Enough, already

What if instead you took this moment to look at who you did become? You are not the same person you were a year ago. You have encountered more lessons, and faced them all with grace. Some may have challenged you – you may even think you failed – but in fact, it was the willingness to greet them with an open heart that was the true test.

May this next year bring even more adventure, music, beauty, quickened heartbeats and moments of pure, perfect stillness that remind you that you are everything you need, and everything the world is asking for.

Eventually, the patience, lack of judgment and compassion we develop for ourselves begins to extend outward to others, as we notice the similarities between their experience and ours. This shift doesn’t take anything away from our own work, though, and eventually, you’re gonna hit that spot.  Read More
