This week’s Ripple is about conquering fear.
Recently, Values learned that we lost someone who taught support coordination a lot about fear. She was the epitome of the person who was keeping it together by a shoestring, and at any time, we knew that things might fall apart. Her fierce independence and literal demands to us (e.g. “Don’t you DARE call my sister-in-law!”) taught us a lot about the balance between health/safety and right to self-direction. Every time I pulled away from her house, I’d think “Please keep it together”. And she did, until she couldn’t keep it together anymore. And maybe it’s just that simple. Enjoy the read on fear, and if you are feeling particularly brave, break away from the rigors of the day to watch the video link at the bottom. It’ll make your spirit brave.
