"Be the Painter of Your Life"

I took last week off. It was Christmas Eve, and I just needed some solitude away from screens. I hope your Christmas (if you celebrate) was wonderful. 

The year 2023 is drawing to a close. There have been many gifts during this year, but of course, there were many challenges as well. Many of us take stock on New Year’s eve now. It is not the wild and raucous night it may have been in our youth. For me at least, it is a very quiet, introspective time; a time of reviewing the past year and looking into what I want to let go of and what I want to call in to the new year. A clean slate that each of us has mastery over. The words of William Kent Krueger come to mind, from his wonderful book, This Tender Land:

“Open yourself to every possibility, for there is nothing your heart can not imagine that is not so.” I am carrying this with me as 2024 will begin shortly. 

Wishing you all a blessed, healthy, joyful, abundant, and peaceful 2024. 

This is from my dear friend Corina Luna Dea, who is always such an inspiration. I share it with you today, with her blessing. It is also my wish for all of us in 2024. The lines “Be the painter of your life and the poet of your soul,” really speak to me, but it is inspiring in it’s entirety! I hope you enjoy.
