Your presence makes a difference, even when you think you are doing nothing.
Here is yesterday’s radio show that I did on Unity Online Radio: http://www.unity.fm/episode/LivingInJoy_111717
I talk about the kindness of strangers.
I tell the story about how in 1998 a friend of mine talked me into doing the NYC marathon – 26.2 miles – by saying “You can do more than you think you are capable of doing” and how I didn’t tell anyone I was doing it because I thought I wouldn’t finish. A few friends that I worked with knew, but I didn’t ask them to come out and support me during the race because I seriously thought I would not cross the finish line. I didn’t want anyone to see me as a failure. I took a subway token in my pocket so I could get back to Park Slope Brooklyn from Central Park when it was all over – IF I FINISHED – and my apartment key. During several places I almost quit, if it was not for the people who didn’t even know me who were there cheering me on the whole way. Most of the spectators had already gone home because now we were moving into the 8th hour, but there were so many people still out on the street, just for those us still out there. I LOVE YOU. So often we think our presence isn’t needed. We think it doesn’t matter. Well, I’m here to tell you IT’S EVERYTHING !!!!!! It does matter. It mattered to me. It kept me going. Thank you, thank you, thank you. My gratitude to you guys in the streets of NYC – in Staten Island, in Brooklyn, in Queens, the Bronx and Manhattan, in the bitter cold when you could have been inside – you were there, giving encouragement and support. I thank you with all my heart. It makes me cry in gratitude – then and now.
You are the true healers of the world: giving of yourself, just because!

There has been so much going on lately that I’ve not been updating my website on a regular basis – but I did want to tell you there are TWO great videos from these past 2 Fridays from our Course in Miracles Group.
Here are the links for them. I think Part 2 might have gotten deleted from Youtube because I said the F-word at the very end of the video and I have a feeling that’s why it got deleted from Youtube. Not sure entirely – but you can still access it through the link below:

If you like what you see and hear here, please tell your friends and family to watch and listen. I appreciate it. A great way to get the word out is through social media – by posting on Facebook & Twitter. You can encourage people to sign up on my mailing list at my website https://www.lisanatoli.com
