Have I got what it takes to write a blog post that’s worthwhile enough for me and for you?
Have we got what it takes to …
- make it through today,
- make it through this month,
- make it through next year,
- connect with each other,
- treat ourselves and others with respect,
- keep our senses of humor,
- be strong,
- be weak,
- have all our feelings,
- accept what we can’t change,
- change what we can,
- have the wisdom to know the difference,
- show up,
- be gentle, and
- tell the truth?

My cardiac electrophysiologist, Dr. N.E. Mark Estes, also has got what it takes to make the list of top doctors in Boston Magazine this year. Dr. Estes — who says he thinks I can live (almost) forever — has got what it takes to have conversations like this with me, yesterday:
Dr. Estes: Ann, you look better today than I’ve ever seen you.
Me: You always say that!
Dr. Estes: But I always mean it.
