I went on a little holiday to Italy and packed so perfectly with everything i needed to really look after myself.... face masks, books, art stuff, dresses. And guess what ... No bag! I don't know if its from writing our book Self Care for the Real World or working on what Equanimity and Compassion with @elenabrower but i was cool as a cucumber. And instead of thinking only about me and my bag and all the things I wanted to do, I thought about all the other passengers that didn't have their bags, then the poor lady representing the airline, the airline, and all the way back to a glitch in the system at Gatwick. No one on any of this trail went to work thinking I'm gunna fuck up their holidays. It just happened. I remained calm and kind and smiling. Worse things have happened this week and I kept my perspective. BTW.... I'm not usually calm in these situations, i get pissed. But today i chose not to. When i arrived the sun was shining. I ate a beautiful bowl of pasta. I borrowed a shirt and the hotel washed my clothes for me, everything i needed was right here. I'm very proud of myself for learning and putting into practice the things I want to be better at. Being calm, seeing things don't revolve around me at all, letting go of the things you can't control and I didn't need one thing i packed. Not one!
Turned a shirt into a dress and heading to dinner ❤️🙏🏾 #lessismore
