It's such a busy time of year. Carve out a little time to take care of yourself. This might be calling a friend, grabbing a warm drink, or making a gratitude list. You know what would feel good for you. (Holiday preparations and paper grading do NOT count!) Be gentle with yourself. It will give you the strength to be gentle with others over the next few weeks.
I'm sending you so much gentleness and courage and strength. You are doing a great job at this thing called life--even if you don't fee like it today.
I hope your planning to join me for a fun play day in January. I'm so looking forward to our time together!
