We're quickly moving through the holiday season, end of year reflections and new year celebrations - Hanukkah, Christmas, Yule and today Kwanzaa begins. Habari gani! Umoja! It's good to remember unity within our families and within our communities. #inspireoneanother#holduponeanother
Today, I mark the Winter Solstice and there is much to be grateful for as I look back over 2017. It always feels as if there is an asterisk right there next to grateful signaling ‘even with... the disappointments, detours, and setbacks’. Yes, even those contain the lessons needed to move me closer to me, to my magic, to my center, to my home.
In honor of that feeling of moving closer to our center, I want to give away a @daniellelaporte#DesireMap planner this week. Just leave a comment on what you want to commit to bringing into your life or what you are trying to re-remember about your desires. Between my Facebook and Instagram followers, I’ll pick a winner on Christmas Day. So you have time to go deep. #inspireyourself#inspireoneanother#desiremap “Like an old oak tree in the forest, on a very windy day,
My leaves and branches get tossed about, some even falling away,
I stay here centered in my core, while all around me swirls,
Feeling my strength as my roots run deep,
I am at peace with the world.” #Kaypacha
