Just wanted to take a moment to check-in with all of you lovely humans.
I know how exciting this time of year can be. And I also know how overwhelming this time of year can be!
The parties! The travel! The family! Old memories, sometimes heavy, coming to the surface. The food, some of which we can't eat or THINK we shouldn't eat but WISH we could eat, without repercussions or flare-ups.
There's the darkness & freezing temps. For many of you in the northern hemisphere: the verrrrrry cold days and very little sunlight.
There's pressure to recreate yourself and set new year's resolutions because clearly you're not trying hard enough (joking...). And don't forget the pressure to finish the year off STRONG because someone on social media says it's important!
As overwhelming as social media can be, someone so wisely brought up the idea of instead of finishing off the year strong (hustle hustle hustle!!!), why not finish off this year softly, and continue that momentum of ease, delight, and gentleness into the next year, and the year after that, and the year after that...?
Remember! The way we do ANYTHING turns out to be how we live our lives... If we don't like the life we are going to look back on, we have the opportunity to (lovingly) change how we show up and the energy we bring to each moment.
Let this be a moment to consider: How can I let myself soften just a bit more into this moment?
What would this do for me, as I move into the next moment of this day?
Play with this.... try it on... watch what happens.
(Happy holidays and almost new year, my friends. See yourself dancing into the new year with more permission, more freedom, more space to be yourself... you deserve it and the world needs it, too).
