be the outstretched palm…

Tribe!

I just love these words from @iamhertribe.

Recently, I’ve been seeing posts by newly single-mom’s. The start of that journey is so hard. And painful. And feels lonely.

So I reached out.

I would like to invite you to do the same, please?

‘be the outstretched palm that allows someone to be seen. heard. and not so alone today.’

God Bless,

Ray

Feel the Feels…

‘Feel the feels’ is usually associated with excitement and happiness, butterflies and all those good vibrations.

As I write this post, which is two days overdue, the feels I’m feeling are those others.

Exhaustion, frustration, annoyance and loneliness. A little, maybe a lot, sorry for myself. It comes after a week of sick kids, work demands, catching up on homework, dishes, washing, nagging and.. and.. and.

Initially, I hesitated to write and publish this post. Considering we’re still getting to know one another, you know – in the wooing phase.
And then I realised, this is life! If this is true for me then it could be true for so many others.

And so here I am. Saying, these are my feels right now.

It felt like this last night, it feels like this today and will probably tomorrow as well.

One of the valuable lessons from my journey is to feel ALL the feels. Because they’re all valid and necessary.

The trick though, is not to get stuck there. Which is easier said than done sometimes.

My practice that anchors me again, is flexing my faith muscle†
Talking to friends & family. Listening to music – Lianne La Havas will be on repeat! And trying to find some ease and rest. Practicing better self care.

To remember to take it one day at a time.

And to be gentle with myself.

God Bless,

Ray
