"We cannot stop the spring or fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.." ~ Gary Zukhav
January's winter season, the marking of another year, always holds significance no matter where we find ourselves in life. It can be celebrated as an opportunity to begin again, a time to close out the past year and also for reflection.
As pouring rains and blustery winds whip outside my door, I cannot help but feel that nature is reminding us it's time to retreat! She's sending us a reminder to slow down, find peace in the stillness and allow ourselves this special time to envision. To envision giving every day a chance to become the most beautiful day of your life.
Listen to Your Heart
When we listen, we are reminded of what matters most and where we find true joy. You and I were born for joy, though we often forget it amidst the noise, news and chaos of the world.
Our job in this life is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be but to find out who we already are and become it. Trust that your true purpose is being your true self.
