“We came to live life like no one was watching.”—Macklemore
Taz and I are in Chicago. She goes back to college in a couple weeks so we’re having one last hurrah, a girlfriends getaway, just the two of us.
We’re staying at the mighty Peninsula. We can see the Magnificent Mile from our suite. If it’s not ringing any bells, let me just say that this is where all the A-listers stayed when they came to Chicago to bid Oprah adieu.
We’re shopping, going to see “The Book of Mormon” and, of course, making a return engagement to Second City. In the audience, not on the stage.
As I like to say, we’re building muscle, practicing “being” what we want to be—united with all that is, knowing with complete surety that we are provided for in every way.
We’re also performing a secret mission. We brought a stack of $5 bills and we’re leaving them at bus stops, taping them onto park benches, pinning them into clothes at the stores on Magnificent Mile. With each fiver, we’re leaving an anonymous note about the abundance of the universe and how this is just one small sign of how much whoever finds it is loved.
I know $5 isn’t much (One of these days, we plan to leave hundys), but for us it’s about “being” who we want to be–confident, freely giving and knowing that as we give, so shall we receive.
I’ll be back to the blog next week and hope to see you then.
