month of December.
learning what it truly means to “enjoy the process, rather than the result.”
learning practices to take care spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally.
learning ways to reconnect with loved ones and things, whether it’s old hobbies or music or even lost friends.
learning to work hard, but take time out of every day to live in the present.
learning to grow from held regrets, spinning them into areas of growth.
learning how to love before looking for others to fill in that gap.
learning to be proud carrying hearts on sleeves.
learning how to protect and be comfortable alone.
learning to find comfort in imperfections, but making an effort to grow.
December is to discover and understand.
Because it’s okay to lack direction – as long as you keep working hard so your future self can smile without regrets.
