It has been an introspective day. So many things swirling around my mind — creativity, finances, spirituality, relationships, love, faith. It feels like another important transition period, a time of evaluating priorities, making a concrete plan.

I just finished reading A Return To Love by Marianne Williamson and found it to be so full of wisdom and illumination that it was impossible to digest it all in one reading. It took me a while to get into it, but once I did I realized what all the fuss was about. The overarching message is that we can choose to approach every situation in our lives from a place of love. What a beautiful challenge.

Once again, I feel as if I read a book precisely at the time I needed to the most. It played such a significant role in my weekend of deep thought and profound relaxation.

Happy Independence Day to me.
