In my ALP, we had a joke that Brandon was like Jesus… he talked about “making time” to do things, and it felt literal, like he was somehow creating more time. Tonight I had the thought, “I didn’t have time during the day to read the blog posts of others”. This is an untruth. I could have made time. And I am really looking forward to reading those posts in the morning (I am prioritizing sleep; I also thought tonight, “why don’t I sleep more?” I’m making it a self care goal!
I spent today with my mom on her birthday. We drank Chai tea and we were kind and colored together and talked. We waited in the hospital while her sister had a large tumor removed and learned together that it was benign. It was a good day. I funneled love. I think that, as with all things, when you start to practice something it gets easier.
I also spoke with my sister, and noticed that when I hold back, the magic is missing. When I offer support, share about my life, and create intimacy we both open up and sprinkle everything with sister love fairy dust.
