A client of mine sent me an article to post at his website. He had a heart attack and nearly died. He was writing about how this was a growth experience for him.

“Growth” was my word of the year for 2022. I didn’t intend to spend the year feeling dizzy and weak. That is what has happened. That and having 50+ medical tests. It has rather felt as though growth was an ironic goal, not a real one. Certainly not a realistic one.

But perhaps there has been some growth. I have learned to accept help, to accept physical limitations with equanimity, to take care of myself.

I made the trip to Germany and established better habits of health and housekeeping.

There’s a reasonable amount of time left in the year, and perhaps more growth opportunities.

In spite of my health challenges.
