If you read last week’s post about meeting Simon – I think you will be very interested to find out part two of the story which you will find around minute 4:30 of the below video. Thank you to everyone who reached out to send both him and I love and encouragement – we both appreciated it so much.
I have created a Kudoboard for Simon and if you would like to put a note of support on there, that would be so great. And/or maybe there is someone you know that would appreciate a KudoBoard. I felt so hopeful and uplifted just reading it – perhaps it might fill your cup too. People are good.
I’m pretty sure this is just the middle of Simon’s story; for now, Simon says he is okay, starting his life anew in Toronto, and was moved to tears by the abundance of support from so many strangers. He asked how I find so many kind people; I told him they are everywhere and that I found one on the beach in California. People are kind.
Lastly, I just want to acknowledge the courage that Simon had to reach out and trust a stranger in his time of need. We could all take a lesson from courage like that. People are courageous.
And then there is Lucille Proulx a ninety-year-young, spitfire that I interviewed for Seaside Magazine – if you think are you too old for anything, I think she may just change your mind! You can enjoy some more inspiration here. #Unbelievable
I’m turning this next part over to a reader, whose story is all too common. I am printing this with permission but anonymously, as requested. She writes…
“One of the hardest issues I have in my life is the doubt that “reality” (as defined by our culture) puts as restraints on my JOY of life. You see, my JOY in life is giving to others- Silly simple things mostly- a jar of homemade soup, a book, whatever. But all too often I have struggled with a very similar thought like you had, “Am I being played?”
