Light Your Own Fire

It’s a chilly snowy Christmas Day — or, for us Jews, Tuesday 😉 — and I’m home alone in Boulder where I just did something for the very first time…I lit a fire just for me!

I have no idea if this seems like a big deal to you, but I’m recovering from a long-standing habit of talking myself out of things I desire, that would feel nurturing, heart-warming and pleasurable, if I’m the only one to benefit.

This morning I’m so taken by the way this simple act of self-care — placing logs in my fireplace, and then lighting them, just for my joy — clearly illuminates how I’m changing.

     It’s time to light your own fire!

Wishing you a Merry Merry Happy Happy and all that Holiday Jazz
