“…but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”
Today I am grateful… that taxes are done and I didn’t have to pay in to State and Federal.
I procrastinated because I was afraid of just that… paying more taxes.
The only time I actually cried was at the end of the process when I had to check the box “Lawrence Preisler does not have a current Driver’s License or State ID.” Unless one can drive a car on the other side, but guessing he doesn’t need one now…
That driver’s license meant the world to him. Freedom to travel. To go. When he started losing his eyesight we went to get it renewed. He faked the eyesight test. Totally faked his way through it. He knew he wouldn’t be driving, I knew he wouldn’t be driving, but he had to have that license. It meant that he could drive if he wanted to. If he needed to. It meant freedom.
Now he is truly free.
For that I am grateful, and sad at the same time.
But no longer in pain.
“Turn your wounds into wisdom.”
― Oprah Winfrey
A friend of mine, Lara, in Tom Zuba’s workshop that I am attending, made an astute observation over the weekend. She was reflecting on peace vs. pain vs. sadness. Something I had never thought of.
I love it when new ideas click! Like a ton of bricks.
Pain or Peace? The choice is mine…
Sadness vs. Pain
Why do we treat them the same, when they are not, really?
I am grateful for new knowledge that helps my healing process!
