Every once in awhile, the universe gives you a moment (or two) when you feel strong connection to a person (or two), sometimes those you barely know. They are the people who truly "get you." They find their way into your life, just at the moment you need them most, for the lessons most needed. I have had those moments and people a few times in my life.
I shared in How I Stopped Biting My Nails about one of those people, my friend, Kim. What I learned from her was much more about life than simply being the impetus for my final nail-biting episode.
Today, it has been one of our own Persona Paper people, MegL . I think that she and I are the only two people on here at this time (1300 PDT my time).
As I have been consumed with meeting this goal I set many weeks ago, and being on the brink of reaching it, I have not been able to let it go. I am driven to reach it now, rather than wait another day. It does cause me to be uber-sensitive to all that goes on around me.
I know that I question my own sanity, as others may be already convinced. One can see how my mind works, simply by reading through that which I have written today, if nothing else.
But what MegL did for me is to accept me, as I shared some of my deeper pinings. She "gets me." Some, of which she related to me, was equal to decades of meeting with counselors, and reading of self-help books. She simply accepted me, "as is."
No advice. No warnings. No pom-poms. But simple words as a reminder that there are some in this world who think and do differently.
Thank you, Meg. From the bottom of my heart.
