The kids have been enjoying themselves visiting Grandparents for the week. I use to fear being alone when I was a stranger to myself. Negative thoughts would run rampant. Even meditation first caused panic because I was alone in my mind. The moment daily meditation became a loved must, I realized I no longer saw myself as a stranger but a loved, strong, sometimes funny😂, deserving best friend.
On my 40th birthday, I had the honor of joining a New Moon Sisterhood Circle. Smudging took place at entrance and we proceeded with meditation, holding space for each other, journaling, declaring the month's intentions, and adding flower petals and favorite oils to a pot of bath salts we jarred to use on the full moon.
It was 11:30pm when I got home and realized I hadn't eaten since breakfast. I made a BLT with side of 10 minute ripe avocado, and placed a candle with just enough time to make a wish. Each bite of the sandwich, I kept smelling the devine bath salt oils infused into my skin and my heart smiled.
Some may see this pic of my birthday dinner/dessert as sad or lonely. I see it as a time capsule full of love, peace, happiness, empowerment, strength, friendships, and faith in myself. Now that's one hell of a sandwich! 😜
