First of all, my congrats with everyone else to Ann, who's loving life at the moment. Very cool.
I also think Ann provides us with a good illustration of how the connection dot exists, and stays stable no matter what someone is up to.
Think back a couple of months. Ann was having a really, really stressful time. In all kinds of transition, lots of things up in the air, many significant changes afoot... And (the good news was), she felt we were all connected to her. And we were! We were all right there, supporting her in her work, staying steady while she endured and came through the transition, wishing her well, and liking her too!
Things began to settle down, and while they did, Ann continued to feel connected to us and to trust that connection. And we continued to be connected to her. Things were getting a bit easier in her life and we were glad and relieved for her. Our connection to her stayed exactly where it had been though. The dot didn't budge. The dot wasn't related to how difficult or easy or in between things were for Ann at the moment, right? Right.
Now, things are rocking for Ann. Her work on herself is paying off in spades, she's moving along at terrific speed in her relationship with herself. AND, her connection with us hasn't changed at all. We're all happy for her, really happy, as all the comments attest to. And we get to feel like we're all growing together and deepening our connections (knowing each other better and better over time). But, just because Ann isn't having such a hard time anymore doesn't mean our connection dot with her has moved. It's stayed right where it was- very high on the connection chart... Where, by the way, it will remain, no matter what Ann does or what kind of time she's having some other week.
How's that for an illustration? Thanks Ann! And keep up the good work- Ann, and all of you in our very fabulous and supportive community!
