I am sure you have noticed how everyone is rushing ahead to some invisible finish line called Christmas Day? But not you right? Oh dear. You feeling like you are getting dragged along again too? Remember what happened last year? By the time you got to Boxing Day you were ready to collapse, wanted to shut out the world and just BE. Remember the promises your made to yourself to do 2016 differently? Let’s talk about the speed at which you travel through your day. S L O W D O W N sweetheart. The joy is in the journey, not in simply surviving till January 1st, 2018. I am inviting you to skip the holi-daze and burnout by creating pauses in each day so that you can find the comfort you used to seek only in a weekend or annual vacation, anytime and anywhere. Even in December this year! Holiday Tip: Take a few quiet moments today and make a list of at least 5 things that nurture and re-energize you. It is easier to think clearly and take loving care of yourself if you have a go to list. If you become tired or stressed or overwhelmed this month, you can be sure YOU give yourself what you truly need by checking that list and choosing what feels best for the time you are able to give yourself at that moment. The world will keep going with one less dozen shortbread baked. What the world needs is you as healthy and happy as possible (think about the Who family in Whoville round the tree focussed on love, not stuff k? ) Many blessings, EagleSpirit December 2nd’s Affirmation: * Today’s affirmation comes from the Empathways ~ Affirmations for Sensitive Soul series.
