Oh so happy to see you!
I’m so looking forward to these coffee Saturdays leading to new friendships and to the rekindling of communication with some longtime friends.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I’ve now tried walking with my crutches a few times. I fell Thursday morning because I’m still trying to figure out how to do it all with this rod in my arm. I didn’t break anything, so it’s all good….well maybe not “good,” maybe just ok. And ok is enough for now.
If we were having coffee I would try to discern how flexible you were feeling. Could my newest experiences in shamanism sit peacefully between us or would it be an awkward and unwelcome addition? I would try to remember that, what is exciting and thought provoking for me, may not be a comfortable part of our coffee chat for you. Maybe another time.
I would want to know how you’re doing as events in the US reach a crescendo next week. We can all feel the energy building day by day. Politics and the virus make such strange bedfellows! Then add in the most active hurricane season in years and we can all feel hard pressed to find some good news. I’d want to know if you’re finding good news and/or enough things to celebrate.
If we were having coffee I’d say that I believe that, if you can’t find any good news, then that’s your absolute cue from the Universe to CREATE some! We need to, occasionally become the creator of good news!
So what can we do to create some good news? I’d grab my phone, start a draft email (because that’s how I make my lists) and we could start firing some ideas off.
-pay for the order for the car behind us at McDonald’s…give someone some good news
-send a few cards to friends to brighten their day
-send an email or make a call with the sole intention of telling someone how much you appreciate them and why
-buy a big bag of birdseed and dump it out in your yard for any of the neighborhood critters to enjoy…this is especially helpful in winter
-go through your closets and pull out the stuff you don’t need and donate it to a domestic violence or homeless shelter
Or, if we simply lack the energy to create….there’s always nature to go and enjoy to soothe our fatigued souls! Taking a walk or sitting WITH a tree can be wonderfully rejuvenating!
If we were having coffee I’d take my own advice and I’d tell you how much I appreciate you visiting today! I’d tell you that your friendship is important to me because you’re so uniquely you! There’s only one you and I’m so grateful that you’ve chosen to share your youness with me!
If we were having coffee, I’d celebrate you!
I’m glad you’re here!
