January is a favorite month of mine. I also love Mondays. Because there is newness. There is possibility, a freshness, a chance to start again. The new year is a time to simultaneously look back and forward. The songs enclosed are ones that pertain to these things; this hopefulness, this feeling of ambition, the weight of our days, and the wisdom of lessons learned. Whatever you aspire to do, wherever you hope to go this year, know that we’re in it together and I have all the faith in you.

13. Doorways-Radical Face (if you run, listen to this song while you do. This is also another great music video you should check out)

February, the month of love. For some it is a time of reflection on happiness, walking back through the journey you and your loved one have traveled so far. For others, it’s a reminder of their solitude or even past heartbreak. Coming from both sides of the spectrum, I can relate to whichever end you find yourself on. Love is tough! It’s beautiful and fun and hard and messy.  Whoever you share your love with today, your friend, your family, your significant other…do it right. Love them hard. Let it be true. And let this year be one of seeing others through the eyes of love. Those who are unlovable, go out of your way to make them feel loved. Find how your heart is open to receive more love, to experience more compassion, when you serve others and pour yours out on them.
