Savoring the still and quiet after the humdrum of the holidays. The magical winter scene outdoors is really conducive to my reflective mood.
I looked back at my first post of 2015 curious to see if I had made any resolutions. (Shows how much I paid attention to my list after putting it out there, eye roll!) I didn’t make a typical list but I said that I wanted to be “focussed, intentional and organized”. I think I did alright with those goals for the most part. I feel though, like 2015 passed by in a blur and many of my friends and family feel the same way too.
Change is needed, especially during this present time of instant everything. I’ve realized that, there is no need to do all of the things, all of the time! Time to press pause and be content in the moment.
Today, I’m not making a list. Instead, I am taking some time to look toward all that is ahead. I’m being purposeful with this exercise so that all the little mundane details that actually make the whole don’t get forgotten and waylaid in the cracks.
A cup of tea and the beginnings of a stripey sock are my companions for this day of quiet contentment.
How was your year? Do you have any goals for the year we have just begun? Do you want to pick up the pace and spread your wings or do you want to embrace slow living? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
I hope you have the chance to savor a still moment or two!
