I have returned from a trip to Pennsylvania; my old place of residence. I stayed with my sister and celebrated the upcoming wedding of her first born. My goal was to experience this wondrous time of her son falling in love with the woman of his dreams and to celebrate the upcoming nuptials through shower, bachelorette party and details, details, details.
When two families (in this case anyway) merge together to walk forward in and with their children’s love, many emotions, lines, boundaries and truths are experienced. Stating and staying in our own truth with an open heart is probably the most loving and giving thing to do. These two families did beautifully.
It was a lot of fun, a lot of joy and I met a lot of new people and connected to many friends and family members that I hadn’t seen for as long as 2-8 years.
My days were full of love as I walked in and with an open heart.
My sister and I did fun things planning and building the wedding day from her own ‘to do list’ and the two getting married.
I am so grateful for this time. I wouldn’t have wanted to miss it and I am glad I didn’t have to. !!!
My health held up pretty darn good if I must say so myself. 5 days in is where my body and mind said enough, you need some serious downtime. My spirit kept me soaring through til the end.
I realized (again) that when I am with people and doing things, it is much easier to forget/ignore the self. I believe this ability is worthy. I also believe the ability to give to one’s self during these times is worthy as well. I believe to accomplish a balance that allows for togetherness and alone time is what works best for me.
May you realize when you want together time and when you want alone time… May you give yourself permission to achieve what you want as often as possible. I believe, this is where health, love and spirit soar the best.
I wish for your spirit to always soar as best as possible.
Only we, ourselves, manage this. This, perhaps, is good news and bad news. May we choose and create it being the good news!
