Hello my friend!
We did it! We made it through the holiday season to the other side.... Back to ordinary Thursdays and no special day Mondays....
As much as I love the holidays, it's the ordinary days that keep me happy and grounded. These days have enough space and breathing room for little bits of joy to shine through. Space to empty my brain of all the clutter of thinking and just Be.
Do you know what I mean?
It's like taking a walk around the block, same old walk you always do, but then you notice something special... the way bare tree branches of winter cast a shadow on the sidewalk. Lovely light.
The unexpected, special bits of beauty in the everyday that make now what it is... the best time, the only time we have.
I am so very thankful for this new year and all the opportunities that it presents. Yes, I do have big plans for Sweetgum (I'll share more about that next week). I throughly enjoy journaling resolutions and visions for a year ahead.
But what excites me the most, as we step into 2020, is already happening.
My number one resolution for the new year is to be more fully present and see the beauty in the everyday.
Join me on this journey.
Let’s be more present this year and enjoy the small bits of happiness that show up on the ordinary days of life.
Happy New Year!
