Reinvention

Dear Friends,

This year, my theme for this writing is about reinventing oneself.

The past year, for Darlene and I, has included a lot of healing from the grief of losing our oldest son Zach and his incredible partner Kaya. I have used my eyes to write about the grief I have experienced after their losses from our lives and about my losses and gains from having ALS for 11 years. This is now a 275-page memoir that is currently being evaluated by an editor for possible publication.

In July of 2017, Darlene and I began to discuss what we needed in our lives to feel as though we were moving forward. It is my belief that the human spirit needs to see itself in the future to create hope.

During this discussion we both had the desire to rejoin our past lives in which we were involved in helping others through health care professions. Darlene previously did this as a hospital-based dietician and I did this as a community family physician. Both of us took great pleasure from giving support and encouragement to our patients. We decided on that day that training to become ' life coaches' would satisfy our mutual need to help others in the future.

With this decision and a lot of work by Darlene (400 hours plus) we have started co-coaching people who want to grow their lives into something more. We have started practicing what we preach and have incorporated meditation, love for ourselves and others and gratitude into our lives.

The regular practice of all these things have translated to a better quality of life for both of us!

I guess the point of this message is to say that if I as a person who can't move, can't eat and can't breathe on my own, can find PURPOSE and PEACE in my life that this is available to EVERYONE!

This is my 10th Walk for ALS, please support me by either forming a ' fundraising team' under Sutherland Supporters and coming to our Georgetown walk on June 9th or through direct donation to my Walk website.

As always, thanks for your continued support to help end ALS!
