We made it through the first month of 2023! Whether you enjoyed this month or had a tough start, I invite you to walk into February with new eyes. Let your January worries fall behind, they have nothing to do with what is to come, and step into what this new month has in store for you.
Some of my highlights from January include working on a new painting, laying down groundwork for future projects, and slowly crawling out of holiday hibernation. In truth, January has been a slow month for me, much of the progress I’ve made has not been visible. At times it feels discouraging when things don’t change on the outside, but then I remember that even in the winter flowers are growing though they do not bloom.
And so I want to leave you with this reminder — cherish the season you are in. It is winter, and you are wintering. Take this time to plant seeds and nurture them quietly. To grow roots underneath the surface knowing that in a few weeks, spring will come around the corner.
