I've spent the last few days here...
Sometimes the Universe forces a time out.
On Christmas Eve, I had the tell-tale signs of a forthcoming rest. Scratching throat and little voice. On Christmas Day, I was down for the count.
I've spent the last three days with pots full of tea, Luca and the Christmas lights to keep me company.
I had a head full of things I wanted to get accomplished over the holiday. Experience has taught me that sometimes, it is good to let things go, and to just lean into the stillness. Sometimes this is the only way be still and let go. The Universe knows me well.
It's been one of the busiest years I can remember. So much happened; trips, travel, movings, certifications, a promotion and a whirlwind of other things. Taking a little break, willfully or not, just may be the perfect little Christmas gift.
