A few of my favourite things: Be you

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 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.

 

Be well.
