This weekend I pushed myself to do something I would never imagine myself doing. I did a coach training weekend online, sitting on the couch glued to the computer for 18 hours with a bunch of strangers from all over the U.S. and Europe. We forfeited an entire Fall weekend, (luckily it was pewy), and did exercises requiring us to be emotionally naked. And on top of that, it wasn’t my familiar therapy frame, it was “Greek”, forcing my brain to do gymnastics! I tried something totally foreign, from another planet, and guess what? Nobody got killed! The group members made each other cry, chuckle, and feel totally understood around acknowledged dreams. One dismantled roadblock was that people from all walks of life, in different circumstances can not only make a meaningful connection in very little time, but also inspire each other to change and grow. So as I sit here a bit cramped up and numb in the joints, I feel looser in other important ways, really glad I challenged myself. Here’s a quote about this subject you may enjoy:
