For Mother’s Day, I’m (re) sharing a story I wrote in 2017 about my mom, a righteous badass. We can all learn a lot from her. About hard work and persistence. But also about how quitting can paradoxically get us ahead. And how this ride we call life isn’t about us—a realization that allows us to ride it better.
I looked inside your archive and found that I'd not read this yet. What a great story and tribute to your mother. I'm writing a piece on courage this week and your work is what's inspiring be to do so.
My world is shrinking and getting out of my comfort zone is the answer. Thanks for a great read, and the work you're doing.
❤️🙏🏽 this was really beautiful. Thanks for sharing
Thank you for sharing some about your Mom, Michael. I really enjoyed reading it. Happy Mother's Day to her.
I didn't expect to be so drawn in to this story about your mom! I am in such awe of fiercly independant women. Your mom is on the far end of the contiuum. How inspiring!
