Giving and receiving are two opposites that need each other I tell my clients, students and friends. And you speak out exactly out what you need to hear even when you think it’s for others. This weekend while I had the honor, grace and privilege to facilitate 28 life coach students in their final 20 hours bringing them to graduation last night, I received. I received all weekend long in and out of class. As I reflect upon recent blessings, here is what I know:
I received LOVE from my son’s hug, my husband’s text and my daughter’s cleaning up the kitchen.
I received PATIENCE from the opportunity to step into another’s shoes, mind and driver seat.
I received GRACE in the hummingbirds’s visit, the moon’s hello, the visitors in my dream.
I received JOY in a student’s laugh, seeing my husband’s face, a vase of tulips.
I received PEACE in a thousand loving words, the light of a single candle, my inhale & exhale, chakra gems, my daughter cleaning the kitchen (bonus points for giving me love & peace), the quiet, the noise, the dark, the light, a hundred kind words, 31 hugs, poetry, Mt. Rainier, naked trees, God’s loving embrace.
I am a giver who receives just as much as I give for it is in receiving that my heart expands, my cup overflows and my spirit dances on air.

As founder of my retreat business, Mama Needs A Refill, LLC, one way I know I fill my cup is by showing up to a blank page to write.

Please know I appreciate you joining me on this journey whether you visit every week since I began in 2009 or this is your first blog stop.
