Happy Winter Solstice! As I write this, I am thinking of you and sending you some extra special wishes...
- I wish pure coziness for you - maybe it's in the form of an extra soft faux fur blanket, or a hot beverage in a mug that feels good in your hands, or warm and fuzzy slippers that hug and comfort your ten precious toes.
- I wish you a slower pace and a true break. No zoom calls to be on time for. No rushing. Full permission to rest and recharge.
- I wish you space to feel your feelings. Yesterday I was driving and Frank Sinatra's "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" came on. It brought me to tears. "Through the years we all will be together, if the fates align." This will be the first holiday season I haven't visited my family in Durango, Colorado. And because my parents were going through a divorce last holiday season, I know I'm in good company as I feel the weight of major shifts in this last year. I hope you can make space to honor and grieve all that has shifted for you in the last year and all of the moments that you wanted to share with your loved ones in person but didn't.
- I wish celebration for you. Celebration of all that you've learned this year, celebration of your resilience, celebration of all the ways you've chosen (and choose) to show up for yourselves, your values, your loved ones, your communities, and your world.
- I wish you nourishing moments of feeling grounded independent of whatever is happening around you. If you haven’t seen my Grounding Guide, you can download it here.
- I wish space for you to create something that delights you. Maybe it's a delicious pie, or a brightly colored knitted hat, or a beautifully wrapped little present. Here's a picture of a wreath I made for our front door...
I'm sending lots of warmth and love to you in these final days of 2020.
