You Are Amazing

05 May 2017 Written by 

When you think back on the greatest teacher you ever had, what was it that made that teacher great? Perhaps that teacher made you feel special, or made you believe in yourself, or encouraged you to use your voice to speak your truth. The point is, you remember this person for how they made you feel.

 

To me this is profound. I do not need to spew words of wisdom. I do not need to prove that I am intelligent. No, the greatest gift I have to offer to you is to SEE you – to hear you and listen to you, to believe in you and encourage you, to give you unconditional love.

This is what is important in my life. My greatest joy is to give acceptance and love to everyone I meet. My personal philosophy which I live by is this: There are no strangers, only friends I haven’t met yet.

There are two kinds of people in life – those who enter a room and say, “Here I am!” and those who enter a room and say, “Oh, there you are!” I want to be counted as a “There you are!” person.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
