    Dec 27 2011: I am grateful for the change in mindset I am going through over the past few years (and I am grateful to see others who are already in it and also going through it). As a surgeon in my old mindset, I saw less and less hope, increasing fear and frustration in my profession and in the world. In a renewed mindset, I see hope and opportunity for change. I see love everywhere and I am driven less and less by fear.

      Thank you for expressing your feelings so candidly. Your words resonated in me as I am struggling with aging parents with old mindsets. I hope that like you, they will be helped to see life positively with the help we are giving them.

      I thought you would enjoy this quote, being a surgeon.
