Love on a Schedule

1. A specific compassionate loving thing I birthed into the world today: At work everyone’s been swamped, so I offered to help in any way I can.

2. A specific loving thing someone gave to me today: When I failed to go swimming this morning in favor of cuddling, my partner held me for two hours – awesome!

3. A not-so-loving thing someone gave to me today: A friend didn’t have five minutes to spare me because she was cramming for work and vacation, which would’ve been fine in itself had she not been busy the last three months.

4. A compassionately loving thing I did in response to the not-so-loving thing today: I let it go, crediting the whole day of support she gave me on short notice last year when I was in a bad place.
