These days I am…
Feeling… a lot of anxiety. Reverberations from a panic attack last weekend, still trying to get a full breath. This one snuck up on me.
Reaching out… to friends who will understand. Who can coach me through the rough parts, who can help me find the bigger picture, who give me permission to take care of myself.
Writing… about courage! For the upcoming course and getting really excited. It’s such a juicy topic and one that touches all of us. The stories that have come in have astounded me with their beauty and truth.
Practicing… gratitude with a friend via email. Every night, just 3 simple lines.
Appreciating… the sweetness of Ben. How he runs to the bus stop every morning, pants falling low on his hips, backpack bobbing up and down, wildly excited about the big yellow bus that collects him.
Noticing… my fear of misusing my power. That because grownups misused their power with my young self, I am tentative about asserting myself with the littles. Exploring the art of using my power responsibly and with love.
Loving… these videos from two amazing men in the world. Halcyon’s Ted Talk: Gratitude, Gifting and Grandpa and Ze Frank’s An Invocation for Beginnings. Both genius.
