"Living outside of yourself"

I had lunch today with one of my inspiring friends (Yes! I have several), Glo.  She, Galina and I are in Book Club together and I've known Glo for about six years now.  Galina takes pity on this night blind ol' gal and provides me with transportation and great company to an from our Book Club nights.  Love her.

But today is about Glo.  She has MS but she has taken this by the horns and made it something she does not allow to interfere with her being, her core, her spirit of adventure and lust for life.  Today, she shared with Galina and myself her philosophy of "living outside of yourself".  She believes in being and not allowing her physical to interfere with that.  She recommended a book called, The Art of Doing Nothing and this is one I shall put on my reading list for sure.  She and my friend, Cynthia, who has returned to college at the age of 7* to obtain her master's degree and my heroines.  While Helen Keller, Mother Teresa and Amelia Earhart are all admirable women, give me my friends any day!

Hope you find friends who inspire you, who motivate you and who truly care.  I am blessed to have these women in my life along with countless others who have my back daily and hope they know I have theirs.

There is a saying that says, "Anyone who says they don't need a girlfriend, just hasn't found a good one yet".  My cup over flows.
