For many of us, 2020 has been a year of great challenges. Some of us were forced to make big changes while others had the opportunity to identify and change what isn’t working in our lives. When we see that life isn’t happening to us but rather it’s happening for us, we can begin to grow and create on a higher level. You may only be taking baby steps at first but there is a growing momentum that if you catch the wave, it will take you on the ride you have been waiting for all this time. Don’t waste it. Take this time to awaken to the deeper part of your compassionate, loving, creative self that is waiting to be explored!
Peace, love and pear!
