Give me a day like this!

This is a liminal day. A sacred day. Today the universe is being generous with revelations. I've been stumbling over truth with every step.

I recall the day when I was 15 that I suddenly realized why self-pity was so destructive***, and the day a few years later when I learned that comparing tragedies with other people was a useless exercise. Today, I have been shown living, breathing examples of old tropes like anything is possible* and to thine own self be true** without even looking for them.

Today I am just beginning to understand that to be the most sincere "me" I can be is to be generous rather than self-indulgent. I am learning for real, instead of just by rote, that a life of loving kindness needs to begin from pure and genuine self love.

Today, I am in a place of deep gratitude for my husband, my family, and all of you.

Nothing measurably important happened today. I had zero clients at work. I did a little shopping. Frankly? I cleaned up some cat puke. But it was a perfect day.

Yay.


* Voice actor Frank Welker has been making a career out of doing cartoon animal voices for decades! Awesome!

** Dancer/choreographer Judith Jamison has a line on something real. At any rate, something I really needed to hear.

ETA*** no, I did not learn to implement this reveleation until years later, thanks.

Furthermore, you knew I was kind of a hippy when you friended me.
