The inner lens through which we see ourselves is often cloudy, out of focus, and sometimes just plain broken. Honest, reliable feedback is hard to come by; even more difficult is the appropriate response and processing of it. Our internal dialogues often belie our outward appearance. We are fragile creatures – may we find resilience to not only endure, but to grow and flourish as well. May we find wise guides to help us along the Way. And may we be kind to ourselves, own our faults, and celebrate our gifts. We are grateful for all we offer the world, each and every day. Blessed Be, and Amen.
