Coming Down from the Holidays
I don't make New Year's resolutions, but I do try to orient myself so I can start working in a direction of a goal. I feel I need to start spending less time being surrounded by chatter, noise, and music and more time just being. I realize one of my most favorite times of the day is when I get up earlier than Shug to write my blog post for the day. While I truly enjoy the blogging part of my early mornings, I have discovered I love the silence, too.
When I let Ruby out into the dark morning after we've been all snuggled up in bed, the cold and the heavy quiet have the most calming and invigorating effect on me. These opposite feelings are also coupled with a clarity I usually lose once the noise of the day gets into full swing.
Do you have a favorite time of day? I want to try to recreate this time I enjoy so much throughout the course of my crazy days, even if it's just for a minute or two...!
