On the Longest Night


The world needs you to go where you want to go and be who you are meant to be.

The world needs you to shine as you were born to shine.

The world needs you as you stumble and fall, it needs you as you rise up, it needs your hands to hold on tight, it needs you to let go.

The world needs your laughter and your power and your grief.

On the longest night of the year, the world needs you to be the light.

  3. I found your post on Christine Kane's blog. I liked it. My word for 2009 is Abundance. I'm recently unemployed, thinking of going back to school and sort of starting from scratch at 40.

    Thanks!

  4. Nice thoughts on a special night. I always acknowledge Winter Solstice as a calm spot in the chaos of this time of year!!

  5. Wonderful, wonderful words Peggy! What a great thing to think about on what is the darkest day, in daylight hours, of the year - about us being the "light" - I love it!

  9. Hello again, Peggy! I did sneak into L&L so that I could drop off Scott Noelle's new books to him. My son is still a little too young to benefit so much from those gatherings. My dearest friend, Anna Brown, is my guide on the RU journey - she has girls who are 9 and 11 - and it has been so amazing to see them grow and thrive .
