Each year, I share the above quote. And, each year it takes on a different meaning to and for me.
As 2014 draws to a close and I reflect on Rainer Maria Rilke’s quote, what keeps coming up for me is this:
Life is full of mystery and unexpected twists and turns. And blessings, well they frequently (and seemingly) come from and through the unlikeliest of channels.
This is how I experienced transformation this year.
And during this holiday season and on this Christmas Day, it is my hope that you’ll pause to take stock of what has transformed you, as well as what has been transformed by you.
It is also my hope that as one year comes to an end and another begins, you are surrounded by those you know and love deeply; you are resting and nurturing your body and your spirit; and that with an open heart and mind you are getting ready to embrace the mystery that awaits us all — filled with even more transformative experiences.
Wishing you and yours all the best as you continue to celebrate the holiday season and get ready to welcome 2015.
May the New Year be filled with just enough challenges to help you grow, blessings beyond measure, and more than a few surprises that bring a smile to your face and your heart!
Thank you so much for being part of my world, and for giving me the privilege to be part of yours!
