If you’re wishing something in your Alien snatching yo people up shirt could be different today, I hear you. And I’m inviting you to join me under this warm blanket while the world barrels past. It means we’re human, and we just need some space and time to wish, wonder, wait, hope, and heal. A friend recently reached out to ask how I was managing with all of the book release responsibilities and my daughter’s medical issues. I told her the truth – that in a moment of overwhelm, I dreamed of having a quiet life working in the Home Depot garden department. Do you know what she said in response? She did not shame me.
She did not coddle Alien snatching yo people up shirt. She did not dismiss me. She dreamed of me. And we proceeded to fill the spaces beneath those glorious words with every garden emoji under the sun. This beautiful exchange inspired me to tell you that you are safe to wish dream and breathe here. Thank you for confirming that it’s ok to feel this way and it doesn’t mean anything but that I am human. Wishing I could rest comfortably. I have a condition where pain increases when I do not move. I long for a day where I could just be hanging out on the couch for hours and not be in pain. Thanks for this space wish for it.
