Reflections

Reflections
by Yvette Trujillo, RScP

The year is drawing to a close. For me, this is a season of reflection and intention; it is my favorite time of year. As I gather the scattered and untethered memories using my calendar and my to-do lists as prompts, I realize that so much more took place than can ever be captured by my check boxes and appointments. I cried, I laughed, I celebrated, I loved, and I struggled. This year, I struggled hard. But as I look back, I can see what a joy it is to realize that the past year of living has added another milestone of being the presence and expression of Spirit. In all my flawed ways, in every frustrating moment, and even in all the thoughts that took me spiraling down into the darkest places, I was never alone. As a being of light that is infinitely connected to the entirety of creation, I could never be alone. While I was living through those moments, I didn’t always remember that, but the gift of reflection is the recognition that through every single challenge in every one of my years of this life, I have gotten to the other side. I made it, yet again! And so did you. Hazzah! 

And so it is.
