With my Advent calendar at an end today, I wanted to do something special on here, before I pop off for Christmas.
So, I have asked Colleen Chesebro, who blogs at Silver Threading to do a guest post, which she has very kindly done.
Colleen began her blog around the same time as me and has come on in leaps and bounds. I always enjoy reading her posts, which cover a variety of topics. She also hosts a Writer’s Quote Wednesday feature, which you may have noticed I have recently started participating in. It’s good fun to join in, if you ever fancy a go.
So, I was thrilled to bits when Colleen said she would write a post for me about why she doesn’t celebrate Christmas. I’ll let her introduce herself and her post.

What a fabulous article this is! See if it fits you!

How can you tell if you’ve found your calling? As a doctor who was called to medicine at a young age but then wound up disillusioned by the system, questioning my calling, I’ve asked myself this question a lot. It’s been a long strange trip—first leaving medicine, then feeling called back, then leaving again only to find my role inhealing our broken health care system as a writer, speaker, revolutionary, and teacher of physicians.
Along the way, I’ve learned a few things about how to know whether you’re on the right track.
1. You’ll realize you’ve been training for your calling since the moment you were born.
Even the gritty things, the disappointments, the regrets, and the screw ups, they were all prepping you for whatyou’re now being called to do. You’ll realize that the divorce, the bankruptcy, the death of your…

The Winter Solstice

(Image credit: Deviant Art) From the beginning - time was measured with the waxing and waning of the silvery moon; and with the rising and setting of the golden rays of the sun. The tides of the waters rising and falling like breath - the essence of the earth mother herself, enveloping our world in … Continue reading The Winter Solstice
