reclaiming december // the last post of the series

the darkest days are over. we have just started to emerge from the depths of our caves. not, fully out yet, but awakening. stretching. moving. peering at the light that has pierced through the darkness. that tiny sliver of light that reminds us that we are now starting a new journey. the journey that leads outward. it’s transition time, friends. and we are beginning this journey as changed people. do you feel differently? do you have any different perspectives, thoughts,Read More
