Just as a bitterly cold winter day delivers sun dogs,

There is beauty within that which seems bleak.

You. Are. Radiant.

Made of diamond dust

And sun star light.

all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.

Life, Itself

light at the end of the tunnel

I watched a movie the other day called “Life, Itself.” At one point a character in it had an Aha moment about story writing and life:

  • Our lives are our stories, and become told as we live them out.
  • The narrator tells our story. Due to varying perceptions, both between and within individuals, the idea is made that we all are an Unreliable Narrator .
  • Life unfolds and occasionally throws us curve balls.
  • Life itself is actually the unreliable narrator.

When your loved ones are seeing through a lens of frustration and negativity, do you help them see another way by sharing your perspective of optimism and light?

How does that go for you? For myself, I have noticed that as a species we seem to have an underwhelming appreciation for being offered a way out of wallowing when we didn’t request it.  (Myself included. How about you?) In the past I’ve used some helpful approaches to keep me sane in this situation, but the other day I learned one that blew my mind, leveled me up, and elevated not only myself but my relationship.

Love yourself. Don’t wait for someone else to love you. Don’t wait until you lose weight, find the love of your life, or get that dream job. The time is NOW, just as you are. You are enough. If you hold ANY story that gets in the way of you loving yourself, let it go. Rewrite your story.

–Carrie-Anne Moss, Fierce Grace Collective

Happy New Year:
