One of my favorite things to do is hang laundry on the clothesline. I think back to when I was a young girl and I would run through sheets hanging on the line, that was a magic time in my life. I am able to cultivate that magic now when I am doing the laundry, and I feel so at peace, so thankful for everything in my life. I don't notice the heat or the bugs or distracting thoughts. I am able to stay fully present. Its as if a window is open yet there is a screen and I feel the breeze but all the bugs can't get through. Hanging clothes is my zen work, and doing zen work is great tending.
Since Mon is taking a break from Keeping it Real and my Friday's are open I thought this would be a great opportunity for some tending.
These are some things I am doing to fill myself...
I am reading this book and so far I love it!
Of course I am hanging laundry

It is more than just doing these things, it is the intention behind the doing. Each of these things are done with much intention, as if it is a sacred ritual. Putting love and energy into my precious babies' mama, what could be more sacred than that?!
I would love to hear the things you are doing for yourself, to fill you up and tend your light. You deserve it.
