Disclaimer: Work in Progress

By Trish Briggs

My birthday just passed. It doesn’t matter how old I am, I am still a work in progress and proud of it!

Being a work in progress, gives me a sense of youthfulness. I am still learning and growing. I will continue to be the perpetual student full of curiosity. I am open to learning new ideas, new concepts, new knowledge, new perspectives, and new ways of thinking. Not surprisingly in the mix is my love of books. My open-minded attitude reveals deeper levels and means for self-healing. This is all part of being the best version of me that I can be.

My grandmother Nora, lived to her mid-nineties and right until her death, she was still a work in progress. I want to be like she was, still active in learning, always evolving the best version of myself. She truly was all about the journey and not the destination. It is only after I stop feeling this way about life that I suspect that I will begin to feel old. So, why bother going there; I like this exciting place instead!

I am also a perpetual teacher, much to my daughter’s dismay at times. She continuously reminds me to share my experience or my story instead of imparting the facts. “People want to read your stories! The lessons are within the stories.” She is right. I do love sharing any new information that I have processed and how it impacts me, so that it can impact you, the reader. I will continue to attempt for the most part, to do it in story format. When I forget, Leila will remind me!

I saw the following disclaimer in a book on Theta Healing that was novel and intriguing in its perspective. I want to share.

“Even though I am sharing this information with you I don’t accept any responsibility for the changes that may occur from its use. The responsibility is yours, a responsibility you assume when you realize that you have the power to change your life, as well as the lives of others.” (Stibal, 2020, Theta Healing: You and The Creator)

That is one disclaimer that stuck with me because it was not written out of fear of reprisal. It was written out of love for us, the readers. The disclaimer acknowledges that every new piece of information, whether it be from books or interactions with others, changes us, and if we are willing to let it, we can evolve.

Ahh, so, let us all be works in progress. Cheers!
