The other day I caught myself giving a “thumbs up”. I had to stop for a minute because a thumbs up is not my usual way of communicating. I thought on this a bit and realized that I was actually taking an emotional “short cut”; not putting energy into the exchange, not using my words. It made me ):
Real emotions are complex, you can feel them. They cause the hair to stand up on your arm, the eyes to well with tears and the heart to skip a beat. In a world where emotions are taught to be buried and controlled, I say go ahead and feel, express, and contribute. Don’t be the emoji. Don't make "the face".

I don't know about ya'll, but I am forever muttering, "Lord give me patience" while I go about frettin' and wonderin' what's takin' so dang long. Then it hit me...more times than not, "the wait" is the lesson. Okay, breath! Enjoy this glorious Monday!

Didn't see that comin' ...

I used to tell folks all the time, "I hate surprises!" I have always preferred the plan...the one with the details and the exit strategy. But I have to tell you, if it wasn't for a couple of unexpected events in my life, I'd know way less about myself than I do today. What you don't see comin' might just be a blessin'.

Go-Be-Do...there is still time

Ahhhh, August 1. You can just start to see the difference in the daylight, the leaves while not turning are starting to fade. Our internal clocks are readying for what is to come. I hope your season was bountiful, that your summer desires transformed from wishes and dreams to the flower that is reality. Go-Be-Do there is still time.
