Over the weekend, I participated in a review of the Landmark Forum in Scottsdale, AZ.
To be really straight, I registered to accomplish is finding the man of my dreams and growing my business. What I actually accomplished was discovering my endless capacity for love and the deep appreciation I have for human beings and whatever it is they are dealing with.
My father was a Tuskegee Airman, one of the original Freedom Fighters. He was incredibly loving, brilliantly creative, generous and funny. Over the last 10-years of his life, he developed Dementia and his health diminished. During the Forum, I saw how over the years, as my dad’s health declined, I reduced the intensity of the love I have for my dad – just a little. I made sure I would not completely fall apart when he died.
A year-and-a-half ago, I flew back to Philadelphia to be with my step-mom for several days before my dad passed. I even made sure I talked to every one of my family members. There was nothing left unsaid and I did not fall apart. I also chose not go back for his memorial service; and up until Saturday night — I had not watched his memorial video.
On Sunday morning of my Landmark Forum, I watched the video. I cried and allowed myself to fall deeply in love with my dad in a way I had not felt since I was a little girl.
I also saw that I am the kind of woman who had a super-hero for a father, who allowed me to be a super hero for him.
For almost 2-years now, my writing has been stifled. Words were not coming easily and I was truly worried about having everything I said be scrutinized. Today — Sharing this intimate part of my life with you was as easy as breathing!
My concern for what people may think of me, has disappeared and I am free to invite you in to my life!
