Dear <<First Name>>,
The Summer Solstice is upon us once again. It's time to brighten things up a bit by getting in touch with our own Inner Light. I suppose that's exactly what I have been doing. For me that has meant that I have needed to release some old habits. In my 49 trips around the sun, I have been known to be a bit of a fanatic when it comes to my schedule and with keeping a routine. However, as of late, all of that just doesn't feel right. Case in point, my inspirational monthly newsletter. I haven't felt like writing it...and so I haven't.
Usually, I am pretty demanding of myself. In my mind, that means that without fail, the newsletter must go out on the first of the month and here it is the 21st and well, let's just say, it's going to be short. I recently told a girlfriend of mine that I feel like Santa in the Christmas special, "The Year Without A Santa Claus." He was tired and wanted to take the year off from delivering packages. I feel much the same. At first, I spent time feeling guilty about my resolve, but then I thought that this is exactly where I need to be in this moment of now...And it's all good.
Ergo, instead of spending a lot of time writing, I have been spending time with a new hobby. I recently discovered coloring books for adults. When I first read the article about it, I thought to myself, "Hey, I need to get in on that action!" And so I have. Let me tell you, I have been on a coloring frenzy! It is a wonderful way to get my creative mojo going, not to mention it is a big stress reliever. One can't help but be in meditation mode, while shading in the various spaces.
So, I decided to share a few of my works with you. My first coloring book's theme is about nature mandalas. I can get in touch with the nature around me, by seeing it in a whole new way, all while I am reflecting on the wonders of the Universe. With each stroke I take, I think of how the piece I am working on relates to me in this moment of now and I feel energized by it.
That being said, while this may not be my regular installment of inspiration, I can see that I am being recharged and doing exactly what I need to be doing. In the process I am re-birthing a new and better me. I am not certain when the next newsletter will be out, but in the meantime, I am sending us all a bountiful amount of Love, Light and Abundance.
Until the next time,
