Expanding My Horizons

The comment of “I want to expand my horizons” was made by a client regarding a home bound life.  This persona is someone whom I thought would die within a week of knowing them.  It is now over 10 months and they are alive and wishing to do more in life.

What is more?  To dress, to stand, to raise arms and to get outside with the cat and their spouse as much as possible.  Is this not precious???  The horizon is the basics of life.  The horizon is the simplicity of caring for some things on their own.

What is your horizon?  What beauty there is in doing a little more of life by your own strength.  I can not get away from the thought of HOW HUMBLING!  What a goal…simplicity is HUGE.
