did i tell you he’s taking dance classes with riki in preparation for the first dance? this is something he would never have done in the past, but he took his first class last week, and actually seemed to enjoy it! now that is truly a conscious choice in a giant positive direction.
riki’s wedding is less than two months away. not only is he going to be prepared on the dance floor, but we’re spending the next few days getting to know scott’s parents. they arrived yesterday from south carolina, took them around the south bay and showed them our glorious part of the country, and today we’re visiting the broad museum. we’re allowing our love to grow. and brian is stepping up big time in his desire to change.
it is incredible what brian will do for his children. truly remarkable. as he struggles with his anxiety and depression, he works so hard to show up and be present. and by the end of the day he is utterly and completely exhausted. no one who doesn’t know his condition would ever know it. because he’s just so good at hiding it.
the change began with loving himself enough, just a tiny bit…enough to want to change his relationship with me and his kids. each day’s a new day, and it sure is beautiful.
