As I get older, I figured that it is good policy to leave the office and gain important perspective. I plan and I arrange for staff to take over my cases when I am gone, I kennel my 3 dogs, I pack and arrange for people to teach my classes. Then I leave. It's not that I don't enjoy myself; I always do. I gain perspective that I am replaceable, that the world will continue and I have no control (during this trip NY had another terrorist attack). It also reminds me that there are beautiful places away from home; it is still not my home.
Home is where the relationships are...my family, friends, my VMC family, my clients, my furry pups, my students that I teach. And once again I am hit with gratitude that this is what I return to....despite DCD and their desire to limit, degrade or even eliminate VR services, this is where I belong.
So again we face another battle with DCD regarding the future of VR services. With renewed energy, we move forward and face that "perspective" next week. With all of us banding together we cannot fail.
With perspective and gratitude,
