That time of year..
Thursday, December 13, 2012
You know what I mean - when times get busy and you're doing lots of things and going lots of places and accomplishing lots of tasks and seeing lots of people.
Yea, that's not really happening with me right now. I'm pretty mellow and low-key at the moment. This is mostly a good thing in that I've somehow misplaced that semi-frenetic sense of 'you're doing it wrong' or 'you've forgotten something'. Our holiday season will be mostly low key as well. We'll do the family thing with the Portland family here, and I'll miss my W.Va. family back east. It'll just be me and Bill (and the four-leggers and two-wingers) this year for Christmas and New Years, which will be nice. We'll celebrate by spending time at the shelter, walking those kids and spreading some love, then spend time doting on our own wacky pack.
I'm not really moving much. I think about moving. Mostly, I get home and bundle up in warm comfies and spend time with the kids. I'm not really tracking nutrition that much either. Bits and pieces here and there, which is fine for the moment.
I'm in a weird place/head space right now, and I'm pretty much enjoying it. I have plans, and I have plans to implement my plans. I see a way forward, but I'm not dashing off to charge along that path quite yet. I'm simply 'being' and I'm ok with that. Sometimes, you just have to 'be' in order to be more.
I'll likely remain pretty quiet here on Spark through to the end of the year. We do have plans for getting together with people, attending events, getting out and about. Social stuff, just not crazy-mad-busy stuff. I'll be joining SparkPortland teammates at the Oregon Food Bank on the 22nd for a lovely morning shift, and I'm looking forward to that. Yea, may days my not be a whirlwind of activity right now, but that's perfectly fine by me.
May you find your peace and a way to 'be' in the coming weeks and holiday season.
