First! A little business!
I did a stencil giveaway last week, and the winner has been chosen by the magic of random.org:
Yay congratulations, iffyarchive, with this spectacular comment:
Damn right. Baby kittens.
I have a bunch of new designs in the works, and I love to give stuff away, so keep those peepers peeped!!
OKAY! Now that business is out of the way, time for more business!
Just do small things with great love
Suksma is all about the small things, the seemingly insignificant, the intangible, minute, small, fine thin, unimportant, and subtle. In its broadest definition, it is this: That thing you’re looking for is right here.
Feel the subtle energy shifts. Let it become part of your entire being. Know that every movement is exactly what is needed. Love those things that seem small and insignificant. Know that they aren’t.
This week I have no meditations or contemplations, really, but I do have real-life homework, should you choose to accept it.
Embrace those things that seem meaningless. For me, it was the way that food with a face makes me laugh. I love the cute squishiness of it all.
and really, isn’t that what it’s all about?
Ways to work with this prompt:
- Journal about small, subtle things you love/ways to express love.
- Think about the phrase, “the thing you’re looking for is right here.” What are you looking for?
- Make lists. List the things you love in nature, the people you love, the actions you take that fill you with joy. Figure out a way to bring more of these into your life.
- What small thing brings you a HUGE HAPPY? For me, it’s food with a face. For you it could be a butterfly, a cup of coffee, a unicorn, a stormtrooper. Whatever it is, incorporate that into your journal.
- Work with any of these quotes:
- Just do small things with great love. – Mother Teresa
- Sometimes the smallest act of love can take up the biggest space in someone’s heart. – Unknown author
- If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way. – Martin Luther King, Jr.
- Great things are done by a series of small things brought together. – Vincent Van Gogh
GO OUT INTO THE WORLD. Perform small acts of love. Here are some ideas!!
- Pay for someone’s coffee/art supply/book.
- Call or text someone just to say, “I love you.” Bonus points for singing it like Stevie.
- Reach out to a neighbor.
- Support or volunteer for an organization. Especially one that doesn’t benefit you personally. Even if all you can do is email and say, “hey I love you,” then do that. Small things. Big difference.
- Smile at a stranger. Compliment a stranger. Hold a door open.
- Be kind.
I think that’s all for me this week. Come on over to the Facebook group for camaraderie. Check out my Patreon where you’ll get the real-time video for this week’s timelapse.
and, speaking of this week’s timelapse, here it is!
Until next week, my lovelies.
