And the Wheel of the Year turns once again. We find ourselves once more leaving behind the year that was and stepping into the year that will be.
Will it be full of challenge as the last few years have been? Yes.
Will there be plentiful moments of laughter, grace, hope, and joy? Of course.
It is in some ways ever the same. The opportunities to learn and grow, to stretch into our better selves are ever present. We may mistake them as injuries or wounding, as unfair treatment by others, as systems that have failed us.
Or we can welcome them as teachers, as guideposts carefully placed in our path to invite us into deeper knowing and compassion of ourselves, one another, and the world that we share.
2023 will be hard.
2023 will be glorious.
2023 will be full of opportunity.
If only we see it as such.
Blessings on your journey,
Louisa has always enjoyed writing and is thrilled that she now has a way to share her musings with a larger community of like-minded seekers. Her writing is often an extension and exploration of the struggles she faces in integrating her own spirituality, scholarly study, life experience, and nuggets of brilliance from her teachers in the hopes that it might alchemically transform itself into something approximating wisdom.
