I was driving to do a quick errand this afternoon, and I heard these lyrics on the radio. I'm sure it's an old song for some of you, but it was new to me.

"'Cause nobody wants to do it on their own,
And everyone wants to know they're not alone,
There's somebody else that feels the same somewhere,
There's gotta be somebody for me out there." - Nickelback

I thought of all of you, all the friends I've made here at MS, and I felt a surge of joy I'm not sure I've ever experienced. I could FEEL you guys with me! I didn't feel alone! I knew when I came back home, you would be here waiting for me. I suddenly didn't feel self-conscious. I suddenly didn't care what people thought about me. I suddenly just KNEW that it was okay to be myself!

It was an INCREDIBLE feeling! It didn't last too long - maybe 5 minutes or so, but those 5 minutes were the BEST 5 minutes I have had in years!

Thank you - ALL of you! - for those precious 5 minutes. I'm going to treasure them for the rest of my life. smile

Your loving brother,

Bobcat

Bobcat,

It sounds like you had a truly transformative experience. Now you know how it feels, there is a good chance you'll find yourself feeling a version of the same experience (albeit at a different intensity level) in the future. I've had a few of those myself and its great that you realized it's significance *while it was happening*.

A transformative moment and an awareness of it at the time. The only way for it to have been better is if there had been cake! :-)

Thanks, Mark! I'll try not to let go of the experience.

Good early morning Bobcat, Maybe you could purchase the single and play it every so often till it becomes a mantra of sorts. :=)

Thanks for the idea. I'm considering it.

Your friend,
