Ordinary Bliss

The New Year is one of my favorite times of year. The metaphor of coming light and lengthening days inspires, enlivens, and excites me. While I don’t make resolutions, I do take time to take stock, evaluate the things in my life that serve me, and those that don’t. This year my focus is on authenticity and simplicity, reveling in the small joys that come from a life well-lived. There are so many large challenges, bad luck, bad people, things beyond our control. I think it’s important, in the middle of winter, to take joy in the ordinary bliss of everyday life. (original post January 4, 2016)
