“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. "
-- Melody Beattie

During the recent National Football Association Hall of Fame ceremonies, I had an opportunity to listen to heart-felt, insightful, and funny speeches. However, what stood out was one speaker's introduction of and inductee. The introduction took away the attention and thunder from the inductee and made the introduction speech more about the speaker than the inductee. The introducer's speech was twice as long as the award winner's speech, and I could see audience members grow weary of the introducer as he sapped the energy from the ceremony before the hall of fame inductee even said the first word of his speech.

In the last couple of weeks my body has decided to remind me of my aging physicality. Translation - I’ve been on the mend from lower back pain. Fortunately for me, my very kind-hearted and thoughtful spouse arranged for a massage therapy session to aid my pain relief.
During the session, my very proficient and wise therapist gave me much food for thought. During the session she gave me what she thought was a very simple instruction - relax, go limp like a Raggedy Ann Doll, and let her guide my healing. For a moment I seemed unable to process her request. I had a clear intellectual understanding yet at the same time emotionally this seemed to be a tall order to fill. All she had asked was for the two of us to collaboratively work together to heal my body. She shared with me that I was not her only client who was hesitant to comply with her request. As a firm believer in asking better questions in order to arrive at better answers in life I asked myself "Why did my auto-pilot immediately register resistance and discomfort?"
There are as many fingerprints in the world as there are reasons why at one time or another we may have greeted a "guiding hand' with resistance and discomfort. It could be because we thought accepting help is a sign of weakness, or if we let our guard down we'll be too vulnerable, or worst yet why would someone want to help me? This is a question only you can answer for yourself. What can we enjoy when we learn to let go and accept a helping hand:
The next time you are asked to relax and aid you're healing, my hope is you will enthusiastically say "thank you" to your escort and latch onto the hands that heal.
