This week...

My favorite week of the year, the week between Christmas and the New Year.  New Year's Day is without doubt my favorite day of the year.  The week leading up to New Year is especially poignant and introspective for me.  I relish it.

I love new beginnings, fresh starts, cleared slates, clean pages, new chapters, wrapping up.  New Year brings renewed energy and expectation.  No resolutions!  Merely a day on the calendar to remind me to say "yes."

This last year was full of change and lessons, surprises and upheavals.  In the end it allowed me to remember who I am and what matters to me.  I walked away from managing and suffered significant withdrawal symptoms.  I sat with myself; I sat with mySelf.  I came back to me...

What I wish for us all is a new year to move more steadily in the direction of authenticity and faith --authentic faith.

Here is my New Year's card for anyone reading this:  May you embrace your unique and distinctive Life; may you readily share your Life with the rest of us; may you remember you are not alone, that it is good that you are here among us.  Amen.


  1. Thank You so much for your words. I really needed to read that tonight.

  2. Dear Robyn,

    That is the loveliest New Year's wish I have ever received. I am going to print it out on a card so I can post it over my desk and remind mySelf frequently of who I am.

    Thank you so much for your deep sharing of who your are. You are welcome here.

  3. Hi Robyn, I agree with Shirley Norwood on all that she said. You have always been generous with sharing who you are and given others courage to do it. Love, and best of everything to you in the New Year!


My hope is that each blog entry serve as a conversation starter...please feel free to join in!
