I put a bit of myself out there last night.
I sent out invitations to a 31 Bits party.
It's not a really a big deal. It's not.
It's just do you wanna come over for muffins and orange juice and friendship? and I wanna show you something that excites me.
Except people can buy things.
And I hate doing this kind of thing.
I really do.
So I'm reminding myself it's just muffins and juice and handmade jewelry.
And it's ok.
I can do this.
It'll be fun.
and worth it.
because that handmade jewelry is made my women in Uganda
who want to support their families
who want to see them flourish
and who maybe could use a little bit of support doing that.
I. can. do. this.
Because I believe in family and community.
Which brings me to something else.
There some people I didn't invite
because I've been favoring naps over parties lately.
Because I haven't put the time in.
I feel like I need to give a little
before I take.
Does that make sense?
(Edited to add: This is not a reaction or anyone. I'm not even aware that anyone has complained. It's just a couple of things on my mind, now on the internet for anyone to read.)
