This Advent season:
May you know that -you- are ok even if those around you are in distress.
May you find that the tension is worth the deeper connection on the other side.
May you experience your desires and not merge with everyone else’s game plan.
May you sense that you are as loved and accepted as those who feel that from you.
May you find and celebrate your voice because the world desperately needs to hear it.
May your inclusive spirit bring joy, grace, harmony, and light to those around you.
May you confidently say “No” without feelings of guilt or shame.
May you slow down and listen to what -your- body is telling you, it knows what you need.
May you believe that you belong, and are wanted as you are, not because you defer.
May you courageously design -your- plan for events and experiences and stick to it.
May you stay focused on what matters most even in the midst of discomfort.
May you awaken to the incredible power and energy within you and let it flow out of you.
Finally, May you breathe deeply and slowly out in nature as you pull the many parts of you that have been loaned-out, back into your center.
