What’s in an egg?
A lot — especially, maybe, for Josh recently.
The last 7+ months have shown me many things…it’s confirmed what I believe and what I’m willing to fight for, it’s confirmed the healing and lifting power in supporting others (what some of us call business, yet is much more) and it’s confirmed or continued to increase a gratitude felt for the capacity built (through my own tough times) to be able to park my sh*t to be able still share kindness with others…
It’s been a time of remembrance.
Really though, it feels like it’s the first time I’ve ever *really* known it ~> it’s the simplest things and ways of BEing that make a day, friendship or my romantic relationship, for example, feel great and, in turn, makes us feel great, too…
Right now it’s our relationships we need to continue to pour our hearts into ~ especially the relationships that give back to us, lifting us vs. depleting us (p.s. note this and know it’s ok to say goodbye or I can’t right now to the ones that deplete).
Relationships — what we can control — are what makes the ‘uncontrollable’ in our country or world, feel even a smidge better. And it’s these created moments that eventually give us the stamina to get back out…
We all still have work to do to that end, of course, but we’re more able to affect the greater good when we focus, too, on creating inside of our homes what we want to see outside of them.
This egg is one of two I made for Josh with his avocado toast.
Truly, for all the complexity we make of life, returning to the basics of cooking with a slowness and with love (goodness, I love it), writing notes, sending cards, taking daily walks, kissing Nolan and Josh on the head, forehead or cheek multiple times a day as I walk by their “offices” returns life to its most connected and peaceful form.￼￼
It returns us to the energy we feel has, maybe, been sucked out of our souls lately.
In essence, returning to the “egg” or to that simplicity — the first domino in the chain — of focusing on home life. A life, maybe, that we might have forgotten much about because it was all moving too fast before, feels the start of something…it feels like and IS creation.
Let us do our part outside our front doors (always) — VOTE — and right now and today, love up on your people, your friends, and your family, in ways that bring *you* joy.
Consider what they love, absolutely, but don’t forget yourself in the process: do [more of] what you love in loving them, too, so you do double the good.
Love them up so simply and may the same be cooked up for you in the process, as well as many times in return…
Let’s make happiness your business by creating your authentic brand…
To the best of the rest of your life.
Life is good,
