Is there something you hope to someday accomplish? Imagine if you started working towards that goal now where you could be at this time next year! If it’s worth it then don’t hesitate to get started – if you wait until everything seems perfect the chance might skip you by.
Feeling stuck? Sometimes the best cure is a brief change of scenery! Step out of your neighborhood, find a new route or embark on a last minute adventure. You never know, you might find something wonderful along the way.
The week threshold between one year and the next can be quite difficult sometimes. With schedules in flux and lingering between holidays, it is challenging to stave off boredom and anxieties about things to come. You might even find yourself longing for your routine! Fear not, the liminal transition will come to an end soon and an amazing new year will begin.
I hope that today you feel full and satisfied – physically, emotionally and spiritually. With only one week left this decade, make sure to make the most of it.
I received some advice for how to handle the holiday. Allow yourself a day of indulgence and go to sleep early. That is exactly what I shall be doing tomorrow! I hope that whatever you are doing, whatever your celebrate, or whatever is going on in your life that you have a wonderful day tomorrow. Be kind to yourself and others, make merry if that’s your thing, if not enjoy the day of suspended reality.
Creativity requires courage to take risks but it is well worth it. Your creation, your art, may uplift and inspire others to be courageous as well.
Although this is a festive time of year it is absolutely ok to not feel festive. Sometimes the holidays can dredge up all sorts of things. Make sure to take time for self care and to allow yourself to feel what you need to feel.
Today is the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. In fact, if you live above the Arctic Circle, there will be an entire twenty four hour period of endless night! For some spiritual beliefs, today marks the beginning of the Yule, and in some ancient traditions the solstice represents the birth of the sun from the Moon goddess. Perhaps many of these traditions were absorbed by later Christian groups that invaded Northern Europe. For many, this is day is a wonderful day to turn your attention inward, take stock of things, let go of what no longer serves you and prepare for the transformation to the new year. If you are reading from the northern hemisphere, don’t worry, beginning tomorrow there will be a few more moments of sunlight everyday for about six months.
Today we descend into winter, but don’t worry, wonderful things are on their way.
There are only TEN DAYS left in the entire decade? Can you believe that? Where did the time go? Think about where you were ten years ago and take in all your accomplishments and leave the rest – enjoy the last ten days of the last ten years!
In ten days, 1980 will be forty years ago.
One foot in front of the other keep chugging away keep moving on, sometimes that is all you can do. Live in the moment and move towards the future.
