Happy Monday!! (and happy Easter Monday too!)
I hope that your Easter was blessed, your Holy week memorable, and your Lent transformative. My Easter this year had the remarkable distinction of being peaceful, and that was a huge blessing.
It is such a retreat feeling that I’ve been just savouring blessings – recent and past. Another of those was a most splendid card my Dad sent for my birthday this year:
Be strong. Be proud. Be what you love. Be your passions. Be your beliefs. But most of all … be you. And this will be an amazing year.
I gotta tell ya, considering the past couple years (not my most shining) and the degree to which I’m being what I love just now (terrifying), this was perhaps the most gratifying gift anyone has ever given me.
It meant the world to me.
So I want to encourage you in the same measure I’ve been encouraged:
Be what you love.
Be your passions.
Be your beliefs.
But most of all … be you.
And this will be an amazing year.
