The time it took me to fully recover from my concussion was much longer than I thought – almost three months. Some people tell me that is fast. I got way behind on my work, but in a way, way ahead in my life.
I am still moving forward differently, more wholefullly. It’s as if the pace I had to adopt while recovering allowed me to recover a part of myself that I had lost a long time ago – or never really had. I do feel that I am more willing to step back and take a break versus pushing myself. I am more cognizant of watching where I am going – not walking and texting!
I implemented a different way of being accountable to myself, for myself. I now periodically ask myself how can I listen more deeply to myself – to what goes on within and around me? How do I commit to myself – what is healthy and whole for me as a leader, as someone who serves my constituents, as a servant leader? How do I love, honor and obey myself? I cannot really do this for another unless I know how to do this for myself.
How has a significant event in your life changed the trajectory of how you move forward? How can you retain that the further you get away from the event?
