The Best Part of Heartbreak

This week, I received an e-mail about heartbreak. More specifically, I received an e-mail asking how to possibly stay positive through heartbreak. And the answer is quite simple: DON’T. Not at first.

Instead, accept how you feel. Instead, express how you feel. Instead, use this heartbreak as an opportunity to remember exactly why you are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! In fact, make a list of the ten ways you are absolutely incredible today, tomorrow, the next day … keep making those lists until you feel again like the lively, spirited YOU! And keep reaching out with your questions! I’m always ready to listen.

Sunday Gratitude

What are you grateful for this beautiful Sunday?

Today, I love busy airports. I love running into people I know in those busy airports, because it happens so rarely. I love getting to know those people more, embracing their stories. I love Ms.A’s stories, how she takes time to notice all the details and sensations in every moment.

Today, I love sitting in Ms. A’s moments, and sharing mine. I love that so many of our moments now intersect, and that our home is now the same. Today, I love going back to that home I call Vandy. I love that my home is filled with family, some I’ve only known a few months. I love how we all grow so close so quickly. I love knowing that Ms. A is 99% of the reason why.

Today, I love leaving my family’s home to go home.

Find a splendid way to get lost in the moment!

Today I Love…

Getting lost in the moment of drilling! What is your splendid way to get lost in the moment? Write it. Share it. Embrace it this next moment!

Today, I love drilling ivory. I love watching the beige tusk spin out from a millimeter of depth. How it rolls and collides in a dance of freedom. I love creating that freedom. And I love taking a deep inhale through my yellow mask, breathing in the burning ivory. I love the scent of burning ivory – like the gift of fresh-baked scone. And I love that the ivory burns less every day.

Today, I love remembering. I love wondering how it felt to first hold the drill. Not too long ago. The day when my hand first met metal. I remember, how I was so clumsy. And I love that I was so clumsy! My lines skidding into a path of improvement. I love that I can see such improvement.

Today, I love finding balance, my fingers resting steady, guiding my drill no deeper than dentin. I love the softness of dentin, and how I can create such precision with my hands. And I love that I now know where to place my fingers, when only two weeks ago, I did not. Today, I love learning, and I love how the challenge of the experience becomes just an afterthought.

Today, I love the serenity in the moments surrounding afterthoughts.
