But what I find fascinating looking back is THE WAY I was THINKING already. Those four questions........ WOW! Even I'm proud of myself because you can see I was questioning my spirit, my very SOUL, about my ABILITY to get through this stuff. My THINKING was very clear under extreme duress. I was questioning ME, my INNER SELF, later to become my Mister SomeOne Out-There. I could see what was happening with no jobs, no car, no accommodation, no money and onanonanon....... BUT....
That last question to myself "Can I matter?". That question is a very big WOW of which I am soooo proud looking back. For even though I was thinking from under the bottom of my rock, I was already using the EXPERIENCE to DEFINE the rest of my life. I was saying to myself "You get yourself out of this mess and not only comeback BUT 'make a difference' when you do. And you know what dot? I haven't let myself down. My Journey has been long. My Journey has been difficult. BUT I HAVE LEARNED. I HAVE RE-INVENTED. And.....
I WILL MATTER........
CAN I MATTER ?
