This year, I have learned deeply, with tenderness and sincerity, that there is something very powerful in recognising when we have reached the end of our capacity.
2018 and 2019 have taught me that sometimes the traumas we thought we had resolved in our lives will demand to be resolved again and again. And in these moments, I have tried to stop and consider how I can care for these vulnerable, sensitive and tender sides of myself that are expansive rather than constricted elements of my being.
And now, as I sail deeper into adulthood and self-honouring, I find myself entirely comfortable with honouring both lightness and whimsy, but also a space that also allows for grief, darkness and the permission to invite reflection.
Like the beautiful Winter Solstice of this season, this period symbolises that darkness always comes, and when we’re in it, it feels like it lasts forever. But it also reminds us that the light comes back, eventually. Slowly and gently it reappears softly at the edges, reminding us of this gracious balance that we seek.
In the meantime, I want to press deeper still for the whimsy and light of life that illuminates with more vibrancy when we sit with the darkness of our emotional life with utmost honesty and intention.
Whatever the new year will bring I want to attune deeper to my innate self-worth, feel grounded in my body, feel supported in owning my right to be wholeheartedly myself, sensitive, to care deeply about people and wanting to make a difference in the world, while having an unconventional lifestyle of travel, adventure and spaciousness.
Wishing you a new decade full of love, blessings and space for honouring yourself deeply always.
Before I go, I just want to thank you endlessly for being here with me and for supporting my space here. Being vulnerable enough to share my heart here means so much. If you would like to heart-riff with me and hear more of my thoughts and words I would be honoured to connect via my Whimsy Wednesday letter. You can sign up right here.
With love and endless best wishes,
