It has been a year of expansion, collaboration, support, new risks, and soul delights. I discovered a deeper reverence and love inside for the Divine Feminine; I gave myself permission to be, have and do more of what I truly wanted; and I walked alongside loved ones as they prepared for their transition beyond this earthly body.

My sacred calling has beckoned me to travel more, listen more, work more deeply with others more and continue to re-invent what I offer to serve in a greater way.

It has been a rich year which has also held times of self-doubt, fear of loneliness, and moments of wondering is this really what I am to do? The past twelve months I have watched my grandson dance through his sixth year of life on happy feet and saw us all grow a bit older.

I have sought the solace and divine connection inside with more fervor and also had times of being swallowed by the mania of the world. I have bounced back and forth between accepting it all, loving it all – and judging it all. I have appreciated my humanity more and become less concerned with the standards I set for myself about who I am supposed to be.

I have not allowed my hair to turn grey nor have I lost my vanity about looking younger than my age. 

And I have forgiven…myself, those I love, my past, the world and sought to see it all through eyes that have not forgotten innocence.

And on this solstice…

May all that is unforgiven in you
Be released.
May your fears yield
Their deepest tranquilities.
May all that is unlived in you
Blossom into a future
Graced with Love. – John O’Donohue

Blessings to you and those you love as the light returns,
