The holidays is a time of year where things can get so busy that we get run down and forget to take care of ourselves. Indeed, with gathering, work obligations, friend and families…it get get downright overwhelming. And then…
And then quick as a flash, quick as it got here, the Holiday season of running at full speed and then some is over. A countdown to resting as the countdown to the new year was done. And it has been wonderful, with lots of family, friends, get together s, music, trips and travel, incredible food and love.
Yes, this New Years was the best I have ever had, and there is indeed much for which to be happy. I am exhausted, sick with a cold, the house is a mess, washing machine needs fixing, and laundry needs to be done….and it was all worth it. Every second. It was amazing. Many smiles, laughs and memories were made. Life was truly lived in these moments.
But now it’s time to go back to normal life, before the holidays. GO back to work, go back to regular days, and going to the gym. But mostly for me, right now in this moment, it is time to slow down and rest a bit. And when you won’t, life has a way of making sure you do. When I get run down, from too much of everything, I get sick. It always happens when I do too much at once. And this year is no different. I am down for the count with this awful cold. So rest, and relaxation are in order, along with chicken soup, cozy blankets, snuggling with the kitties and binge watching a few TV shows.
Sometimes you just have to take advantage of the Resting.
