It’s a New Day

Apr 17, 2024

Outside my window, I see April playing as April does – sun and rain, blossom and snow. On my walks, there is calm beauty and turbulent winds. The light and the dark. The spectacular and the mundane.

I’m keeping this short and sweet, hoping this life message will find a way to reach you.

When I first shared this a while ago, it seemed to resonate. Due to the touching response I received at the time, I’m happy to share with you again here.

When unexpected grief, chronic stress, or the busyness of life gets too much, we may act uncharacteristically. As we falter, we may have a meltdown, lash out, withdraw or numb out.

If you find you’re sinking into doubt, fear, overwhelm, or guilt, I offer you Nina Simone, a music artist and activist from 1965, and this exquisite translation by Anne Magalhães.

Allow yourself to feel whatever you feel with tenderness. With each breath, you can slowly unhook the grip of control and be open to receiving.

​You’re not alone. You don’t have to fix or change anything.

There is no one way to feel. There can be warm tingles and tears.

The language of the soul can be communication without words. Try watching again without sound.

No matter what challenges exist around us and unanswered questions about what’s next, if we can come back to ourselves, listen deeply to what softly rises inside our heart, move our bodies in a way that feels good, we’ll find our rhythm and strength to follow through.

What is one small, simple gift of attention you can offer your body today? Send me a email and let me know.

Warm hug,
