Apparently I have to adult today. I don’t want to. Instead, I want to crawl back under the covers and not come out again for a few days. I’m in denial that life is waiting for me outside my bedroom door.
The kids have to go to school. The laundry (eventually) has to get done. There are actual blog posts that need to be published. A new project (WHEE!) is starting and all the prep work must be done. Dinners need to be planned. The grocery store is taunting me.
But for now I’m going to ignore all that. Instead, I’m going to reflect on my week at Mom 2 in Laguna Niguel. I’m going to read through my notes to find the nuggets of wisdom that made my eyes light up. I’m going to go through all my photos and remember how happy it made me to spend time with my tribe, to put my feet in the Pacific, to dance my feet off (even if the DJ blatantly ignored my requests for Luda), to brainstorm, to laugh (and laugh and laugh) and yes, even to cry.
It was a fabulous few days.

I was reminded that as different as we may be as individuals, we are all human. We all need to be loved and cared for. We are all afraid of failure and rejection. And beautiful things happen when we face that fear and jump in with both feet to do whatever it is we feel called to do.
May is a crazy, crazy month for me, as I would imagine it is for most people. It’s the end of the school year and there is so much to be done. Then comes summer, which I hope means a time for me to really move forward, to take big leaps and just work.
