Joy List Monday -- Be the Light

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
                              --Martin Luther King, Jr.

There is so much about these days that I cannot get my head around. And so, I will do my best to be the light, to be the love. And I hope you will, too.

I'm still feeling my way through the changes here on my blog. I'm still feeling my way into this new year. Things take time and I'm letting them. I'm writing in my journal.*

I'm refining my goals. I'm realizing that I need some self-imposed deadlines, some scheduling. Last week I was feeling a little overwhelmed until I realized that I shouldn't be trying to do everything all at once. It's a sure way to get nothing done (I know this, but it's easy to get carried away by excitement over new ideas and plans).


Take a deep breath.


Be present.

Gratitude always helps with that.
