|Being in India for 12 days for a dear friend’s friend’s wedding, I witnessed amazing moments of deep love between intimates and decade-long friends, unconditional generosity and kindness, and beauty-filled traditions I’d never imagined. Part of me felt like an intruder; the other part, an honored guest.
The funny thing is, being a guest on this Trip of a Lifetime, I was the one gifted. I was offered the chance to observe myself: how I interact, what pushes my buttons, who & what I long for, what pushes me outside my comfort zone.
I feel like I’m fairly aware, sensitive, and someone who takes risks. But I really got to know a new deep appreciation for my familiars, find more clarity for my ridiculous-es and boundaries, a renewed value in shutting up and paying attention, and (ironically, kind-of painfully) how little I laugh lately. (Cue link below)
Me appreciating small things:
What a Trip! Gratefulness abounding…
this little light of mine. i’m gonna let it shine.
