Triple Snuggle Sunday

What a Sunday! I knew today was going to be a good day because it started with the rare “triple snuggle.” 

Triple snuggle: when your queen size bed is full because not only are you and your significant other sleeping in on a lazy sunday but so are your 3 pets.

How does this look? It starts with a puppy between the two of you sleeping belly up, snoring like a freight train. Then add a 23 pound cat sleeping between your knee’s, sprawled out as far as he can go on his side. Finally end with a 16 pound cat snuggled in the crook of your left arm, purring as loud as possible. I could get annoyed about all the warm bodies and noise but I just feel so loved in these moments. They just love us and want to be near by. We are one crazy pack but its a pack of love. Even as I write this I’m getting snuggled by 2 of the 3. It’s just the sweetest thing.

Keeping this theme of lovey dovey sunday. I watched today’s episode of Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday. If you don’t know about this program yet check out the website here. She interviews todays spiritual leaders and it’s just eye opening.  Today’s episode was with one of my favorite author’s, Brene Brown. I know I’ve mentioned her before and I’m so excited Oprah interviewed her. Here is part of her bio from her website.... Brené Brown, Ph.D., LMSW has spent the past decade studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness and shame.

Tough topics, right? For me, one’s that hit close to home and I think need to be talked about more. If you get a chance, watch the first part of the interview here. If you don’t have an ah-ha moment yourself, I will be surprised! 

There were so many parts that resonated with me that I have a feeling you’re gonna see a ton of quotes coming from these interviews! So much inspiration! I’m working on figuring out my coaching niche and what I want my practice to be about.  Todays’ Super Soul Sunday is really helping me get clear on it! Here is just one of the quote’s that resonated with me...

 “In the absence of love and belonging there will always be suffering.” -Brene Brown

Does that hit you too? Love and belonging. That’s what we are looking for, what we need to feel whole. I am loved and I belong. 

She went on to say that what we all want is to be seen and heard. Really seen and heard. We have so many “light” relationships these days. Yet, it’s the people who really get us, really see who we are, really take the time to know us, and love us for that person, that mean the most. I want to spend my time with those people. They are truly gifts. I think I am blessed with folks like this in my life and I am just starting to really understand how amazing that is!

So here is to lazy Sunday’s with Triple snuggles, love, belonging, and bacon...Because bacon is for Sundays!
