Turn on the Light!

On Tuesday evening, I sat to meditate, in honor of the winter solstice. It was my intention to sit still, breathe and be present in that very moment. I prayed for inspiration and guidance for this coming year. What I received was a deep sense of peace and acceptance. I’ll be holding on to this experience and here’s why.

I usually drive myself crazy, trying to do it all well and produce the results I think I should. This last year, my focus has been on being mindful and accepting of what is instead of fighting against it.

I’ve been focusing on doing what I can and not getting too hung up on the results. I’ve been giving myself permission to relax more and enjoy the nuances of my life. It must be working because I’ve been feeling lighter, more accepting of myself, and truly grateful.

Today, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the support you’ve shown me over the years. You have inspired me in so many ways.

My best wishes for a truly enjoyable season. May this coming year be filled with abundance, joy and fulfillment.

Remember that, treating yourself with the love and care you wish to show others, is often the best contribution you can make to this world. Share your light, your love and inner joy with those around you. You’re wonderful just the way you are.

Blessings.
