While we were all sharing, Deb pointed out something interesting. Each of us, after rattling off why we were (fill in the blank) ended with saying, "And I'm just really glad to be here." Or the like. Now, those of you who have been to these types of things know that that is a pretty much required statement. But each of us - I honestly think - meant it.
And it started me thinking. I used to be the kind of person that made up an excuse. I can't possibly make it to my herbalism class today. I'm too -- tired, sad, hungover, sore, sick. I can't go out tonight because I've got to ....... You get the idea.
I made it through the entire immersion, no excuses, no second thoughts.
Oh my heavens -- I'm evolving!
