My daughter left Saturday for Boston, and will not be home until Wednesday. Her father took her to see Harry Styles in concert. If you don’t know who Harry Styles is, he was the member of One Direction with the massive head of hair. If you don’t know who One D is, I don’t know what to say.
Here are some things I learned while she’s been gone.
*Kick up the self-care a notch. Take the Yoga class already!
*Buy the t-shirt you fell in love with the minute you saw it.
*Go to the coffee shop that re-opened, and encourage the owner.
*Start a Google search, and follow the trail. It leads to a book you wish to read during this quiet time. Call the local bookstore to see if they have it. They have ONE. Drive.
*On the way to the bookstore, stop at places you haven’t stopped in forever. Encourage the owners of the business, and the people working there. Tell them, “I appreciate you.”
*Smile at people. Be kind, and leave them with a smile.
*Hug someone when they least expect it.
*If you invite chaos into your life, take it back, and leave it.
*Use your voice if your heart is not happy. It may begin an avalanche, and your world may fall apart for a bit, but it will fall back together even better than before. Trust me.
*Clear off the giant coffee table, and use it to work a puzzle.
*Just be what you want to see. If it’s love, then be the love.
