That is all I need to do, "just weave the nest". Last night I made a beef stew, kale and cornbread. There was oatmeal for breakfast. This afternoon I thread the needle of the sewing machine and made three flannel receiving blankets for Freyja. I made similar blankets for my babies and I remember that I loved them the most. They are a little bigger, and warmer and softer and prettier than the ones we can buy. "Just weave the nest", says my mind.
I keep turning to this phrase over and over, all day long. It is so helpful. It softens, gives purpose and creativity. Just weave the nest.....
And it snowed again another 6 inches last night.
I am going to paste here (like sharing on FB) something that was written on FB by a new friend and it is so true. Along the same vein as mantras and regarding the snow and what it requires of you,
"What I learned/relearned/heard/intuited while shoveling today. If you are going to judge yourself, speak badly about yourself, think and feel badly about how you are in the world you will always find willing participants for your personal crucifixion. It's a new year, new world, new moment. Be and love who you are. #%* (let go) of the rest." thank you, Malley.
Any circumstance can inspire you to think a little deeper, find a little wisdom, and reach a little higher.....we just have to put in a little effort when we can...I admit we can not always step up to the plate we put right before us but, the power of a mantra is that it is supposed to help by repeating over and over, hopefully influencing your mind to be more like that thought....in this case, a weaver, a creator, a builder, a nurturer, a mother...
........and if you are a Bubbles, I am working with my mantra, "just weave the nest"....simple as that.
