Reeling in the Years
I am looking at my time and seeing that it is finite. How do I want to spend my days? I am looking at my habits and seeing which ones I want as part of the next decade, at my relationships and how I can deepen them, and at my values and how I can live them more fully. I am counting my many blessings and thinking of how I can honor them. I invite you to do the same.
Even if you aren't having a hallmark birthday in this season, think about prepping for your own new year. The dark short days offer us encouragement to slow down, rest and turn inside for a time. Take time for a personal inventory. Spend a quiet evening or a rainy day in contemplation of where you have arrived, and redirect to where you want to end up.
ps-- the picture is of a dahlia, still blooming even in all this cold dark wetness. I like the sleeping bee nestled in there--
