The friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you. Elbert Hubbard

Memories rise up. People we have spent time with and those we no longer can see, come visiting in our minds and hearts. Memories are a good thing. We fear the tears, the loneliness, and we long for connections.

What I appreciate about the human spirit is we get to begin, again. We get to be brave and make up new traditions, break some rules, and allow who we are today to simply be happy.

Some people have communities and others don\’t. Some join with friends and some with family. Some think the grass is greener on the other side. Bottom line, many thoughts wave bye during the holidays.

What I wish for you, is that no matter what, you return to being kind to yourself and treating yourself well.

Change happens. You won\’t be forgotten. Be sweet to you and find what will nourish and nurture you during the holiday.

Make this holiday a practice of something you choose that honors you.

Maybe you want to ask for help in your inner world where you close your eyes and ask within for some help and in your outer world where you see what is right there in front of you.

Take good care,


Change is inevitable. Get Ready. Get Support. Life transitions need a hand to hold.
