Kindness is MAGIC! Seriously though. In an earlier post I wrote about ways Scarlett and I would go out “Love Bombing” today. I honestly do believe with everything in me that when you choose Joy, you feel joy and then the next right thing is usually to spread joy. Because, why not?! .
I have been feeling worse & worse with my f💙cked face & head. Ohmyhell. Words fail. Saturdays are Target days because Hubby is home. Scarlett and I look forward to Saturday Target runs. It’s never for exciting things. However, it’s Target. Today I told Joshua to go away & leave us be. I just wanted to feel like it was the old days. The days I drove us there. Just the girls. Mainly, the days I drove when I wanted to. And my jumpsuit? I’ve been waiting to wear that forever! Packed it for CA & never wore it. I’ve been waiting for a special occasion. F😉ck. Right now going to Target IS a special for me. Today was special because we were dropping Love Bombs at Target just because. And it turned all of my feeling so shitty into feeling shiny for a little while. Was I still in pain? Yes. Did I feel so much JOY at the same time? Ohmyhell YES!! .
Scarlett & I left our rocks in random spots. And I left notes on the mirror in the bathroom. And we hope it felt good to the person who found them. Being kind doesn’t always have to be “random” you know. It can just be. It is magic. Let your love bring someone else the feeling of luck. Choose Joy. Feel joy. Spread joy. I love you. I love me. I love us. .
Pain and joy. A relentless tug-o-war. #Joywarrior #andsoichoosejoy #thisonelife #truthteller #kindnessismagic #justbecause #warriorspirit #choosejoy #feeljoy #spreadjoy #humansofjoy #recovering #brainsurgery #grief #wekeepgoing #andyet #iloveus #lovebombs #shittyintoshiny #daybyday #paintedrocks

    This is magic! Kindness is magic. You and Scarlett are magic. And damn that jumpsuit is magic. Loved it from the picture before I read your post!! I chose joy today too. Played with flowers out front even though I suck with flowers. I’m choosing to believe these planted with a lot of love will survive! ❤️

    I am a big fan of wearing our best stuff on an ordinary day (making it a little extra-ordinary). You look so beautiful in it. I see joy on your face (despite the pain in it). No matter how much pain we're in, there is always room for (a version of) joy as well. If that's not the definition of Grace I don't know what is. Sending you so much love. Leave rocks, you rock so much there will always be plenty more. ❤️❤️❤️

    @karynlind Amen Sister. I believe your flowers will flourish, Karyn. They were planted in JOY! They will be nourished in JOY, too. I think 🤔 Magic!!! Love you!

    @embracing_my_wings Grace upon grace. It was good for us. There was room for joy. Fun dressing it all up. Thinking of something (a little something) to do today. Stretching my wings a bit. Day by day. Big big LOVE to you!💙💙💙
