When life is a bit of a struggle and difficulties sometimes linger, or things don't quite turn out how we planned, it's encouraging to receive a little reminder that better times are ahead. We may have to work at it and even ask for help, but change will be ready when we are. Being kind to ourselves in times of stagnation, change or upheaval etc represents an act of resiliency and self-love -- we're worth it.
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.
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.
What we say can have great impact. Words lead to beliefs. Beliefs lead to action. Action leads to change. And change leads to liberation. How we speak to ourselves, the way we talk to others and the thoughts and utterances that we deliver into the world have power.
