Well we’ve made it to the final month of yet another year, and we’re smack in the middle of another holiday season.
How are you feeling?
Take time right now, to check in on yourself.
Close your eyes, take a deep breathe, exhale.
Repeat until you feel the obligations and busyness of the holiday season fall away.
While I’m not scrambling to get to parties or buy gifts for many people, I still feel the weight of December.
In fact, the gauntlet of holidays from Halloween to New Year’s wears on me like an extra large, heavy, wet, overcoat.
It feels like the whole world is squeezing through some terribly tiny hallway.
The swirl of emotions is palpable.
And the days are shorter, nights longer, darkness and winter settling in for a good, long stay.
Light a candle on a dark winter’s night.
Turn the lights off and see how brightly the single flame shines.
Remember that, as you run to yet another party, it is important to take care of yourself.
Radical self care means you will have the energy to shine your light.
