Changing the World One Bath at a Time

You can change the world with a hot bath,
if you sink into it from a place of knowing
you are worth profound care,
even when you are dirty and rattled.
Who knew?
~Anne Lamott from Small Victories

A hot bath is a most welcome gift to my dirty rattled soul and in turn, it is a gift to everyone around me. I may not even know how grimy I’ve gotten, how smelly and offensive.

Yet there is profound care in the simplicity of cleansing. Not only am I in need but the world deserves a cleaner me.

  1. Dear Emily,
    what a wonderful post. I wish there were a way to “love” posts instead of just likes. I’m thoughtless right now, and not loving that. And being as I’m broken right now, adopting a dog is not an the cards for a few months. We’ve been dogless since December.
    Sending love on a chilly Northern California morning.
