“And suddenly you know: It's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.” ― Meister Eckhart
It's the first full week of 2021! A new year feels like just that: MAGIC. A clean, fresh slate. A brand new book with 365 blank pages. Endless possibilities!
I'm not a new year's resolution person, but I've recently been introduced to the idea of a new year's EVOLUTION - and I just love that idea! Life, for me is about growth, change and evolution. Definitely part of the creative process. We're all creatives at heart, so what will you create this year?
Joy is a feeling that sums up a lot more than happiness. To me, joy speaks to a much deeper experience of something almost too beautiful to describe in words. (I think our human languages are limited in the expression of the soul) Just as doing things from your soul is a deeper experience than simply going through the motions of life.
Compassion, love and kindness are thoughts I have been ruminating on a lot lately. I love the writings and teachings of Pema Chödrön for the beautifully simple truths they contain. One of the most powerful things we can do with our time on this planet is love others. Not in a romantic sense, but in a way of truly loving and accepting everyone around us, exactly as they are.
Flowers blooming, caterpillars becoming butterflies, seasons changing - nature has endless metaphors and wisdom along the journey of our lives. Change, it is constant indeed and sometimes pushing through the discomfort and difficulty of it all, creates incredible beautiful results.
