We are all recovering from something.
Life. Love. Lack. Loss.
Not to mention all those big and small “oops” moments that linger long after we’ve fled the scene.
But through it all – in the midst of it all even – we rarely (and actually never, I suspect) are without help.
Better yet, most often it is not even a matter of locating a guide to help us get from Point Then to Point Now and beyond.
Rather, it is more simply a matter of becoming aware of the help that is already close at hand so we can then make the choice to accept it.
Case in point – right now, stop and think of one situation where, for a time at least, you really, honestly, thoroughly believed, “No way, no how am I going to get through this one.”
Then think of one or more of the folks who deserve at least partial credit for leading, guiding, or dragging you successfully and safely from then to now.
This is what is called “mentoring”.
