falling back, into serenity
turning the clocks back has me feeling excited. joyful. ELATED.
Wait....don't you have little ones? Have you found the magic elixir that keeps them sleeping until a reasonable hour?
The answer: yes + no. While I do have two little nuggets that share my home + heart, unfortunately there is no magic elixir.
I've been feeling this strong + beautiful urge to slow down, to go within, create space, get quiet.
And I'm dizzyingly delighted with even the mere thought of this.
The darkness serves as a reminder to me.
and an invitation to all of us
to be present
+ allow the sweet, tiny, beautiful things we've always wanted our lives to be made of to come to in.
For me it's:
snuggles with my babes
truly listening to my husband's words
wrapping my body in a blanket + sitting by candlelight
drifting off to sleep reading my favorite book
truly savoring each sip of hot coffee
starting my day with a soul replenishing audio meditation
star wishing + moon gazing
filling our home with the smells + sounds of the holidays
hugging, really hugging my dear friends
And the most beautiful part is I know that it's all possible. I just have to choose it.
Friends, what are the things that you'd love your days... your life to be made of?
What would shift in your experience if you made time for the things that truly shine?
