Yesterday I had a friend call me at 7:30 in the morning crying because she thought she might have taken too many pills to get her through a difficult time. I sat with her most of the day to make sure she was ok.
Yesterday I met with someone who I didn’t know. She had benefited from Divorcee Café and was so grateful that this program was out there. She summed it up perfectly: When you go through divorce, it’s like falling into the abyss. With Divorcee Café, You don’t fall as far.
Yesterday, as I was driving down 3rd south, I got swept up in tons of police cars closing down the block. There was a Jumper on the roof threatening to kill himself. I had never seen anything like that outside of the TV.
Yesterday I had someone tell me how proud they were of me for going through so many things over the past few months to test my soul and my path. They were proud that I had faced the fears, moved through them, and could see how trust in myself has manifested so much more than just one bad day.
People are hurting around you that you don’t even know. It’s time to step out of yourself and your shit and give someone a hug or just be there for them because you have no idea the impact you may have on their life.
Today, a friend is coming over, bringing donuts. Usually, I stay away from sweets, sugar and try to eat clean.
Today, I am going to eat that damn donut and be grateful for everything that has happened in my life, good and not so good because it makes me who I am.
Donuts are wonderful things. They are like big warm hugs sprinkled with kisses.
So, treat yourself…..
Eat the damn donut, smile, and be grateful for all that you have.
