This week I’ve slowed down a bit and given myself more pause breaks. I’ve had to actually. My body seemed to be saying, “No more missy! Whoah!”
It’s all too easy to get caught up in rushing around doing all we think must be done. Pushing ourselves to the point where we forget to enjoy the present moments we are living.
If we’re not feeling the joy, I think that’s a sign to put the brakes on and pause. A little time well-spent gazing at your Christmas tree lights may be just what is needed. At least I can say that is precisely what I needed!
Yep! When you’re feeling blue, harried, tired, sick…let in some light!
Let your thoughts be focused on the light. The light that fills your heart with peace, calm, comfort, love…
Twinkly lights can remind you of what you need to lighten and brighten your day, your present moment, this beautiful season, your life, your New Year.
Give yourself the gift of gazing…deep breaths…sighs…
Pause all the thinking, overthinking, analyzing, worrying and GAZE!
And have a Merry Christmas my friends and family with so much love!
