Such a poignant and passionate storyteller, Nikolina reminds us of the extreme harshness that still exists in this world. At the same time, she finds a way to exude light and positivity and encourage us.
It’s amazing when you write where it can take you. True. Not every day looks or feels the same, and sometimes we just need to take a break from even the good stuff. Rest. And go at it again tomorrow. These days, more than ever, our personal and work time require care and balance, a thoughtful steadiness that is sustainable and brings out the best in each of us. May 2021 see us all rise to new occasions and opportunities. Fill our cup. Stay safe and well and kind.

I will make a little more time for comfort and sanctuary this season. I won’t try to figure it all out. I won’t be hard on myself if I don’t get the tree up. Maybe it’ll happen. Maybe it won’t. Either way, it’s okay. Christmas is always in my heart. I will embrace a day at a time. Enjoy the moments with family. Hugs. Smiles. Laughter. Tears. Breaking bread. Counting blessings. Looking forward to the new year.
