Timeout for Ritual & Tradition


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.
