Seeking equality, fairness, the greater good…that does something remarkable for me. It breaks my selfish bubble. It makes me a whole human being. It gives me freedom.
But wait, there’s more. So much more. Seeking balance and harmony for all…brings me out of my despair. It brings light to my darkness. It brings healing to my pain. It lifts me up and out of feeling down and blue, up to the level of okay I was looking for much of my life. And being okay inside and out is the remarkable place I was talking about earlier.
When I make life not all about my pleasure or my suffering, oh wow is it good. It’s elevation.
Like inwardly summiting a spiritual Mt Everest and bringing everyone else up top to share the view.
You probably already knew all of that but it took me almost a lifetime to figure out.
Guys, I ordered one too many pizzas last night for my daughter’s Friendsmas party. I was thinking of selling it on Facebook Marketplace but had second thoughts after I remembered how nobody wanted the pair of jeweled bone earrings I put up for sale a couple of days before Christmas.
Anyways, this FREE delicious Italian pizza is perfectly fine. Nobody licked it or anything. And yes, it’s the one in the actual photo! Just look at all that cold cheesy goodness.
It’s missing a piece because earlier this morning I left one on the neighbor’s front step since she left some Christmas fudge on ours last night. I made her a crayon holiday card but I got red sauce on it so it ended up in the trash. Right where it belonged. With all my other hopes and dreams.
So now the double dough pizza is nuzzled in its box in my fridge if you’d like to stop by and get it. It’d be great for any of you hungover types who need something chewy and filling on this not so sunny Saturday afternoon.
It’s duct taped to the top of my mailbox or something for easy pickup, too! 🎄💝 🍕
