There are many gifts I wish to give you - my community, my tribe of women. I want you to feel loved. To feel safe. To feel valued and seen. I want you to know you are unique because you are you, and that there's absolutely nothing you have to change about yourself in order to be better or more fill-in-the-blank. Where you come from, what you do, who you choose to be, they all make up the beautiful person you've become and what others experience when they're around you. You are magic.
You are the entire ocean in one drop.
My wish for you is of endless words of self-love that you tell yourself. That you may look at yourself in the mirror and speak kindly to yourself. Maybe even smile. I want you to feel both the lightness and heaviness within you, which we all it, and choose to move through both with love.
I'll leave you with an affirmation that I find truly beautiful and inspiring. May all your holiday wishes come true and may find joy in every moment.
I surrender to the ocean, to the moon, to the stars, to the sun, to the earth. Bestowed by beauty all around me; I am humble. I respect life and promise to honor its gift. I will nourish my body and too my soul with the nutrients of love. I am present. - Miann Scanlan
With love always,
