“Tis the season,” so it is said. For some, it’s a season of joy. For others, a season of sorrow. And yet for others, it’s a season of chaos and the feelings of the “unknown.” At Indrani’s Light, we teach a workshop series called, “Live A Brighter Life.” One of the modules focuses on self-care. We talk about daily routines and ways to practice self-care that can be accomplished at a moment’s notice. One of those ways is using the outdoors as an outlet and release of negative energy, or absorb the beauty of nature to fill your spirit up with happiness and joy. Whatever your need is in the moment, nature is calling your name!
Our Director of Relationships & Executive Administrator, Stacie Kenton, wrote an amazing blog this month to get us through the end of the year. It can many times be a stressful time for us, and we need a reminder to take care of ourselves.
In her personal blog, “Savor the Season,” Stacie gives us 4 tips to connect with nature:
Take it outside
Take full advantage of sunny days
Savor the season’s pleasures
We encourage you to GO HERE and enjoy Stacie’s full blog. As Stacie says here …. “I hope you choose to live in this winter and not just through it.”
Indrani Goradia has just returned from India after continuing her global mission to end violence against women and girls. She visited a different city on this trip, and brought back some lessons from her experience there. Indrani was able to teach our Live A Brighter Life classes to groups of women and men, who did a phenomenal job in participating and learning about boundaries, saying “No,” guilt and shame, and most importantly, self-care.
This trip to India was special. Indrani wants to share her experience, and some of the feedback she received from the men, in particular. The lessons Indrani learned from India brought her back home with an urgency to “Break the Silence.”
As we recognize Domestic Violence Awareness month here in the United States, we need to make real change, and stop domestic violence globally. We MUST talk openly about the issue, not just on Facebook, or YouTube, or when standing in front of big audiences.
We need to break the silence and talk with each other, openly and honestly. Daily.

“Let us each make ONE small commitment today to begin to live in our truth, not in our limitations. To live from expansive and glorious energy, not diminutive and restrictive energy. To make strides towards a new and magnificent goal, not just away from a lesser one.” -Indrani Goradia
Be kind to yourself. Be kind to others. Let us lift each other up. Not just today, but everyday.

A dear friend shared this with me and I felt compelled to pass it along….
While the C-5 was turning over its engines, a female crewman gave the G.I.s on board the usual information regarding seat belts, emergency exits, etc.
Finally, she said, “Now sit back and enjoy your trip while your captain, Judith Campbell, and crew take you safely to Afghanistan.”
An old Master Sergeant sitting in the eighth row thought to himself, “Did I hear her right? Is the captain a woman?”
When the attendant came by he said, “Did I understand you right? Is the captain a woman?”
“Yes,” said the attendant, “in fact, this entire crew is female.”
“My God,” he said, “I wish I had two double scotch and sodas. I don’t know what to think with only women up there in the cockpit.”
“That’s another thing, Sergeant,” said the crew member, “we no longer call it ‘The Cockpit’.”
“It’s ‘The Box Office’.”
Quote of the day:
“Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she’ll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she’ll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she’ll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she’ll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.”
