In this season of Christmas rituals moving quickly into plans for the New Year, it is easy to see that tradition and change are both essential parts of life’s healthy rhythms.
When major changes pile in on you
Without regard for everything else on your to-do list,
Return to the rituals and traditions that renew
And ground you in a deep sense of what you love best.
Emerge ready for new challenges energized
By a reassurance that even in change there is constancy,
If you take time to rest and realize
That whatever you lose in life will be filled again with new possibility.
