new year’s day

When I started showing up

as the woman I wanted to be,

the world began responding to me;

showing me all the different ways

I needed to keep moving,

and healing,

and growing,

and stretching beyond myself,

beyond anything I had ever

reached before.

When I started showing up

as the woman I wanted to be,

the world led me to a place where

I could finally say,

I am her.

~April Green

how will I know this is a fresh beginning? after all of the other fresh beginnings?

inquiry for today~ how to keep it all simple?

the reverence of beginnings

Whatever wishes to grow within you- a curiosity, a talent, an interest-

is life seeking its expression through you.

Our old desire for comfort, even happiness, may prove an impediment.

We are here a very short time.

Let us make it as luminous and as meaningful as we can.

Time to stop being afraid, and time to show up as yourself.

~James Hollis
