I’m sitting here, okay, lying in bed, shaking. What’s weird is that I feel absolutely nothing and gave a half smile on my face. It’s not weird. For I’m not sure if I ever feel anything when I shake.
I’m grateful. I think I know what my body is either processing or letting go of, and I’m grateful for it. I feel absolutely nothing. Just the physical sense of bodily shaking. There’s a lot I actually wanted to write about that. How I hope that this year I unify body and mind, how this year I want to actually experience in my body what is.
Shaking is s good thing. It means I’m actually processing in some way – well, I hope! – what happened this week. That I’m dealing with it in some way. Even if that way is really weird and disconnected in some ways. In some ways it’s really real, too. I will be sad. I will grieve. For now I’m not. For now my body is giving me what it needs even if I don’t connect to it.
I wonder if anyone will understand this – which is why I’m leaving it public although I passworded all my other posts. Because I want others to understand this. I want to know that others relate or know what I mean.
I don’t feel like I put what I mean clearly into words. It’s also that I don’t really know how to explain what shaking is and does and I don’t know if it’s possible to understand if you haven’t experienced it. That I work with shaking is neither good nor bad. Just a fact. That I am processing something, I know. I haven’t been shaking in what feels like years. I think it’s her death. And if it is, even I’d and though I’m not at all connected to my body, as I said, I’m grateful. By trying to explain I’m probably making this make even less sense.
Love, light, and glitter
You are worth it!
(I just realised that if I think about her as I shake I’m connecting to her.)
Day 13: What season of the year are you grateful for?
I love the months of spring, when it begins to get warm, more and more, we hear the birds call. Buds sprout, plants grow, there’s no need, for the sun to lie low. I love spring, a season of hope, a season that tells us, don’t mope. Months of renewal, the days get longer, I hope that with it, our hearts get bigger.
Gratitude challenge day 13: List 3 things that you like about your job.
It’s a way of giving back.
I like my workmates in one of my jobs, and the other it’s a good work on my character to see the good in the good people who I don’t necessarily appreciate.
Hey you! Did you know that you matter? You absolutely do. Please take a reminder… You are valuable. You have influence. You can do anything. You are appreciated. You are loved. You are talented. You make a difference. You are amazing. You matter.

Friday – random acts of kindness. I haven’t done this post in a while, but I love JoAnne’s Tuesday posts so decided it’s a must…
I keep on seeing and hearing about so much kindness done during this time. Caz @ Invisibly Me posted an awesome post about various companies here in the UK that are helping people out. Someone, if it was you let me know! Wrote about how their neighbour knocked on their door to bring them some toilet paper. In almost every community there are groups to help and support others. I’ve seen adverts for so many communities. I know about the jewish ones – whatsapp communities around the world where people ask for what they need or can’t get it because they are in isolation, and others help, because they can.
A mother took her son to give away toilet paper, because she had it, and others don’t.
A youtube duo started a toilet paper pop up shop for laughs a while ago.
They were left with a stockpile, so when the toilet paper frenzy began they gave it away.
We are never alone. There are always good people around.
Let’s spread kindness instead of fear. What can you do today to brighten someone’s day?
