1. I am completely exhausted. I feel like I could sleep for a week. Do you ever feel like that, kind and gentle reader? So tired that it seems like it would take days and days and days of doing nothing but sleeping to recover?
2. Recovery is exactly what I need. I realized really quickly at the beginning of December that all the things I’d planned to do, to offer and to be, just weren’t going to happen. I was disappointed, but I had to let go, had to lower the bar, and had to be okay with that — and I am, mostly.
3. I’m calling my power back to me. All the ways I am extended and open, giving and doing, all the places where I am reaching out, I am pulling that all back in. Most importantly, I’m letting go of worrying what anyone might think about me doing less.
One wish: That we can settle in to the quiet of this season, sink into the truth of what we really need — love, stillness, nourishment, and rest.
