Thank goodness for our amazing friends Sean & Brittany who came to our place today, took over our kitchen and cooked us up delicious Pad Thai, with a decadent birthday caramel sauce cake & ice cream! It is so great when you feel numb and can't think that people just come and do the thinking for you! Sean offered us invaluable advice on selling our Condo (will list when we get back from Italy), and Brittany gave me an inspirational journal to record Awesome Things. It is based on a series of books & a blog that we actually used as a directive in our art therapy groups. Basically, no matter how scary, dark or horrible things seem, you can always find awesome things in this world.
Here are some examples: Celebrating your pet's birthday even though they have no idea what's going on; Eating anything from your own garden; When it feels like the lyrics to the song you're listening to were written just for you; Jumping into a huge pile of leaves!
Ooh a Beatles song just came on as I sit here typing this listening to iTunes, Awesome!!!
