I’ve been sure of one thing since my early days of writing and sharing with you. My mission was to create, each time, a special place. One that felt welcoming, supportive, and encouraging. Thoughts that hopefully made you laugh at times and helped you see things from the bigger picture. A ‘world’ you could count on. One that allowed you to be kinder to yourself and fall in love with the light and excellence that are you.
a soft place to land.
This driving thought is one I have held fast to since 2009. Its theme reflected in my courses, membership, and writings—in everything I do.
It’s the thought that wouldn’t leave me alone as I considered what I would write to you now. Here. At the end of 2022 and heading into 2023.
This humanity we wear, with its ups and downs, is stunningly remarkable. I know that most (if not all) of us do not feel or see this about ourselves.
We magnify our weaknesses and rarely accept credit for the light that we are. We need a soft place to land. From this place, our vision clears, our strength renews, and we see that there is work to do and that we are more than capable.
Perhaps this is why the drum beat has sounded in my ears for so many years. One of making sure, as best I can, that you feel better about your life when you read one of my letters. Because it matters so greatly that you SEE yourself in the light.
A ‘soft place to land’ thinking is my way of reflecting the beauty that exists in you so that you can know it. From that place of recognition, you can begin to gather yourself and do the work you are meant to do. (Gathering Light is something I wrote that adds more to this—you can read it here.)
As I thought about writing my end-of-the-year happy new year letter, the words that kept running through my mind were the very ones that have been with me all along on this journey. A soft place to land.
With all the wisdom, humor, and honesty this one gal can muster, I intend to keep true to my mission. I’ve prepared a little video for you that I hope becomes one more thing in your heart to pull out and use for more soft landings.
You deserve beauty, peace, and abundance in every portion of your life.
And perhaps my most important work while here is to remind you.
To the light in all of us…
