This is your permission.
Permission to be fully you during the holidays.
Permission to be sad about what isn't, while joyful about what is.
To not allow others' anxieties, hang-ups, and issues to become your anxieties, hang-ups and issues.
Permission to feel lost and yet found.
To be whole. To be rooted. To be free.
To feel grounded in the middle of everyone else's chaos.
You get to decide.
You are in charge.
And isn't that a lovely thing?
Sending hugs, peace, and light to you,
