awakening


I wish I could bottle these days, you know, the days in between the holidays, where you find glimpses of stillness and silence. I have come to realize that 2013 was the year of getting to what matters. Not that I dismissed the lessons and chapters of the all the in between, it's just that somewhere along the way, the day came where I beautifully surrendered to the map of my story, which led me to the important things in life.

"The coming to consciousness is not a discovery to some new thing; it is a long and painful return to that which has always been."- Helen Luke

I am forever grateful for 2013, God remains my strength in life, and I can't wait to see what 2014 brings our way. Happy New Year, my dear friends!!

PS: Thank you for the kindest notes, on my being back in this little space. x

May you have the best of new years Christina!

The week between Christmas and New Year has always been my favorite time of year...when everything has slowed down yet the family are often together.
