A Love Letter


Every year comes with its blessings, however it has been a year of huge twists and turns for so many. Our weighted breath accompanies our year-end review that includes reflecting on our own health challenges, losses, and disappoint

ments. We also are touched by the heartache and struggle experienced within our immediate circle of family and friends we love, and we all have been shak-en to our core by the insanity, poverty and disasters experienced around the globe. If only we could remember more consistently, consciously and confi-dently that we live on a round planet where there are no sides.


We are all One family. Kind people far out-number the disillusioned and de-ranged who through their misguided choices make it even more essential that we remain committed to embodying the belief that love is the answer to every question.


I was reminded of this powerful story when a dear and treasured friend and talented musician, Simon de Voil,shared with me this amazing version of a song about theChristmas Truce, My Name Is Francis Tolliver ©1984 JohnMcCutcheon/Appalsongs (ASCAP (lyrics https://www.folkmusic.com/lyrics/christmas-trenches-0) Here is Simon’s precious rendition:https://rhondahull.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/12-13-15-Simons-Christmas-Song-1.mp3


Miracles are embedded even in chaos is we are willing to focus on

good. We have a choice. We either to see ourselves as a victim of such circumstances, eventually becoming a perpetrator who passes on pain because we have for-gotten we have another option, or we recognize that we are a powerful co-creator if we are willing to transform our vulnerability into courage by choos-ing to live from a place of love moment-by-moment, relentlessly choosing to be happy rather than insisting on being right.


It is important to acknowledge our past that includes old stories, and misbe-liefs in order to make better choices in the future, but it is essential to no longer live there. The only thing we can change about the past is how we view it. Now is the only moment we really have, and the quality of each ‘now’ moment is what determines and shapes our future.

My mom spoke the truth when she said that the older you get the faster time seems to go. It seems impossible that we sit on the threshold of 2016. The time has come again to turn the page of the calendar and begin anew.

Truthfully, we have that opportunity to begin again in any given moment and with each breath. Forgiveness makes it possible… of ourselves and others. Ra-ther than dread and expect another year of strife, be careful what you wish for. It is so very important that we consciously commit to imagining and focusing on kind and limitless possibilities if we are to expand all that is good. After all, t is our thoughts that become things. As my dear mentor, Wayne Dyer, said, “If we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.”


I have stretched, grown, and created memorable adventures by saying YES when it would have been far more reasonable to say NO. I have done this with

o regrets for greater awareness and love have always been the result. I am blessed by the awareness that we are a spark of the divine, and one somehow despite differences. Struggle is optional, surrender is key.



I am grateful that somehow my life is better because I have the tenacity to make the best of each inhale and exhale. I wobble and waiver, but struggle less because I recognize that I it is my responsibility (most days) to wake up each morning welcoming another day, blessing even my aches and pains, and con-sciously choosing to be all that I can be before my feet hit the floor, curious and open to the adventures ahead.






Wishing you and yours not only P

ace on Earth, but peace of mind, body, heart and soul as well, now, throughout the New Year ahead, and for as long as we get to play together in this form.

Joy-fully in Peace, Be Still,
