Hi friends! The other day I was chatting with a pal and we were talking about how we each aspire to have rituals around the lunar cycles (specifically the New Moon and the Full Moon). My brilliant buddy noted that she read my issue a couple weeks ago on accountability and she asked if we could be accountibili-buddies for the lunar cycles. I said yes, of course. As I mentioned before, accountability is what works for me so I’m going to lean into it wherever I can. Acknowledging the moon phases will add a bit of structure to my life which feels pretty chaotic and I’ll have a small chunk of time every couple weeks where I can be fully present and do something for myself. At the end of this newsletter issue I’ll link to my document of what my rituals entail.
I guess the other lesson from this is: be careful what you put out in the world because someone may hold you to it!
This is the last “essay” issue of this newsletter before Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving remains a trash holiday. It’s a reminder of the genocide of millions of Indigenous people and we should all spend the day learning about it and honoring the Indigenous people in our country. Here are 8 ways to decolonize your Thanksgiving.
