Be someone’s security blanket when theirs is in the wash. Richelle E. Goodrich, author
On a recent cruise up the east coast from New Jersey to Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, we saw several tugboats at work. Tugs push or pull vessels restricted in a narrow canal or crowded harbor. They also help ships that are unable to move by themselves such as barges or disabled ships.
We all need a virtual tugboat in our life when we are in a “narrow” place or “crowded” with negative thoughts and feelings. We especially need the tug of a strong arm to help us with we feel unable to move forward on our own or we’re disabled by grief or guilt.
Affirmation: I accept the help of tugboats in my life.
Coaching question: Who are the tugboats in your life? When have you been a tugboat in the life of another?
