Fill your heart with light and love

I’m reminding myself. I’m reminding you, if you want it. I’m filling my heart, even more, with light and love. Today was a tough body day. When I don’t sleep well enough, which is more often than I like, it’s a tough body day. And brain day. And emotion day. But I am...
