Advent Calendar Blog 2022 – That’s A Wrap

Has it already been twenty-four days since I started on this year’s Advent Calendar Blog?

Advent Calendar Blog 2022 – Grounding in Times of Stress

Advent Calendar Blog 2022 – The Power of Affirmations

I let go of what no longer serves me. This is an affirmation that I repeat to myself daily, as a reminder that I do not wish to hold on to grudges, resentment and the need to be right.

Advent Calendar Blog 2022 – Having Coherence with the Universe

There are a few people in my life with whom I have synchronicity.

Advent Calendar Blog 2022 – What is your gift to give away?

Could you name your five greatest talents, if asked? By talents, I mean a natural ability to do something, like having a green thumb, or a beautiful singing voice.

Advent Calendar Blog 2022 – Embrace Imperfection, Know that You Will Be Judged

Do you have the courage to be authentic today?

Advent Calendar Blog 2022 – The Tapestry of Life

Advent Calendar Blog 2022 – To be or not to be….

Everyone tells us that the best way to be happy in life is to do what you love.

Advent Calendar Blog 2022 – Doing Your Best

We’ve all been given the advice to « just do your best » at one time or another and I wonder if like me, you are left pondering what exactly that means.

Advent Calendar Blog 2022 – The Voice

Can you name something that you are doing, but might not be aware that you’re doing it? How about self-talk- as in talking to yourself, your inner voice?

When I am feeling stuck, or unmotivated, I often try doing or learning something new and it usually is just what I need to fire up my creativity and get the sparkle back.
