home base

How bizarre! this post just evaporated.
So this time, no preamble, just a gift from Laura to me, from me to you:

"All that is gold does not glitter,
not all those who wander are lost;
the old that is strong does not wither,
deep roots are not reached by the frost."
(J.R.R. Tolkien)
In other words:
So many of us are less confident on the inside than we might appear
on the outside, so despite what you see, remember...you're not alone.
Just because you're not exactly sure where your headed
doesn't mean you're not on the right path. Faith, trust, and short powerful steps rock!
Tending your mental, emotional, spiritual and physical strength is the best offense...
Because when you do, no matter what life throws at you,
you might wobble, but you will not fall down!
This week, Kate, your Life Leadership challenges are as follows: stay focused on home base (aka, you). If you feel lost, focus on what you do know, and ask for the next right step. It willalways lead you in the right direction, and there will always be another next right step just beyond that one, but you may not be able to see it yet! And always, always choose what will contribute to your inner and outer fortitude, and exercise those things every day, with every choice.
Wishing you focus, trust, strength and resilience this week!

I hope that you were able to focus on you like it says and remember that you *do* have deep roots, which will not be reached by this frost. I hope that it went better than you could have hoped with your realtor yesterday.
