After the frenzy of the holiday rush and traveling, I am happy to get settled back into my routine. I loved my short-but-sweet visit with my family in the East Coast, seeing my nephews and niece, and spending a fun, relaxing weekend with (some of) my loved ones. Perhaps someday, my whole big family -- now living far apart -- can spend Christmas together.
I'm thankful that we did not get caught in the recent East Coast blizzard, and that we were able to fly back here in the nick of time.
The day after Christmas, I tend to enjoy my quiet moments. Moments in which I can look back and reflect on the year.
I came across this quote in an article:
"Behind every inner block, every painful feeling, every surge of resentment, is a bit of life force waiting to be freed." - Sally Kempton
What a great thought to ponder on as we prepare to usher in the new year. What are the inner blocks I am holding? What resentments do I have that I want to let go of and not carry with me into the new year? How can I let go of these to free up some of that "life force", so that I can put in more energy towards the people and things I love and value, the things that lead me to my highest, most authentic self?
