The drawers and closets are bursting as we are between the cold weather and the occasional warm. In a few weeks we can begin putting some of the winter things away and possibly begin some much needed spring cleaning–but not today.
The following is an excerpt from my book My Life as an Endangered Species:
“We can see ourselves in our time and season as enough. When nurturers let go of unrealistic expectations and comparisons they can focus on where they are and what they have done, are doing, and will do. It is enough.
“Perhaps the perception of perfection is holding the nurturer back. I define perfection as a journey not a destination. As long as we are progressing forward we are enough.
“May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pocket hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you. (Irish blessing)
“… A home can be a sacred place, a safe haven from perceived dangers…”
As nurturers I believe we can thrive by overcoming our crowded negative thinking. Despite a nurturers challenges with depression, illness or fatigue, a cozy perception can be developed.
May your thrival be cozy today and always.
