gratitude monday 6/9

Good God! I managed to have a completely miserable day on Saturday. Amazing how expert I am at complete bitter misery! Unbefreakinlievable.

More on that in a minute.

I am so grateful that the virus that invaded my body up and left in two days. I am grateful for the tea made of elderberries, elder flowers and lemon balm. And for lomatium extract. A wild ride. Allowed me to spend hours and hours on the dance floor on Saturday and Sunday.

I am so grateful for the dancers who came to the workshop. And for the great dances I got to have.

I am grateful to be able to laugh at myself…when I was driving home last night I *way belatedly* remembered my commitment to *live my life as a coach 24/7*. I so did not do that on Saturday. I so hated reality, hated what was, resented my assigned class placement, that I had a torturous day. Busy busy in my mind wondering and worrying about everything that was none of my business. Ow. It hurt.

Protective and transformative. Helped me to step into a different context. Helped me MYOB. Helped me have a much much better day.

Today I get to morph back over to diurnality. (Oh good, I just checked and it looks like diurnality is a word. At least per Wikipedia.)

I drew the Moon card in my one-card reading last night. To me this offers a context to be contemplative and internal. An invitation I will attempt to accept today. As always the world is a better place when I keep my big mouth shut. Especially when still suffering from a too-much-gossip, too-much-negativity hangover.

Blessed be!

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.
