As I was organizing and cleaning up yesterday, going through a bunch of old paperwork, I came across the following card that was sent to me in the mail a couple months ago. Although I had forgotten what it said, I took a moment to read it again, and was blown away by the simple beauty of what is written...
To me it's saying, "stop and smell the roses! Enjoy life!" Take it all in--the pleasure, the pain, the little things.
My favorite lines?
" I send you the willingness to sit with any pain and watch it melt and change shape as you soften. I send you a midnight card game with someone you love, and laughter that fills the room."
So I'm passing this wish along to YOU today, as a hope for your day, or for the upcoming holiday weekend.
I send you self care.
