My friend Katherine is SO SMART…#1

This is a new occasional column, suggested by Katherine, herself.  Every time I need some really good and practical advice along with some heartfelt compassion, Katherine offers it up.  We both agree that all this good advice could be shared with a larger audience, so here we go.  Installment #1 of “My Friend Katherine is SO SMART…”

Katherine reads my blog faithfully.  I know that a couple of blood relatives read it regularly (Thanks Mom and Cousin Stan.  Dad, do you read my blog?).  Katherine gets big friend-points for reading and commenting on my posts.  After I wrote “Stroll around Mt. Existential,” she had this advice to offer:

Amanda, maybe you could apply what you learned from your meditation practice and makeover some of the other things that you are doing so that they aren’t such a struggle and so that the goal is more attainable. 

That is so insightful.  I claim not to like things that are hard, but then I set myself up with challenges that really suck the joy out of the process.  And isn’t it all about the process?

Good one, Katherine.

  1. Oh dear! Being expected to say something insightful on a regular basis may be MY unattainable goal…. Maybe we should open it up to “My friend —- is SO SMART.” Just to, you know, take the pressure off.
