Today I send you the sunrise.
I send you a fluffy, yellow, baby chick.
I send you an unexpected check in the mail.
I send you a hot loaf of bread, fresh out of the oven.
I send you a shiny, red RESET button.
Today’s audio LoveGram is all about new possibility.
It is about YOU possibility.

We are two weeks into the brand new year called 2022 and my LoveGram today is all about allowing ourselves — no wait, more than that—commanding ourselves to step into what is possible.
I know these past two years have been filled with grief, illness, and fear. I know that you and your family may be discouraged and disappointed. I know it is hard.
But listen, you are here, reading my words, for a reason.
Something called to you about my mission of feeling more celebration and appreciation.
Something in you knows that there is beauty in our lives, even when we are sad, scared, or uncertain.
Something in you resonates with my own story of that deep depression, when the only thing that saved me was a single pinprick of light. And then the next. And the next.
One moment at a time.
Honeybun, I see your beautiful heart and I understand your deep desire to keep on finding the goodness and the joy in life.
I’m calling on you to step up and be an ambassador of love, appreciation, and celebration.
I’m imploring you to be the person in your community who speaks about the beauty you see, who expresses gratitude, who makes people laugh.
(By the way, I suspect you already are that person, aren’t you? Think about it. Maybe you simply need to acknowledge it more. Or maybe you need to lean into it more.)
The world needs you.
So, my friend, let’s all join hands and ask this question together: “What is possible in this next moment of time?”
That’s all I am asking of you: to look at this next moment and consider what kind of love, what kind of appreciation, and what kind of light you can bring.
Here are three possibilities for you:
- If you’re having a hard time and everything feels bleak, what one tiny movement is possible in order to bring yourself a little comfort or uplift?
- If you’ve got a little bit of energy and you feel okay, what is possible in order to bring some light and love to one other person?
- If you are feeling great, what is possible in order to bring that bright energy to a group of people?
2022 is a brand new set of pages on our calendars. Demand of yourself a brand new outlook.
We can be the ones to help set a tone that is positive and joyful. Even if the world doesn’t look exactly like we hoped it would right now.
I hope you’ll listen to today’s LoveGram.
And I hope that you will fuel 2022 with renewed beauty and joy.
I love you and am so grateful to you.
Thank you for being by my side throughout this pandemic.
Thank you for choosing to step out of the cookie cutter life and be courageous enough to live out loud who you really are.
Who you are is absolutely amazing. (Even when you don’t think so.)
You make a difference. (Even when you don’t think so.)
You MATTER! (Even when you don’t think so.)
I KNOW SO!
Seek celebration — even in dark corners,
