Today I feel well cared for, spoiled really. So many things happened that reminded me how well taken care of I am.
I was celebrated for a win that my wife was instrumental in helping me accomplish. I was told that meal prep would be taken care of while the Mrs. is away—by the Mrs. And those are just a few things. The list goes on and on.
This is not easy for me to receive because I pride myself on being independent. But even after 22 years of being in a relationship I am still learning to be interdependent. But I am also lucky enough to be in a relationship with someone who just heaps so much love in my direction, in so many unspoken ways that I am left awestruck and grateful that I get to experience it all.
Attention like this is also difficult to receive because I am a giver. I love to give … of my time, my resources, my compassion, anything to serve and to help. So it feels foreign sometimes to be on the receiving end of what I’m in the habit of giving.
But I am learning that what you put out into the Universe, the Universe will return to you in kind. So I gracefully accept it. And will continue to give as well as enjoy receiving.
