A few days ago, a friend sent a text that read “There is just so much to feel right now, and when you’re really paying attention it can be overwhelming.”
Today I was on my way to get my hair cut. (new bangs, woohoo, thanks Robyn.) I had made myself a big, beautiful cup of earl gray tea with some foamed oat milk and a spoonful of honey. I so looked forward to the half hour car ride with my warm cup of tea and a podcast. But as I headed out the door, I decided to move that load of laundry from the washer to the dryer. And when I set down the mug, it tipped and the tea spilled everywhere. I then completely lost my shit.
I had a moment where I wondered why things seem so hard for me.
And then I remembered my friend’s words.
It’s because I’m paying attention.
