Just spent 4 hours at an eye doctor’s clinic with my mom. Her vision has deteriorated lately and no treatments are unfortunately available to help her see better. Activities that I usually take for granted such as reading, watching TV, pressing elevator buttons or crossing a street have become close to impossible for her now… She’s in her 80s and is a very kind, stoic and positive woman. Glass is always half full for her – she’s such an inspiration to everyone around!
“Your problem is you’re… too busy holding onto your unworthiness.”
Yes. There’s a personal story connected to this saying. One day at a rock climbing gym as I was reaching the top of the tall climbing wall I had a moment of intense fear. “You can’t do it”, – the fear said to me “this is unsafe, you will fall down, you’re just not strong enough”. It was a momentary uncomfortable experience, fear gripping my whole body and thoughts racing in my head. I looked down and saw my partner belaying me (essentially I was being held by a strong rope and so no matter what would happen, the worst outcome would’ve been me just dangling a bit in the air until I grabbed onto a stone again). I took a deep breath and looked up and noticed that I only had 3 more stones to go, I knew I was physically strong enough to proceed. And then it hit me “I was the one stopping myself. Always”.
