gratitude monday 3/24

I am grateful. I am grateful to notice that I am enjoying my life more and more. And something I thought would never happen for me is beginning to happen: I used to have a tortured agonized time doing everything and then enjoy it in retrospect. Not so any more. I had a weekend with lots of lovely events and I enjoyed them—mostly—while they were happening.

Don’t get me wrong. I still had moments of ick. Worry. Stress. Boredom. Self-centered whatever. Wondering when it would be over. Wondering why I wasn’t getting enough attention. But they were just moments. They didn’t consume me the entire time I was at the event. Instead I actually experienced fun and friendship and good connection right then and there.

Freedom! I am so grateful.

I am grateful for both Ostara rituals I attended. For meeting some of the women in the coven of the divine feminine. Lovely women. Powerful group. I am lucky.

And for a walk by the bay on a beautiful sunny day.

For wildflower seeds. For the initiation of the wildflower priestesses. For easter eggs filled with good wishes. For the power of intention.

For celebrating with my sister. For seeing Clitoris: A Celebration. For wonderful women all over my life. And wonderful men.

I am grateful for completing my tax prep. Phew. It gets copied and mailed out tonight.

Life is good. I am blessed. And so it is.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
