At this time of year, there is so often a pause. The flurry of rushing around, completing shopping and to-do lists, shopping, wrapping, hiding, and delivering things is done. Meals have been prepared and eaten and a hush falls over the house.
There isn’t anything that has to be done. Instead, you can just be. You might find it by wrapping up warm and venturing out into the garden, or walking further afield. You might find it by staying home with a warm mug to savour the silence when everyone else goes out. Or you may just look over the colourful chaos of a noisy room and feel a well of thankfulness.
However this season finds you, I hope you feel that touch of everlasting peace and take it with you into 2023.
It is all too easy to draw a line over the ‘old year’ and only look forward to the ‘new year’.
It’s always best to take a few minutes to decide what you need to bring along with you into 2024.
Are there lessons learned, new practices you want to continue? Or challenges you overcame but want not to repeat!
