this tornado loves you

and i declare: today is a saturday to take care.
what do you find yourself doing today?
are you taking care of the hidden seed, your dreams, your quiet whispers?
this has always been a rough task for me:
taking care of me.
for self-

it's easy, seemingly, no children, one job, financial stability.
but i am guilty of not being able to crack open and have a really fun time.
so today, today is my day for such fun, such wonder!

i started the morning off with coffee, playing with the pups, coloring with crayons, listening to the new neko case, and recalling my favorite quote, which i will share with you, my dear companions in this days of self-love.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
marianne williamson

i have found thisto be true, not only with myself, but with you too.
let's make this day, or a day of your choosing, our day to shine.
"this tornado loves you, loves you, love you." {neko case}

Mondays always bread a long "to do" list of action items for the work week ahead. This blog has given me inspiration to address "the list" with the best outcome in mind. Prove to myself how awesome I am at my job!

Happy Monday -crow

Dearest Stephanie,

If there is only one thing I am ecstatic about, it the evolution from parent to child.

I also have felt and dealt with those feelings!!!

As a guide, mentor, parent, I know that you will rise above fear, doubt and feel powerful as a woman and a person.

I love you, you inspire me to be fearless!!!!
