    Listen to my body, what to eat, what I can do comfortably and how I feel, respect what it is telling me. Be patient, kind and loving to all, include myself.

    Rest and strengthen and I will heal.

    That there was unexpected help when there was an almost desperate need to solve a stupid problem on my computer two days ago. It took me almost a full night to try to solve it, when after a short nap, I received technical advice and some kind support to finish what needed to be done. So grateful for their being available to help so that finally the problem could be solved.

    I express my highest self love when I allow myself to be fully open and vulnerable.

    Mostly I’m sensible about what I eat but sometimes, for some unaccountable reason, my body will ingest rubbish.

    I have learned that even when I try to open up to my spouse I continuously get shut down. He has to control the conversation and can’t let me speak my mind at all. If I do participate it is minimal and dismissed. I value his opinion and heed to his advice, I just wish I could express myself more. He wants me to express gratitude for the things he does for me, but I find this very difficult to do. I need so much more emotionally from him it is hard to show gratitude for the other things he provides or does for me.

      Thinking of you this morning, ADP. It’s Sunday now and I read the question for Sunday: “How can I honor my heart’s whisper before it becomes a shout?” It seems your heart is whispering something you need. You’re in my prayers as you discern how to care for yourself and your needs as well as be aware of your husband’s needs. Be kind to yourself.

    No so much a learning, but a reminder. Don’t assume anything.

    Learned again the power of music to heal, to uplift, to open hearts, to bring hope at a beautiful benefit concert for Ukraine.

    Learning to love myself is a work in progress. Some days are easier than others. The invitation is always there. The tough bit is putting it into practice, while doing my best to love the people and world around me.

    Grateful for the this community, and a brand new day to show up and keep practicing! 🙂

    The same principle I relearn and appreciate EVERY DAY

    which is

    “It is not sufficient to know things, because such a knowing is merely of words, meaning nothing. Spiritual growth results from the absorption and digestion, and putting into practice of the simple spiritual laws.”

    From the teachings of Both, ‘Researchers of Truth’ [ DASKALOS ] and ‘The White Eagle Lodge’

    I have learned that I can’t do everything that I think I should do. I have boundaries and I need to respect them.

    Yesterday I got to practice being thoughtful about what comes out of my mouth when I’m with people. It was good to be present and have some control. It felt like a little victory.

    Things learned–I feel as if every one of my days has lessons if I pay attention and this is a reminder to do that. Partial list for Friday:

    Planning to take a day off when our state budget is being finalized doesn’t actually work out (because my job includes analyzing its effects on the program I run), but that’s okay. A partial day off with a mix of work and non-work can feel very balanced.

    Making a point of scheduling coffee and a walk with a friend is always a good idea.

    My younger daughter the peacemaker proposing mediation in a confrontational/adversarial legal scenario (problems with her dad’s estate and an extended family member, has already gone to court) seemed like a non-starter but maybe isn’t, if the other party will consider it. It’s worth asking.

    Not a new lesson, just reinforcement: Popcorn for dinner is delicious and a completely valid choice.

    That there are books on my shelf that have the information I presently need.

    That I feel increasingly like I belong in my school community. I can be at ease and speak my mind, contribute and be heard and respected by my colleagues. Maybe for the first time in my teaching career. It gives me a sense of confidence. A nice experience as I draw closer to the end of my teaching career.

    And maybe COVID brought us all closer together somehow. We weathered it together!
