“Time passes so fast. Make time to be still.”
― Lailah Gifty Akita
This is the time of year that I have to remind myself to stop and be still. It’s all that hustle and bustle that comes with this busy season that can get us all stressed out. It is easy to feel like we are on overload.
So today and every day throughout December I am trying to spend time just being still. I am intentionally taking time to sit and enjoy a cup of tea, read a chapter in a book and just enjoy looking at the sunrise.
I can enjoy everyone else’s perfectly decorated trees (thank you Facebook friends). I can enjoy the music of the season by singing in the Chorale and by telling Alexa to play Christmas music. I can bake what I have time to bake and I can enjoy being able to share those baked goodies with others.
But my goal this year is to truly be still. To enjoy the beauty of the season and to really immerse myself in enjoying and not being caught up in all of the busyness of it.
Tell me – do you have a goal for this holiday season? Is it like mine to just take time to be still and enjoy? I would love to hear all about it in the comments. Remember each comment this month goes to support our Comments for a Cause – The Haven.
