Happy Friday everyone! This is one of those thoughtful mornings when I just feel the need to express my thanks. Maybe it’s because of Christina Katz’s great page on her website in which she lists all the people who have assisted her in some way on her journey (trust me – the list is humblingly LONG).
Or maybe my contemplation is related to the feelings I have surrounding the release of Emotional Intensity – feelings that range from stark terror to schoolgirl giddiness.
More likely, it’s just a reaction to my life over the past four months.
As most of you know through my posts, I have experienced my highest highs and my lowest lows recently, all within a few days…sometimes mere hours. This constant rollercoaster of emotion has given me a profound gift…the ability to stay centered in my feelings, neither becoming too attached to the highs, or the lows.
You know what…It’s a great place to be, in the middle. It really is. I find myself not getting caught up in the drama of everything, not swinging in my moods.
And I find myself appreciating the nuances of life all that much more.
And yeah, I find myself contemplating all of this at 4am!
Back to my need to express my thanks…
So, while I’ve been contemplating all of this, I thought of the beginnings of a list of people I really needed to thank for helping me over the last few months – doing everything from being a great friends, to reminding me to breathe, to inspiring me to greater things, to encouraging in ways that are amazing. This list is by no means exhaustive, just a beginning ….

Okay, I really could go on and on. Amazing as you start the list how many names begin to pour out.
