‘Tis the season to do a lot of things well or wrong, too fast or too slow.
For me I do all these things mostly at once. There is baking and hosting and cleaning and family I want to see and then there is knitting and writing and not enough time for either because something is in the oven or needs to be or has burned in the oven or someone is coming over and napkins need to be ironed and lets not forget decorating and all of a sudden it is midnight or 4AM and neither time is my best time and the list is still long.
It is like I conflate an entire year of want-to-do or need-to-do into six weeks.
I posted a list I found about Nine Types of Rest here is one: Stillness to decompress.
At the end of this week I plan to practice some stillness. And go to a new bookstore, find a chair, and kill time looking at something for a while. Then I am going to drink a hot, big, over-the-top coffee drink. And walk in a park. Or, stay in bed all day with a book. We shall see. Hold me to it?
What will you do to find rest in this season of joy and heartbreak?
