Instead, it was a day filled with hearty conversation, home-cooked ‘ruffage’, and tarot card readings.
Tomorrow, I head a little South. See you then!
Today, I am grateful for:
1. Jennifer’s softness. While I have been struggling through some very challenging ideas (presently held, and counter-intuitive to my natural resting place), she has gently pushed, pulled, and prodded me into facing what I know is true. I am grateful for her because she is demanding I go home to myself, where I am a better human.
2. My gut instinct, who has never guided me but to the heart of a matter. For nearly half of 2018, I argued with her. Sometimes very loudly. If only I had listened, I would have had a distinctly painless year past. I am now, and will forever hold my peace (in gratitude) when she raises her voice.
3. Sisters who give me advice that does not hinge itself on the antiquated notion that men need to feel as though they are pursuing women. Because women giving advice contrary to this, are women asking Do you really want to be with a man who is uncomfortable around a woman who respects what she wants, and then makes an effort in that very direction? Do you really want to be with a man who is only comfortable around passive women?
