I am loving the weather again today. I covered up my seed pots last night – green popping up in most of the pots already - yeah … hoping for not too many more frosts. Major thunderstorms and tornado warnings right now. Hoping for the noise, the wind and the rain … no damaging tornados. I love storms.
Off and on all day today, I kept having thoughts of ‘why do we stay separate, rather than connected’. Much of this [in my thoughts] is, most likely, coming from a variety of avenues. Last evening I edited a paper written by a former student of mine – it was such a positive piece about being true to yourself and caring for / about others. Yesterday, I had a long, intense conversation with my heart friend, Nelson. We always ‘solve the world’s problems’ … though, of course, the solutions never get further than between us. Today, while out doing many errands, I heard/witnessed a few interactions that left me struggling with the challenge of ‘should I say something’ – or should I just walk away.
When my kids were young, I know I must have embarrassed them when I did approach people when they were doing something demeaning [dark] to another.
Tonight, while enjoying the sound of the wind chimes, rain and a yummy seafood salad, I began to float back to September 12th, 2001. Driving to work that morning, I was [of course still shook up and sad, confused] happily amazed at how there didn’t seem to be any honking of horns, cutting people off, yelling on the roads. When I stopped for coffee, everyone was filled with people connecting. ‘How are you’ – ‘Have a good day’. These feelings/actions should be an everyday occurrence – right?
I am not really sure what it is I am ranting about today … many of my thoughts and feelings seem to be [still] locked up inside of me … At the risk of sounding like Pollyanna Pattie [which many have accused me of being over the years], I believe deep in my heart that if we stopped to smell the roses [paid attention to what is happening around us – with others – with ourselves], world peace would be right around the corner. After all, we are all an integral part of an amazing world.
Since things are still stirring inside of me – I’ll shut up now … and talk of the beautiful day for which I am so grateful.
I met a new fam today. Beauteous Mom and 2 amazing young men that I soon will be working with. So wonderful to hear them speak of ‘light vs. darkness’ and feeling their hearts. Lovely time.
Domestically – yuck – I cleaned the home and did the laundry – did the grocery shopping and a few other errands … I so need an assistant. Not because I don’t have the time to do it myself … just isn’t what I love to do – and I am trying to spend each moment doing what I love to do. I so do love it when it is finished … accomplishment.
Taylor and I accomplished much yesterday. Invitations created and ready to print on Friday – yeah – lots of planning/figuring out done as well. Things are coming together so beautifully for the dreamy wedding day.
I love this story ....
I hope everyone is having a beautiful start to a wonderful week.
Until tomorrow xo♥
