2016 . . . just a few more days.

So many people have been saying that 2016 was a doozy of a year! It was full, rich with the abundance of life's offerings in all its forms and with a few days of this epic year still afoot, I wonder: What's left for 2016 to fill it to the brim with love, light + care?

In my own world, I'm snuggling up under the covers with my favourite person, a candle might be lit, a few good films cued up, a cup of tea, my journal and pen scribbling away the whispers about new + exciting adventures on the horizon.


unravel to reveal.

For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. 
The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes.   
To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.

~ Marcel Proust 


the key.

What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


gratitude = happiness.

In daily life we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy.
