When Change Comes …

A new year that's ushered in with a countdown to midnight can often represent an opportunity to begin again, set some goals and hope for better. There's something intrinsically uplifting about the resetting of a calendar that hints at a second chance for us all.

More To Come …

It can be easy to believe that something we're working through or struggling with won't get any better or that the weight we're carrying will only become heavier. For a time, it will feel like things may never blossom, improve, or be fulfilled -- but we haven't overcome everything that's crossed our path so far for this to be where opportunity, growth and love stops. There are more good things to come.

After The Rain

Nature isn’t passive, it’s neither rushed nor aimless. It has vibrancy, resiliency and purpose. It is home to many who rely on its seasons and cycles. It is home to us, and it has so much to share if we just stop and take the time to understand what it can teach us.

Finding Your Way …

Emotional healing can be rest, it can be careful reflection. It can be self-care, confrontation, silence, therapy, exercise and many other things. It’s as individual as we are. There’s no right way to do it, no set timeframe, it’s not even linear. How we piece ourselves back together looks and feels different for everyone — but it is a quiet teacher that will show us all the way forward.
