I was profoundly missing my dog Serenity today, so I sent a little prayer for the opportunity to hug a dog and soak up that loving, furry energy. My mom and I went up to McConnell's Mills to be in nature for a bit and we passed a woman with not one, but two wonderfully sweet dogs, and she let me kneel down and hug them both at once. It was so healing to my heart that I went off a cried by the river for a bit and felt so much lighter.
Thank you, kind dog owner, and thank you Pixie and Sven for your soothing heart-magic. And thank you, all you dog owners, for every time you let a stranger hold your dog for a minute. You might not know how big the impact can be for that person, but the impact is certainly there.
I know you're anxious. I know you're tired. I know you want the week to be over, already.
To get me through this anxious, exciting, tiring, unbelievable time in our nation, I'm going to be spending extra time hugging my horses, kissing my cat, writing, sleeping, and dosing up on my favorite medicinal mushroom blend: Cordychi. It balances internal Fire and Water, is a broad-spectrum immune-booster, and calming to the heart while energizing the body, this is my favorite go-to supplement for almost any situation. I never recommend any products I don't love, and I recommend this one to nearly everyone.
You can order it here, and any other supplements you want (the Meditation Formula by Jadience is also fantastic for anxiety!), and by going through this link, you'll always get 10% off everything, always.
This year feels extra magical to me for some reason - maybe just that with all the curveballs 2020 has thrown at us, it seems like anything is possible.
Beyond candy and costumes, today (and tomorrow) is about remembering our family and friends who have passed through the veil before us. Today I received a gift from a stranger that feels like an especially sweet remembrance of my mentor, who died almost a year ago.
Grief doesn't have to stay bitter. It doesn't have to wrench you apart every time it rises in your heart. Sometimes, the sadness can come with gratitude, and sometimes the crying can be an exhilarating experience of being alive. Today, I am embracing it all.
