“We sense that ‘normal’ isn’t coming back, that we are being born into a new normal: a new kind of society, a new relationship to the earth, a new experience of being human.” ~ Charles Eisenstein

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday my dearest love,
Happy birth day to you.
Do you see the stars sparkling brighter today,
Do you feel the new skip in the milky way.
Do you hear the butterflies sing like honey bru,
It is all, all for you.
The sun is brighter,
Our spirits are lighter,
Cause it’s the day when there was a new heart beat,
A Magician was born, with his smile so sweet.
Everything he touched dazzled and shone,
He could conjure rainbows in the darkest of storms.
His words flowed like poetry, filling the sky,
He could captivate all hearts in the blink of an eye.
So the galaxy rejoices today
Celebrating his special birthday,
Presenting a white cake with strawberry frostings,
And with candles that clap, wink and sing.
Come on you, all of you, put on your birthday caps,

I dug deep, reevaluated my annual goals, and I decided…

Why do we wait? What makes us hesitate when every fiber of our being screams for us to seize our dreams? Do we want to grieve time lost and ask ourselves “what if”? What if we dared, acted courageously, ignored fear and naysayers who undermined our enthusiasm? We can’t afford to accept other’s opinions and discount our belief in ourselves. We have today with no guarantees for tomorrow, next week, or years from now. Why should we compromise, settling for a path which forsakes our true vision?
We are creatures of habit, and we love predictability, structure, and routine. It can be difficult, and stressful but continuing along a route that does not honor our inherent integrity creates deep-seated anxiety. Personal transformations require conscious intention, trust in the reason and purpose for the alteration, and a viable reward for enduring the struggle. But change can also be a positive force…
