Mannnnnnnnnnn I forgot to write yesterday! It’s okay though – better one day than a whole week of not writing, right?
I was super tired yesterday honestly, I had a really long day. I had work, and then I went to go hang out with Radha, and by the time I got home all I could think to do is sleep. On the bright side, I did meditate before I went to bed and I did do my whole facial skincare routine! So that’s two out of three things.
Yesterday was good! Work went well – I got to see Sera before she leaves on her trip to Hawaii, where she’s meeting Dylan! That’ll be a good way for them to end his massive trip through Asia.
Hanging out with Radha was nice too – she caught me up on everything that’s going on in her life and she seems to be doing really well for herself, so I’m happy for her! I’m glad things are going well with her new guy and that her career is thriving and falling into place – she’s even gotten a head start on her personal business that she’s launching!!!
I didn’t really get a chance myself to catch her up properly with my own stuff because every time I would try to she would interrupt and we’d get carried away talking about something else, and you know on some far level I could feel it bothering me. But today, not so much. You know what I realized?
Minus this blog, I’m actually a pretty private person. I don’t make it easy to talk about myself, I don’t readily volunteer information unless I feel comfortable enough to, and I actually have a tendency to deflect inquiry from myself to something else. Unless I’m 110% sure that sharing my energy is worth the opening up and that there will be reciprocity, I’m okay with just listening. Sometimes that’s all someone really needs, and I have enough reciprocity in my life through myself, through others. So, I’m picky with whom I divulge my energy and my life with and I’m good with that.
Today is Saturday, and I got to sleep in and now I’m watching a documentary series on the mysteries of the oceans and MAN. The amount of stuff that we as a humanity DO NOT KNOW. There’s an infinite amount of world out there left to be discovered, truly.
Watching this series reminds me how much it made my heart fly to go snorkelling. Being underwater is somehow so still, so silent, and yet so full of wondrous movement and magic. You’re truly a guest in a world that does not belong to you, and you do not belong to it. It humbles you. It makes you feel small, in all the best ways. To see creatures that inspire both awe and fear, to see beauty unlike any other. It’s like art in movement, the paintbrush of nature that never stops its strokes.
The plethora of colours, of fish, of coral reefs that serve as both a home to those who inhabit them as well as a multicoloured forest that adorns the sea floor in sharp contrast to the brilliantly lit blue waters they’re surrounded by.
It’s one of my favourite things to do on this earth. To explore, to feel weightless, to enjoy the silence of it all in order to truly take in what you’re seeing as you glide along.
This world truly is so vast and wondrous and magical with so much to offer. I can’t imagine living my life and not experiencing this magic.
Fun fact: there is a fish species called Kobudai – and when the female gets to a particular size and age, the enzymes in her body begin to break down and male hormones start to be produced. She then transitions from female… to male!!! And then he challenges the male that originally dominated over the colony and starts fertilizing the other females. There’s transgender fish out there! Isn’t that amazing!?!? SCIENCE!!!!
Well, that’s about it for today. I think I may be hanging out with Adrian tonight, depending on how the dinner with his dad, his brother and his brother’s fiancee goes. Speaking of – Adrian booked his days off for our trip! And better yet – when he mentioned to his boss that we’d be going to New Orleans, his boss had some amazing news. His boss knows someone who works for the freaking New Orleans super-dome – the one place Adrian asked if we can do a tour of while we’re there!!! So, we may be getting a hook-up for that too. WHAT ARE THE ODDS!?!?
We’re both so awed and so humbled that this is happening, that things are manifesting in this way. We both agreed that with our combined optimism and energy, there’s nothing we can’t do and that the sky’s the limit. I’m so excited!!!
Anyways, I’ve got to go help my mom with one of her catering orders now! I work tomorrow (which is beginning to feel like a foreign feeling with the amount of time I’ve had off) and then I’m off Monday through Friday!!! I can’t wait to rest and go to class and hopefully start working out, LOL.
