We made it to 2022. I'm amazed.

Now, its not like I was doubting us, but if you are like me, you had some pale-knuckle moments in 2021. And I know so many people (myself included) who had days that were just so bad that it was hard to figure out what to do next. If you made it through a day like that, or helped someone else through a day like that, or even if you just gave a woman at the supermarket who was having a day like that a wide berth, thanks. We all thank you. You rock.

Now that we're at the start of a new calendar year, I am hoping that we all can start a new and more joyful spiritual year too. I am NOT a fan of New Year's Resolutions. (In fact I am just being nice by saying that because I actually think they suck - they put icky pressure on us and often set us on a path to failure instead of one to rowdy, badass levels of joy.) BUT I am all about harnessing this time of newness and potential to check in and envision what's important to us for the months ahead. I do that in a bunch of ways, but one of my favorites is making vision boards like the ones below - for some reason, assembling images that make me feel good really helps me shine a light on what my subconscious is saying. Its also a no-pressure activity, which is what I need during these long evenings when it is cold. 

Lux et Umbra has some super offerings coming up this year to help you illuminate - yourself, your vision, your world. I'm excited to share them with you. in the meantime, stay warm, healthy, and full of light.
