A Drop of Sunshine
January 2022 - The Year of "And"
This is Newsletter #1 of A Drop of Sunshine and I’m honored that you’re here, spending your time and attention with me. Your time and attention is sacred. Have you forgotten that? Maybe in 2022 you will remember.
We humans are complex creatures. Prone to either-or thinking, and all-or-nothing living, we get overwhelmed and distraught as we strive to build a life we love. I’d like you to meet a little word with a lot of heft:
And is my word of 2022. And embraces all the messiness of my contrary nature and invites a sense of peace and practice into new habits. I can work hard and rest. I can love people and hold boundaries. I can repent and trust God forgives me. I can mess up and still be loved. I can write novels and not write every day. I can work out and skip a day.
There is freedom in and. Maybe in 2022 you will find it.
Until next time, I hope you enjoy this drop of sunshine.
Quote to Ponder:
“To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you you ought to prefer, is to have kept your soul alive.”
