Look up a picture of a sloth monster, especially a baby one, I will wait…
Without the help of many sloth monsters in my life, I couldn’t be where I am today. If I hadn’t found the beautiful souls here and everywhere around me, I couldn’t be the woman I am today. I couldn’t be this proud of myself, and I couldn’t have began breaking out of my cocoon.
Today, I spent time with a few of my friends and family in real time. I bonded, deeply, with several of the people closest to me. We ate, drank, and shared. I felt the love all around me, even from the people in the restaurant. They were so good to us. Though I saw people looking at us, I didn’t care. I felt free and alive, full of life.
A few of the experiences I have shared, I won’t go into those. See, one of the people I shared with tonight is one of the most beautiful souls I’ve ever seen. Hers is shiny bright, and she’s my friend, my mother, my sister, my aunt, my cousin, and my best friend. She’s married to my brother, and he’s my father, my brother, my uncle, my cousin, and my friend.
I spent time with her, and I shared secrets. I shared deep, dark burning secrets with her. Ones that were destroying my soul. Ones that were causing me so much grief, ones that were making me sad, angry, glad, joyful, giggly. I laughed, I cried, we held each other. She held me, and made me feel better while I cried. I let out pain, so much pain. And, I feel better.
I have so many homes, so many homes. My heart rests in many places. It brings me to special places in my mind where I can reflect, in peace here in the quiet, outside. I can think, and make connections talking with people in person. I can touch them, and feel their love. In a safe way with their consent. I can be me, and not be afraid. I can be me, and not be angry. I can be me, and not be alone.
Feel the love people, feel the love. Do it for me, do it for you, do it for your family, do it for your friends, do it for love, do it by the car in the woods. Do it for the guy/girl/Muslim/Jew/Christian/bi/straight/trans/Indian/whomever down the street. Honestly, I don’t care who you do it for.
Just do it!
