Casey Eye Institute offered a wonderful conference: 2017 Macular Degeneration and Vision Expo. It was a privilege to be their keynote speaker at this event. Thriving in the Journey: Embracing Life one step at a time. Afterwards there was a book signing of our book: Look up, move forward.
A client told me recently ... I just need to be resilient. I reminded her that resilience is a journey with each challenge we are faced and one of the important steps is to honor our feelings ... to articulate and process our feelings in ways that we feel supported ... write, talk, draw, exercise, process our feelings. Let it take the time it needs.
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style -- Maya Angelou.
