The Courage to Keep Going

Every where you look right now, you are being called to be Joyful. Every song, every candle lit, every message out there says, “Be Joyful!”, but the Holidays aren’t always joyful for everyone.

When we get busy and there’s noise and activity all around us, we can lose our footing and our imaginations can get away from us, creating scenarios that are fear based.

Soul Time

I ran away for some much needed “soul time” with one my tribe in Chicago for the weekend. It has been both relaxing and grounding in a way that’s different than meditation or yoga or a massage.
