Do You Know What It's Like To Believe?
**Here is that bathing suit I ordered in person. I really love it for its shiny, textured look, and my fiance thought it was cute, too. Well worth the 20 bucks for anyone who is thinking of ordering it!!!
The last few days have been full (to an RSD girl) and exciting, starting with the celebration of life, growth, and being present my girlfriend and I had Saturday in a tattoo shop, broken up by a coffee run, and in a park beneath the sun, sky, and thriving greenery. After she got her awesome bod art and I resisted more, we headed off to the party store, not to party, but to pick up a red and a teal balloon to ceremoniously let go into the perfectly blue sky, but not before scribbling meaningful words and phrases all over them to symbolize letting go and moving forward. We set them free at seperate times, but they caught up to one another and intertwined as if dancing some light hearted dance over the tree tops and into the infinite sky. I, of course, felt a twinge of guilt for letting something that isn't natural go off into hot mamma earth, but it was for a great reason, so I put that guilt aside just this one time.
Sunday, I drove to Pat's house in the morning, and in the afternoon, we took a spontaneous beach trip to frolock in the sand. While it was a bit chilly when the sun went in, the day was near perfect with the ocean and love nearby :-) For the first time ever, I was elated to have a handicapped parking sticker because we got an incredible spot a few steps away from the sand and the bathroom, great for a girl sipping on green juices all day.
Monday, with my pup and Pat in toe, we went down to the hospital to get my blood drawn for Project Enbrel, and while chit chatting with the woman drawing my blood, I got to thinking about random acts of kindness, or RAK, as I like to call them. Basically, RAK are not done enough, and it is a shame because they can be transformative. Imagine just 100 people in your town doing RAK each day all day long, and by doing that, they inspire 100+ people to perform RAK, too. The sad part is these acts aren't that difficult to do and take less energy than it would take to frown all day long, but yet most people ignore the selfless opportunities to make someone else smile... Hmmmmmm...
Today is a rest day for me filled with lots of green juices. I am going wild and throwing a little bit of everything in there today. My digestive system needs a huge break. Happy sipping!
P.S. Pain level today = tolerable with my many meds thanks to a lot of sitting around lately minus field. I am so happy with the decision to stop my field placement right now.
