I spent tonight on an adventure. That is, I spent it finding some genuine magic and being pleasantly surprised by each turn it took, and which ended with me making the below pillow:
“Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable” – Mary Oliver
It’s become a favorite quote of mine from the recently deceased poet, Mary Oliver. It’s actually a quote I stumbled upon on Pinterest one day, but it’s been making me embrace the unpredictable nature of this hectic, yet precious world we live in.
When I woke up this morning, I thought I would simply go to work and come home. Instead, I spent today connecting with truly amazing people, including my coworkers over an hour long lunch break at Whole Foods in the city where we learned a little bit more about each other, my mom who spent one half hour of her morning taking pictures of my diploma so that I could post it as quickly as possible on social media (because you – or I – just have to), and two great friends over an amazing short rib grilled cheese sandwich and Jersey sangria while channelling our inner artists.
It was a truly unpredictable, unimaginable day, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
