Thanks I needed that………….Israel is back on…..

Does anyone remember the old Skin Bracer commercial where a slap across the face was what was needed to bring someone back to reality??? I just got slapped. Thank you Laura!! I truly love you!

I have had someone pull me back from the brink and help me realize that ironically I needed exactly what I said in the blog a couple days ago. Someone to just help me process this all and that alone got me past the meltdown. I needed someone other than me to be the practical, logical person for 5 minutes so I could get back on track. What did it take. Laura saying, I have a blender, I’ll bring it to the hotel! That was all it took. I just needed someone to give me something tangible to turn my logical mind back on and to make me feel I could conquer this and be able to formulate a plan.

I was so overwhelmed by the big picture that I was missing the small details. I am realizing more and more lately that that is what I need more of in my life, both professionally and personally. People who can just help me find solutions when I am over my head. It doesn’t take a lot for me to get back on track. But to now I have had too many people who want to make me feel better or tell me to feel better about it (which is super important too, and I value those people greatly) but not enough of those strategic people who can help me find the plan when I am missing the easy solutions.

Thank you to all my wonderful, supportive caring friends who have been there for me the last couple days. I am truly blessed to have all of you!
