White water rapids...
Father and I went for a weekend trip... I posted about this before... was fun times...
We had a few people in the boat (at the beginning!) and during a tumultuous time one guy popped out of the boat..
We hauled him back into the boat after the rapids- and before the next set of rapids... he had lost his glasses, sucked in some water... to his credit, he shook it off... his friends nicknamed him 'Fish' for the rest of our trip...
When I am feeling under water, like these days, I think of the people in my world and whether they say 'stop Dieter, take pause, be cautious, breathe, rest' or if they cheer me on and encourage and support me... it is time to lean in, compartmentalize, excel at what i do... after this MBA ride I may rest and breathe and take pause...
I am writing at Starbucks while my mother babysits, my wife sleeps, and my boys play in the castles in our basement... special times...
