I've spent a couple of months preparing for an evening Relief Society presentation
The theme . . . . . .
Emotional Resiliance: What Are My Choices?
On my way to the delight of teaching, I got to work with one of my weaknesses
My multi-variant brain . . .
. . . .
flickers of stories
hard earned lessons
lots of pieces
Once the theme was set in my mind
it seemed related ideas
vistas . . . .
the note pile grew thick
I LOVE the topic . . . . .but the organizing process . . . . . .not so much
outline . . . . . . an excruciating process for me
Something I've learned:
My very beautiful brain that serves me so well as a counselor and listening friend
taking in clues . . .sorting . .sensing . . . noticing . . . reflecting
well . . . . .
it cries out in pain when required to do some linear tasks
Arg . . . .Don't give up, LD!
You know the scripture . . . . weakness + humilty = strength
all is lassoed
Ah..... that feels good
Presenting was fun
A fine learning evening with wonderful women
And an invitation to present to another group is on the calendar
Have you ever noticed
that one of your gifts can also contain
the soft underbelly of one of your weaknesses?
