A Dooney year runs from June 25th to June 25th, as that is my birthday. Carol has always said that on your birthday you should do things that you want to be doing the rest of your year. So today I have done a little work (coaching and made a bracelet), I’ve donated items to the charity store, I’ve talked to my loved ones, I’ve played with my dogs, I’ve worked in my garden, I’ve indulged myself a bit, I’m going to be dining with friends, I’ve done a bunch of boosting and I’ve done a bit of cleaning and organizing. It feels like it’s been a pretty good day.
No matter what is happening in your life, take some time to do your things on your birthday. We’ve had a tough month with the death of our beloved dog Molly and the imminent death of a beloved family member who has lived a good, long life. Endings are never easy. Stevo keeps reminding me to breathe, to ground, to bring in the Galactic Sun…all the things I know how to do but sometimes forget about in the heat of the moment.
What I do know is that everyone is going through something. I’m not alone in that. We can help each other through the tough times, and I find that sometimes it makes tough things easier if you help someone else too. I really appreciate all of you who boost us and send me nice comments and emails. You guys are great!
