Hello beautiful friend.
Welcome to your Sunday audio LoveGram.
Today I send you a tiny brown bird with a yellow belly.
I send you a shiny penny on your path.
I send you a dark sky overhead, studded with stars.
Thank you for being here with me.
I love that we get to share these conversations.
I’m grateful for the times you respond and let me know what you are thinking about or how the audio landed for you!
I’m grateful when you listen and reflect all on your own. Or, maybe you talk to someone in your circle about the ideas here.
It means a lot to have a chance to share what’s on my mind with YOU!
In today’s LoveGram, we are creating space to think about the upcoming holidays.
For some people this time of year can be stressful and exhausting. For others, it feels too quiet and lonely. The holidays can be extra happy and bright. Or, they can feel like a drain on time, energy, and money.
(To listen to the audio, just click over to this page, scroll down, and hit “play” on the audio player.)
There’s no judgment AT ALL for whatever your feelings are about the holidays. I hope you will offer yourself the gift of being able to assess ’em without feeling like there is a “right way” to feel or be.
It is essential to give ourselves room to choose who and how we want to be in our lives — even at the holidays!
So, this doesn’t mean we shouldn’t or can’t choose to go along with some age old rituals that other family or friends love.
It just means we can be intentional about choosing — and not simply stumbling through all the holiday happenings in a trance, as if this is a play and the script has been finalized.
I hope you will take 15 minutes to listen.
Thank you for being here and being someone who cares deeply about living a life that is aligned with who you are and your true values.
Thank you for who you are and for your wonderful, loving heart!
I’m grateful to be on this journey with you.
Seek celebration — even in dark corners,
