Sunday Thinking

“If you've forgotten the language of gratitude, you'll never be on speaking terms with happiness.”

The weekly Sunday Thinking newsletter is quick-hit content that aims to provide a booster shot to your thought process as you end and start your week.

"We're each walking our own journey, and sometimes it's a hard one: a divorce, a career change, grief, or a major life transition. These chapters of our lives can leave us feeling lost and overwhelmed thinking, "How did I end up here?" Most often, the answers we tell ourselves make us feel either stuck on the path or stuck in shame. We are uncomfortable with the discomfort that life inevitably presents. But another possibility is that we allow this question to spark curiosity that inspires and invites us to keep going, step by step, until we arrive on the other side of our journey."

Yasmine Cheyenne, Wisdom of the Path

II. Loss: A Path to Clarity

Not everything you lose is a loss.

  • Some things are a freedom. Some things are a second chance. Some things are a miracle in disguise.

  • Some things are a detachment long-needed, a clarity brought to blurry eyes. Some things are an intervention.

  • Some things are the unexpected answer to a long chanted prayer. Some things are a healing. Some things are a becoming.

  • Some things are planned long before you ever came to be. Some things are devastation, but others are a kind of vital guidance, the kind of course correction you did not even know you needed.

The kind you did not even realize you were asking for all along.

III. Evolving Without Limits

There is no final version to you.

  • There is no finish line to growth.

  • There is no end to your progression.

  • You’re an endless draft, a poem in constant revision, a story with infinite pages.

Allow yourself to become whoever you want whenever you want without rushing your evolution.
