I was reading through a long list of tweets, clicking on various links and scrolling through random blogs, when I saw this comment from Samir Selmanovic on a post by Tony Jones -
"We are not interested in thriving. We are interested in what is real. Death is part of what we do."
That statement just floored me, and I'll be thinking about it for a few days. Especially after several cohort meetings that have felt very full of life, very promising and 'thriving,' it strikes my core to remember that "success" is not what this is all about it. It's about real life. And death is a part of real life.
I hope we can embrace the "death" in our group, as well as the "life" - whatever that may look like.
