Pretty uneventful day. Although, International Women's Day! Felt particularly inspired by a poetic quote by Rupi Kuar: "What's the greatest lesson a woman should learn? That since day one, she's already had everything she needs within herself. It's the world that convinced her she did not." I really want to take that to heart. Like, deeply. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am whole. I am pure. I sort of think that the more I reinforce that sort of positive language, the more true it becomes to me on a fundamental level. And she states it in such a delicate and lovely way. It's truly beautiful.
I am coming down with some sort of cold so the day just kind of dragged on. I volunteered at the women's center after work (I do childcare once a week, usually in the infant room) and I was, like, a lump. I just wanted to melt into the couch. I also felt kind of guilty for still going in even though I didn't feel great. In hindsight, it's not very smart to go be around babies when you're feeling a cold coming on.
Then came home and watched a show with my roommate. We've been into that Big Little Lies show on HBO - it's kind of like, intriguing mom drama in the prep-school-but-for-elementary-aged-children realm. We are pretty much hooked, at this point.
