Speaking of joy...
Look at these two.
Who think they are soooooo funny.
Just don't tell them that will you?
So funny how a little prank like this can make everything feel so... "normal" I guess! Just a little moment to laugh and breathe and have some fun with some colleagues who love me at my worst and my best is something I am grateful for this week.
Leaning into my bottom hands (as defined by the amazing Dr. Jody Carrington HERE) has never been more important to me than the past 8 months. Nothing like a little global pandemic to remind you of what and more importantly, WHO matters most. (Even the ones who play lame tricks on you when they know you need a smile...)
What I have learned this week? I need to take any little chance I can get to connect with my bottom hands. When I don't feel like it? That is when I need to the most.
I am grateful for incredible family members and colleagues and friends that help me stay true to myself and to challenge me when they know I can do better. From the Mom who knows you need some fresh air and invites you on a walk (thank you Mom!) to the pal who listens to you spill your beans in the bleachers at a fall ball game (thank you Jana!) to all the ones who send you messages and texts of "I believe in you!", leaning into them all is what this human needs to do right now. I hope they all know I am here for them too.
