Good morning! Do you ever have those weekends where you do so much, but really nothing at all? That was the type of weekend I had. As I am reflecting over the past few days, I feel so full. So full of gratitude and joy, so full of compassion and empathy, so full I could actually burst into tears, and have a few times. I don't really feel the want to do a complete weekend recap, but simply to express how full I feel. I am definitely one of those people that "feel all the feelings," and while in the past I tried to hide my sensitivity and emotions, I now embrace them. It feels so much more authentic that way.
Anyway, my weekend was spent with family and friends, some of whom I haven't seen in years. It felt wonderful to connect and have conversations that we normally may not have had if certain circumstances hadn't come up. It was great to be of support to one another, and know that love is a bond that we all have in common.
It was joyous and fun to frolic at the beach with the dogs, and realize that nothing but the present moment matters. Any stress dissipated, and all that I felt was joy. Dogs and the ocean do it for me every time!
While at church on Sunday, I felt an immense amount of gratitude and connection. The community at our center is less like group of people that comes together on Sunday, and more like a giant family that connects with one another throughout the week and on Sunday. The music was beautiful, the message was phenomenal, and the connection was so loving. Really grateful for our church!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend doing whatever it is that brings you happiness! Leaving you with the affirmation above for the week, and sending you all lots of love!
