Day 52 ~ The Power of Touch

At 7:40 this morning, I thought I wasn’t going to make it through the day.
 
I was late to set up for the presentation I was giving. I was late for my colleagues who were waiting for the registration materials I was bringing. When I got to the registration table and saw the state of the aforementioned materials as I put the container down, I almost blacked out.
 
What saved me was the touch of a friend’s hand.
 
She said, “Leave this stuff with us. We got it.”
 
My colleagues all looked at me and said, “We got it. Go get your program started.”
 
The day looked different at 7:43. At I headed out to my classroom, I felt the weight of three city buses drop off my shoulders.
 
The program was wonderful; I was on a total high.
 
The rest of this beautiful sunny day rolled right out after that; the impact of the program stayed with me all day.
 
The funny thing is, as I wrap my up my day, my perspective has changed. The program high is fading to a warm glow and something else remains constant in its impact.
 
It’s the power of that touch and the support of my friends.

    • It really is a circle, isn’t it, Dumont? Thank you for your lovely comment. I’m so happy you’re enjoying my book! I’ve only recently come to realize that writing it (and it was my first one) actually started me on this road to Powerful Presence. And there’s another circle!
