I realize today that I am ending this year with a kind of peace I’ve never experienced before. It’s hard to explain, this feeling of quiet confidence in my art, my life coaching, my decisions, my relationships. It allows me to give more freely, receive more graciously, breathe more deeply. It means I am more open to love and be loved, to trust myself and others, to take responsibility for my actions.

I have worked hard. I have learned important lessons.

I am filled with gratitude.
