"All we have to decide, is what to do with the time that is given us." - JRR Tolkien
Mid-November is a time where my stress levels start to rise.
My mind tends to race thinking about all of the things that I 'have to do.'
My to-do list grows at epic rates. Who is hosting Thanksgiving? Do we have to travel? Do I have to make homemade crust for my pie? What do I have to bring to the party? How many gifts do I have to buy? You need what for the school party? How will I get all the things done? You seriously ‘need’ me to buy eggnog….do we ever actually drink it?
Within all of the have-to’s, I can easily get detached and distracted from what this season is about and how I want to feel. Recently, I’ve been slowly and gently moving out of that old story and mindset, but still I am challenged to keep things simple as we shift towards the end of the year.
This year I want to turn down the chatter, the hubbub & the noise and find ways to savor this gorgeous time of year.
I want to call in what I want to create and do, by being mindful, intentional and by simplifying.
During this season, I want to feel connection & joy with my friends and family. During this season, I want opportunities to make memories & laugh. During this season, I want space and time to pause, reflect and be grateful. During this season, I want to give and receive from my heart. During this season, I want to create warmth, love and light in my home.
