There are so many things I want to write at this time of year. About end-of-year reflections. About finding peace and space during the holidays. About how our creative endeavors matter even if it doesn’t seem like anyone is paying attention.
But the thing that rises to the top is a simple reassurance for us all.
It’s okay if your life doesn’t look perfect.
It’s okay if you didn’t have the best year ever.
It’s okay if you aren’t feeling the holiday cheer this year.
It’s okay if you don’t know where you are going, even though you know it’s not here.
If you didn’t meet your goals, it’s okay.
If you aren’t measuring up, it’s okay.
It’s all okay because no matter how things appear or how you may feel, you are bigger and better than anything you can imagine.
Let’s all trust that it’s okay and see what happens.
