I sat in a cafe in Paris.
I don’t talk about my marriage much.
I met Savannah Rose Crespo at a house party in celebration of a man I was dating at the time. I’m not even sure we spoke to each other much. I made light small talk with people there, but, I was nervous and feeling a bit out of my element. I took a step into the kitchen when I heard a gentle but strong voice in the other room. She spoke of all of the things that my heart screams from my chest on a daily basis and I gravitated to her. I listened and probably chimed in some (as I’m known to do) and left feeling like my heart and her heart would probably hold hands if they could.
As she explores some new stages in her life Savannah has taken to putting her beautiful heart into words and I’m beyond thrilled to have her sharing with you guys today. Please, please, please give her all your love in the form of supportive comments. ‘Cause her kind heart has earned it.
I’ve been aware lately of the virus that is the disconnect we have from our bodies. I’ve spoken before about the contagious nature of our insecurities, how we can give and take new fears from each other like a virus. But, the aspect of a virus that I’m talking about here is more about how wide spread this epidemic is. How it’s more common to hear the people in my life berate themselves rather than building themselves up. How we struggle to care for ourselves because we don’t know how to ask what we need in the proper way.
