45 & SURPRISE
So many messages of love and support from old friends and new friends. Grateful.
Spent the morning teaching and in the knowing now more than ever that I am doing what I am meant to do on this planet and that more is coming. I’m ready. Grateful.
Attended a “You Are An Amazing Woman” luncheon at @cam_raleigh and felt so honored to be in the room with such a talented, powerful and engaged group of women. The theme of the luncheon was “Believe, Belong and Be a Badass.” I couldn’t agree more. Grateful.
Took an hour for self-care at my acupuncturist’s office. My heart chakra needed some serious cowbell after this election and she got my shit sorted out. Grateful.
Spent the rest of the day with my family. The theme of their gift was “Things for the wandering spirit.” I know I’m gone more than most Moms and I have an unconventional way of showing up in the world. But the universe had my back in bringing me KJ and Grif and I bow down to the power of God for that brilliant move. Grateful.
So at the end of the day, this girl is blessed. And she knows it. And will do everything she can to honor everything she has been given.
I didn’t see it coming. Honestly. This Lot orchestrated one epic night. The food, Happy + Hale of course. The venue Everyday Magic(as Cherry said if you were a store Carrington, this would be you). The art and attention to detail from walking me in to walking me out... pure magic.
Here’s the thing about family... There is the family that is woven into your being by DNA and then there is the family that is woven into your being by Magic. The latter definitely applies to this crew. In the knowing of them my heart holds thousands of stories all interwoven with love. They are a part of an ever-growing quilt that blankets my heart and shields me from night. There is so much work to do in this world and I'm blessed I get to do it with them.
I told them last night that in the past month I’ve felt utterly off course from the road to joy… living without a clue about how to feel happy again. Purposeful, yes. Grateful yes. But happy.. I couldn’t see the way. But tonight.. each one of them were integral in my returning to joy and I walked out of EM with a REAL smile on my face, which felt fanfuckingtastic..
I am truly IN LOVE with each and every one of them and so grateful they are a part of my family.
