Dear friends, with the passing of another year, you and I are offered the gift of a fresh start, a new chapter in the book of life.
In hopes to gain a clearer vision for the year ahead, I have been deeply reflecting on 2021, feeling into the challenges that have filled not only my life but all of those around me.
As isolating as our lives have felt, there remains a shared sense of community as we are all in this together. A remembering that we are each part of the whole. Again and again, we are asked to show more compassion for one another, to raise our awareness and respect each other's differences.
Through layers upon layers of change, one atop the other like an onion, each layer is woven into another texture, taste and emotion. I realize this is a path I have never traveled before and the way that I choose to walk it matters. I am reminded it is fear that keeps me from living in the present and keeps me stuck in the past. It is time to soften and allow the pattern to rearrange itself into the next chapter that is my life.
In the next chapter, rather than setting goals, I have decided to "live the questions."
I hope my sharing will invite you to pause and ask yourself the questions – ask your own questions...
