Seasons Greetings Heroes!

Every day this week, I’ve woken up to the following lyrics playing in my head from the song “Nothing More” by the band The Alternative Routes:

We are love, we are one
We are how we treat each other when the day is done
We are peace, we are war
We are how we treat each other and nothing more

I believe this is one of the most important messages and gifts that we can give and receive this holiday season (and every day of the year).

This has been a very challenging year for many people. Everyone is going through something no matter how well put together they look on the outside. Life takes us on twists and turns which on any given day, we can navigate to the best of our ability or the worst of our ability.

We’re human.

And as humans, we are connected to one another. We impact one another. We can lift people up or we can tear them down. Our choices and our actions have a ripple effect far beyond our reach.

So for this holiday season, I am sending each of you heart-filling love.

❤️ Love that fills you up to overflow.

🧡 Love that lets you know you are seen, heard and loved.

💛 Love to comfort and lift you up during the dark days.

💚 Love to celebrate you and your victories – big and small.

💙 Love to embrace you exactly where you are, how you are, who you are.

💜 Love to let you know you are resourceful and there’s nothing you can’t navigate in your life.

🤍 Love to remind you that YOU are an extraordinary human being.

🤎 More love than you thought was humanly possible.

Let it wash over you and share it with others when moved to in ways that move you.

Let’s ripple love!

I’ll leave you with another verse from the song “Nothing More”:

And tell me what it is that you see
A world that’s full of endless possibilities
And heroes don’t look like they used to
They look like you do

Merry Christmas Heroes!
