I was running around like a crazy person attempting to put my house together for the 300 different things we have going on here in the next week….
I looked out the window ……..
What the Hell am I doing inside on a day like this?
SO, out we went to do a little exploring and try to breathe for a bit
I was having such a hard time shutting my mind off so that I could really enjoy my time outside with the kids. Trying to turn my thoughts away from the …… ” I should be baking Holiday cookies” ‘ I should be wrapping” ….” I should be getting the house ready for my guests” ” I should be…..( fill in the blank cause I’m sure you have a similar list..haha)
This is a Magical time of year……………..
and it’s also very challenging.
I am struggling to find
It’s all feeling a bit like a juggling act at the moment
”Each moment of the year has
its own beauty.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Those moments are my “happy pill”and I don’t want to miss them. I don’t want to and I can’t. Too many days without time to reconnect with nature, God and myself and I start feeling lost. So, the result is a clean house and a very frazzled, not so grounded me.
I go into nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order. ~ John Burroughs
There is only so much you can do without a Magic wand.
I’m not sure what I’m going to have to give up or change in order to find a little more Balance and time to JUST BE. I’m just going to have to take it a moment at a time and trust my heart to guide me. Trust that I will know what to do and what needs to change. So, right now while my babies are resting…….I “should” be checking things off my MILE long to do list. Instead… I went for a walk and then sat down to write to you. I wonder where the next moment will take me? Hopefully to do some laundry..haha!
I hope that you are all finding the time and balance you need to stay grounded during this very busy time of year. Sending love and peace your way,
My “Magic in a bottle”
This photo doesn’t need words to describe why it made it into my “Magic in a Bottle” LOL His poor cousin doesn’t even see him coming..haha!
Speaking of Balance, I think the “Tarzan” thing has gone to his head. I may have to start calling Him Jane in hopes that it will balance him out a bit..haha!
