I confess to feeling off my blogging game after being out of town for a few days and Thanksgiving upon us.
It matters that I show up.
It matters that I share something worth reading:
I'm working on taking things lighter, as advised by Virginia, wise and charming 93 year old who lives out at Mrs. Bush's Personal Care Home where Dad resides.
Take things lightly, she told me.
I've been practicing this two word mantra to help me along...
I read this somewhere recently; it stuck.
Whisper it as you examine your face in the mirror, judge nothing, or when you're stuck in traffic, judge nothing, or at the market behind the woman with the overstuffed shopping cart, judge nothing
Whisper it tomorrow over turkey, or tofu
Whisper it with family and friends
Whisper it to yourself
judge nothing judge nothing judge nothing
It's harder than you might think but it's a gift to practice.
It's a freedom piece, a space-maker, a portal.
