I saw Bob Carey on a morning new program the other day--and he is my new favorite hero. Far too many friends and family members have had to face the journey through breast cancer. The Tutu Project -- Bob and his pink tutu are raising money for women with breast cancer. What began simply enough has transformed into HOPE and inspiration. I hope you will visit The Tutu Project website and Facebook page. I promise you will marvel and laugh--then please pass it on.
The important thing to remember is that sharing hope needs to grow out of reality. For hope to be real it must grow out of where we are at the moment. We have to be honest with ourselves in order to be helpful to others. So, if I am in a vulnerable place, my openness about that vulnerability is an opportunity for others to find hope in their own situations. We begin where we are recognizing that how we feel now will not last forever. I remind myself, on days where life feels dark or impossible, that I am perhaps only one short bend in the road before the well known light at the end of the tunnel shines in my face.
