craig Dobkin.
An experienced mountain climber, Craig fell off the side of a mountain after a moment of inattention during which he forget to check his ropes before descending. In a workshop with him a year or two after his accident, he shared his story, describing everything from the moment he hit the ground to his time in rehab as a series of miracles.
The world according to Craig Dobkin (circa 1997?).
We can create personal and professional miracles by:
* noting that all behavior is purposeful
* recognizing that miracles are possible and noticing them when they occur
* taking risks
* keeping love present
* understanding that every person in our lives is a potential teacher.
One never has enough information to be pessimistic.
Susan, I'm fighting with you.
