This image is from years back. Sixteen years ago, give or take a few. But I found it today when I was cleaning out a box of things and it seemed to fit the quote I've been carrying around and wanting to share here as we celebrate the approach of this new year.
Happy New Year!
"If, like a Cherokee warrior, I can look at the new year as an opportunity to stand on new ground, then strength and courage are on my side. If I have waited a long time for everything to be perfect - and there have been moments, brief as they were, that filled my expectations - then I can face the challenges. I will remember that things do work out, bodies do heal, relationships mend - not because I said it, but because I believe it. But it is time to make things right, to stay on the Path. As water runs fresh and free from the woodland spring, so new life and meaning will bubble up from my own inner source. I will be still and steady because there is nothing to be gained by showing fear in a chaotic world. I can turn from ignorance and prejudice toward a light that never goes out."-- Joyce Sequichie Hifler
May your new year hold many blessings. xo
