The holiday spirit hit me this week (hooray!). It happened after an in depth and very necessary conversation with my hubs about.. slowing the "F" down. Hey, whatever works, right?
We have been in a constant hustle of moving forward for the past almost 9 months and it's been a roller coaster of fun and also of challenge. There have been plenty of times when I have stopped and looked down convinced that the floor was going to come out from under me! But... it never does. A belief of mine is that we are given all that we can handle. It's funny how it's necessary to hit that wall sometimes in order to wake up and see what is happening before you. I have known for a while now that this is what I was craving, what I needed and what was necessary, but my own personal fear of saying "No" to too many things has gotten in my way.

Truth. Thank you Pema. So in short, we've decided to say "No" to more things (and please don't take it personally). What if you celebrated someone every time they said "No Thank You"? They're likely honoring what they need most.
So with all of that - Happy Holidays! May this season be filled with slowness, peace and ease for you. You deserve it!
