I just can't believe how quickly this year has flown by. I feel like I just keep saying that. But life is moving faster than I can keep up.
I have had the loveliest last couple of months even if I have definitely been disregarding responsibilities like these. I know I promised a post once a month and I've been really lacking in that regard. But I'll always come back to it. Sometimes you just need to take some breaks. And for me that included quitting my day job and accidentally taking off two months. And I've spent that time re-painting every piece of furniture in our apartment and feeling like every piece is now brand now which has been so much fun. I've also been reading again. And I mean DEVOURING these books. I haven't read this way since I was a kid and it has felt so good. I've spent less time on social media, less time focusing on the outside world and just getting lost in these stories.
I can literally feel my nervous system coming back into regulation. There is a tightness that has been in my chest for about two years that I feel has finally shifted and allowed for space and peace and joy to come back in. That has been a wonderful feeling.
I know this time of year just gets whackier and wilder. But the week between Christmas and New Year's is always one of my favorites. It feels like everything should just close and we should all be able to crawl into little holes and hide for a week. Shut it all down and just reset before we walk back into the new year and start it all over again. I know that's not possible, but I'd like to think it is.
I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season. My best wishes to you and yours. Take care of yourself and keep breathing. <3
