or was it an alternate timeline?
Very moving. "I've tried to stop predicting the future" is the best way to live mindfully in the present. I learned this by my Father's bedside during what would turn out to be the last month of his life.
“What led me to this nanosecond in time?”
That’s always a fascinating question. All the choices we make and things we do lead us here. Even accidents, mishaps, and happy surprises. I think sometimes we need that space to get tapped back in.
Thanks for sharing.
I found this to be very profound, and by the end of it, my eyes were a little moist, when you said, "we all matter". Of course, it serves no purpose to spiral into what could have happened or how one change would have cascaded into a completely different series of events, but sometimes, we all tend to indulge in those thoughts. I wish you all the courage for taking care of yourself and your family.
‘I’ve tried to stop predicting the future. All I know is that it’s late and I’m not sure if this made any sense and I need to close my eyes. Then tomorrow I’ll welcome Allison and Em back home and we’ll embrace. And I’ll be a little more grateful for them and their love than I was a few days ago.’
Powerful as always Lyle. You’re work here always gives me some much need perspective when I find myself getting wrapped up in things that ultimately don’t matter. Thank you.
Mmmm full of love and patience. Much appreciation Lyle
Perspective. Very thoughtful
Well done Lyle gave me the chills (in a good way) will go see that movie too
What can I say besides I will keep, and re-read?
