So I’ll just tell it to you straight, this past week sucked. My father-in-law Alan died, and it was a shock. My husband, Scott and I were blind-sided by the news and the roller coaster began. All the feelings of sadness, anger, regret, loss… they all come crashing down on you. But hey, we are busy people and there isn’t really time in today’s hectic world to sit around and feel anything at all. We spent a day and a half making flight arrangements, trying to organize schedules and rearranging our lives. It was a mess and super stressful.
My biggest concern was being supportive to Scott in whatever way was best for him. You have to really being attentive when someone is suffering and really ‘listen” to what they need. For me it meant just being in the moment, each day and being that “soft place to fall.”
So I rearranged my world and had to cancel my coaching calls for the week, put an auto reply on my e-mail and turned my thoughts to family. I logged in a couple days later (I know, hyper responsible) and I was stunned at all the emails waiting for me. They weren’t asking me for anything; they were messages of support. “Hey Ghezzi, so sorry, hope you are OK.” “So sorry for your loss, take care of yourself.” “Peace to you and your family, take care.” There were dozens of well wishes and an amazing outpouring of love. No one asked for anything, just gave me love. You guys are the best. I am really passionate about what I do at The Wiz and you KNOW I always have your back, but it was an amazing feeling to know that you have mine. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this difficult time a lot easier. I am truly grateful.
