There are just a handful of days left until Memorial Day. How are you celebrating this three day weekend? For me, the holiday signifies the start of summer and all that the warm season brings. Superficially, I’m reminded of the things I love like barbecues, tank tops and flip flops and the things I could do without such as termites, cockroaches and hot weather.
But on a deeper level, the summertime brings me back to new beginnings and a fresh start. The hope of facing old fears, the courage of tackling new inner battles and the ever present possibility of a better me, one that’s closer to loving and accepting who I am warts and all. It’s something about the season, more than at the beginning of a new year (maybe it’s the shedding of our outer coats) that brings me closer to my authentic self.
As you shed your outer layer, I hope you too will not only enjoy the summer season and this upcoming holiday to its fullest, but that you will grow closer to who you are truly meant to be. May these top five posts help get you there!
