hello there, friend,

you write about change, the one constant... which is such an interesting irony. i think we all resist change to some degree, forget that for growth we need to lean in to our feelings or our circumstances instead of resisting them. we forget how important time for processing is, that whether talking or writing or thinking... it takes time.

the timing of christmas... for many of us just after the shortest day of the year has me thinking about light and dark, old and new, endings and beginnings. the paradox of needing one in order to have the other.

as we end this year and begin a new one, i hope to revisit some important questions... what fills me up? what makes my heart beat quickly? where do i want to invest my time and energy? and then the opposite... what has drained me? what do i need to let go of? what do i dread? hoping that as i move into the new year the answers to these questions inform the decisions i make.
