Since I don’t blog on weekends, my Friday posts are for sharing blessings I’ve received throughout the week, anything that touches me in some way—large or small.
My friend Heidi sent me an email Wednesday about a video that is so fraught with meaning. It gave me enormous insight into who and what I am, and my role in conjunction with you and the rest of humanity. Life’s dynamics are awesome.
Published by TED, their description of the video is as follows:
“Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened—as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding—she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another."
This isn’t just a story about having a stroke; it’s so much more than that. It’s about the magnificence within us and our connectivity to that same splendor in others.The video is rather lengthy in respect to today’s demand for instant gratification, but I was willing to spend 18:44 minutes of my life watching it. I hope you will, too. I couldn’t get the video to post properly so here’s the link.
Just existing is a blessing for which I am grateful. Life is indeed extraordinary!
