January: Month of Abundant and Barren

Happy New Year! For January 2021, I’ve chosen the contrast of abundant and barren as my monthly theme.

After months of thanks and celebration, what I consider the abundance of Life, January starts us off with a new slate that feels empty, yet with hope.

I find the months that end Winter feel barren in comparison to its start and I know it prepares for new beginnings. Though I long for warmth and life, I know I must wait patiently to experience the next phase of abundance in Life.

The contrasts that Life offers always halts me with wonder. A reminder to appreciate what is despite the desires I long for. Whether Life appears abundant or barren, it offers various gifts to explore and capture the full essence of Life.
