I have not had a chance to sit down and write anything in the past two days because I have been filling myself up with so much self love that I did not want to even take one second away from time with those I love.
This weekend I had a birthday party for myself. The time was spent with dear friends and loved ones engaging in great conversation, sharing stories, food, and creating a sacred space to make soul collage cards and candles for each other. It truly was a beautiful experience seeing others get into their own space and seeing what manifested with all the love in the room. Some of my friends who have a difficult time with art because of their critic created and liked what they made…it was such a gift seeing this and having those I love touch on a real and intimate level.
I am grateful for my friends and the community I have built in Petaluma in the past 6.5 years I have been here. I slowed down and took each moment in, and I truly see the gift in each moment this weekend. Each one is such a precious gift. For this I am grateful.
