Today is sunny, a lightly cool breeze, and gorgeous!
All of the trees are covered in brand new green leaves that seem to be shouting, “I’m so happy to be alive!”
Oh god I love days like this.
Yesterday was the best date day. Nothing extra special happened but the connection between Tiff and I was on fire.
We went to the gym and when we got there before working out, declared, “Fuck it it’s Friday,” and drove to Beaumont Bakery to have the world’s best avocado toast, pastries, coffee and of course Tiff started the day off right with a glass or 2 of Rosé.
The pastries are so damn good. Baked fresh every single day and that is the reason why you’ll lose your mind when you eat them. SO GOOD!
Good food, gorgeous wife, happy feelings and day drinking… ahhhhh, just so nice.
I love seeing my wife happy and relaxed, and it was long overdue.
The rest of the day was spent visiting mama Cris for an early Mother’s Day visit, buying Tiff a whole new wardrobe because her clothes have all gotten too big (such an awesome problem to have), then back home again for some pre-dinner drinks, a nice pipe smoke and then Lyfting to a late dinner.
It was wonderful and MUCH needed.
It’s been a helluva couple of weeks with energy management at our house, especially for Tiff.
Being an empath is a big job. And Tiff is a full blown empath.
Me…I’m highly sensitive but not an empath.
If I’ve lost you, let me clarify.
Being an empath is someone that FEELS other people’s feelings as their own.
For example: You walk into a Starbucks to get a cup of coffee. You stand in line next to a guy that seems like a pretty ok guy but suddenly you are overcome with intense sadness and feel like crying. You know with absolute certainty that you were happy as a clam when you walked in but now you feel like crying and you’re wondering if you’re nuts??!
You’re not alone in this, it’s estimated that 20% of the world is made up of highly sensitive people.
Empaths are at the far end of the sensitivity spectrum not only being more sensitive to everything but their feelings aren’t just their own.
This can get a little complicated trying to explain it, but if you listen to this episode we chunk it right down and make it super simple.
You need to know if you’re a highly sensitive person because if you are, you’re different and have different needs.
In this episode we give you the assessment to help you figure out if you’re an HSP (highly sensitive person), and we talk about the differences between being highly sensitive vs. being an empath.
It’s important for you to know this about yourself.
Well, I’ve got to wrap this up now because there are some other things that must get done before I head home with beer and pizzas in hand for our son’s shared birthday party tonight.
All for now.
And btw have a beautiful Mother’s Day, whether you’re a mother of children or fur babies, or the world’s best aunty, it’s your day, celebrate. Why not eat dessert first? Life really is meant to be devoured.
Jack (and Tiff 💋)
