"Be kinder to yourself. And then let your kindness flood the world." ~Pema Chödron

I had mussels for the first time!  That was a big food highlight of last week’s Hand-Picked Supper Club. It was a blast. Saya brought together a group of 20 people - some who knew each other, some who knew no one (like me) and it was an amazing night.  We shared about who we were and what we did and had some really meaningful conversations and connected in a way that we probably wouldn’t have otherwise.  Along with mussels, we had salad, Boston Blue Fish, and grilled pineapple.  😋 😋
During dessert for the night, we each shared a bit of goodness with the group.  I decided to read the lyrics to the song Humble & Kind as it had been on my mind lately.  My favorite part:
Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you
When you get where you’re goin’
Don’t forget turn back around
Help the next one in line
Always stay humble and kind
Also this week, I wrote a blog post about writing blog posts (so meta right? 🤓) along with the larger issue of being a writer and the self-doubt and anxiety that can come with it. Check it out in the picks below. 
I’ve been fighting a cold and ear infection this week so the go-go-go and lack of self-care have caught up with me again.  I need to make it a point to set aside at least 15 minutes of every day for myself for a little bit of self-care.  Even if it’s right before bed. Every little bit will help. 
In other news, I FINISHED LOST.  And yes as always #solatetotheparty but that series finale left me feeling some kind of way.  No spoilers here but hit reply if you want to discuss, because I seriously need to discuss with someone. 😁
I’m off to chillax and enjoy this holiday weekend.  Hope you have a great one! 🇺🇸
