You are the radiant illumination of the Sun!
Every month we have the blessed opportunity to experience the full cycle of our lunar friend, the moon. She moves around our planet so nonchalantly, it is easy to forget she is there until the lights go down and melt into the horizon of magic hour each night and we are blessed to see the big round sphere rise into the sky like a silver gemstone, illuminating the dark, silent earth beneath.
For the past decade I have been blessed to have many friends, teachers and loved ones who are intimately connected to this cycle of life, the cycle of the moon as she goes through her changes each month, reminds us of a very important truth: the process of planting seeds and harvesting the fruit of our labor.
When the moon is invisible, during the New Moon cycle, she is completely dark, for a full 24 hours. Then she begins her evolution back into the light of the sun toward her fullest day - always in perfect patterns, 2 weeks apart, 4 week cycles, 28 day journeys around the earth.
"It is more important to know where you are going than to get there quickly."

Over 10 years ago I had a mentor who introduced me to the concept of 'having a mission statement for my life'. This came at a perfect time for me, since at that time, I was really wondering which direction to go and what was the purpose of my life.
Since then, I have re-evaluated my mission statement many times and even after all these years, mine is still ringing true and inspiring me to continue doing what I do.
