Just casually lounging around I’m not a model I swear
Yay, Saturday and all that jazz. I for one have a very fun weekend ahead of me: If you’ve been reading here for a while you know I have three cousins that I absolutely worship. Since I live in Rotterdam (and they don’t) we have started a sleep-over cycle.
The oldest is 13 and he’s been here for a sleep-over during the summer, my princess was here a couple of months back and now the youngest is coming over for a slumber party.
He’s a very sweet, active kid, loves games and has more energy than a Duracell bunny convention. Therefore I’m on full entertainment mode for the upcoming 24 hours and I expect to be FLOORED by the end of the weekend. I’m so excited.
But first things first, the assignment for today.
Chances are that during the year that is about to end you’ve met a lot of people that touched you in some way (figuratively, but if literally good for you). Whether strangers or close friends, people that have had impact on your life in some way.
People that changed something for you, whether in your life or just within you as a person. A teacher who didn’t give up on you when you struggled with a subject, a stranger who took care of you when you were lost, a friend who was there when you didn’t expect him to be.
I’ve met a few people like that this year. There was a woman who saved me from being horribly lost and late for an appointment. A student who changed who I am without knowing it. A yoga teacher who makes me feel like the yoga girl I want to be. An ambitious friend who inspires me. Coffee with a spiritual semi-stranger I connected with.
I want you to think of these people and write down a ‘thank you’ with motivation. I want you to really think about your gratitude and articulate why these people made such a mark on you and your life. Connect with what they did and what that meant for you.
You don’t have to share it with them this time: Stuff like this can be very personal and out of your comfort zone to share with the relative strangers. So no sharing if you don’t want to.
I mean, you can, but I am not going to fucking track down all these people just to tell them they profoundly changed me or made my life better. I think that shit is embarrassing enough to admit to close family and friends, plus ain’t nobody got time for that.
Well, at least I ain’t got the time for that.
I have to go pick up the munchkin and figure out what movie(s) we’re going to see today.
OK have a great weekend BYE!
