Now THIS makes my heart sing!

Unless you have also had illness abruptly take away your career, your mobility, your social contact and your voice, you may not understand how important it is to feel like you make a difference in the world. Your scope narrows. I don’t set my sights on trying to be everything to everyone anymore, trying to multitask every moment of the day and accomplish everything perfectly, never letting one of those spinning plates drop… Now, I hope I can make someone laugh or manage to clean a toilet every once in a while. Making a ripple in the universe, no matter how small, fills me with immeasurable joy. Thank you, M., for the note and the book. ❤
