If it's okay with y'all, I think this is the best enneagram song yet! 😉

To know and love ourselves and others well
Is the most difficult
And meaningful work we'll ever do

Sleeping at Last ~ Atlas: Nine

Yes, it's finally here!

I live about 8 miles west of NYC and it's a pretty tight little town. Not a lot of breathing room between houses.
Last year we discovered an old, abandon train track surrounded by forest in our town. It feels like a secret little nature oasis out here and I love it. 💚

A really great benefit to having a 5yo is that you can just run your problems by them and get stellar advice.

Me: what do you do when people disagree with you and want to argue?

5yo: nothing!

Me: why nothing?

5yo: because they're just gettin' me all weird


It's okay if you fall apart sometimes.
Tacos fall apart and we still love them.

"As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has - or ever will have - something inside that is unique to all time. It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression." - Fred Rogers

Coming from a cultural and religious climate that conditions us to believe that we live in scarcity rather than abundance may make us feel like there is not enough room for us to speak, to emote, or to just be our beautiful selves. But there is room, dear one.
Say what you need to say.
Feel what you need to feel.
Be who you are.
There is room at the table for you and more.

i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt?

I think this is a sign that I've finally given the right side of my brain some space to breath and imagine and create.

I just dreamed up a scifi/horror story plot and I don't know what to do with it. 🤔

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

We all walk around wanting to be seen and loved. My hope and “spiritual work” is to learn how to be the seer and the lover.

And then this happened.... But it made me laugh and she was already telling me how we could clean it up and go shopping for new eggs.

Being a work at home parent is hard sometimes. Yesterday and today have been particularly stressful. The emotions that have been brewing finally spilled over after a really shitty phone call.
My 2yo brought me one of her loveys and gave me a hug. 😭💜

Y'all, I'm not a runner. As much as I want to be. I'm just not.
I heard once on a podcast that you have to pretend you're being chased by someone.
Well, that doesn't really work if your default is to just play dead at any sight of a threat.

The 2yo turned on the disco light and music and grabbed my hand and said "let's dance". So guess we are starting today with a dance party. I'm not complaining 💃

I offer you peace
I offer you love
I offer you friendship
I see your beauty
I hear your need
I feel your feelings

Everyday we invite others to participate in our lives, our conversations, and our routines. We also accept invitations to participate in other people's lives, conversations, and routines. Pay attention to the invitations you are extending and accepting. Whether they are wholesome, healthy, valuing of yourself and the lives around you or destructive, unhealthy and devaluing of yourself and others.

Being a parent of a young child means that sometimes you find yourself walking in from the rain drenched because the one umbrella you brought to share, must be held by them, and they didn't even keep it over their head. 🤷🏼‍♀️

NZ shooting 

I went to a vigil in Nashville to remember and mourn the lives taken in New Zealand. I met a Muslim single mom who is coming over to dinner soon with her son.

Thought I’d ask on here if anyone else has been to a vigil for the victims. If so I’d love to see your pictures, videos, stories etc.
