It’s the holidays and I want to start by thanking all of you who are part of our Creative Genius community. Your emails, your comments, your photos, your work, your love make for such an amazing world. Thank you for being you and sharing you with us.
This has been a fun, crazy, weird and wild year and I imagine it will continue in this fashion as we enter into the unknown of 2017. How is this year any different than last? Well we’ve got a lot of fear floating around, fear of that unknown…. But you and I both know that the ultimate antidote to fear is love. Pure love that pours into and out of each and everyone of us every moment of every day when we let it.
So as you surf the final week of the holiday wave, I invite you to join me in committing to ride the wave with love. To love ourselves and all that glorious complexity each of us brings, and to love each other. You don’t have to love every single person with that deep passionate love you have for those of your friends and family, but you can love what is…and let it be what it is, knowing that when you do, you give others freedom. Freedom is love, and it is what allows you and I to grow into our best selves
Let people be who they are this holiday. Enjoy them and enjoy yourself with them, knowing that whether the tide is high or low, everything has the potential to be awesomeness in every moment.
Thank you for being here. Thanks for reading. If we worked together this year or in the past, thank you for the collaboration.
Special thanks to my amazing team: Emer, Scott, and Brad who help me in more ways than you will ever know. Super special thanks to my wife Julie and Daz and Peyton, our two cairnoodles.
May the joy of the season touch your heart and open it.
