While not a milestone birthday, this one is extra special.
Belated happy birthday, and really nice to meet you today at the shout out. I was touched by your story having experienced a health draw back that almost killed in 2001. I shall write about it too on my Haiku Newsletter coming soon. In answer to your question of what makes me happy is precisely something you also mention: empowerment comes from within. I became a dedicated meditator to get to know my mind and therefore myself. Most challenging and rewarding. Could not go back to the way I lived before I gave myself and my life the attention it needed.
My question is : is it always true that this realization only comes to us humans when we are about to die?
Really happy for you and your family that you survived it. you sounded very upbeat on our zoom gathering. I could not have imagined that all this is so recent in your experience and that you joined the shout out today. Like we say in Ireland, fair play to you! I also am on the third week of COVID-19 and still have trouble breathing although writing and sitting chatting to people is doable, carrying shopping bags and climb stairs is still difficult.
Wishing you a complete recovery and looking forward to walk along side your journey through your newsletter.
Happy belated birthday!
