I live in a wonderful, glorious and magically beautiful country. I am grateful to have lived a life here and not there.
We sometimes forget these little things, and then somethings happens that wrenches us from our foundations; reminds us that we are not as stable as we first thought.
I am grateful that I can reflect and grow - learn from other people's mistakes as well as my own. I have a unique opportunity to influence and inspire, to open up a world of new horizons to the array of people I see everyday.
I am grateful for friends, who did not misinterpret the wave, who saw it for what it was and threw out the buoy, reeled me in; allowed to me to feel safe enough to take the next tentative step.
I am grateful that I can look back and ask, 'who am I responsible for?' As opposed to others asking, 'who is responsible for this?'
That is my homework, to find the answer. As soon as I've worked it out I will share with you all.
Thanks, once again, for your invaluable support.
