one joy at a time
I've yet to make that list.
Projects to finish, gifts to purchase, cookies to bake, places to be... they are all still dancing in my head... a lovely slow waltz as opposed to frenzied quick step. I wonder if not making that list will relieve a bit of the pressure that December is known for? Maybe, maybe not. I just know that I am not ready... not quite yet. I am enjoying the moments as they come... planting myself firmly in the right now rather than looking to what else needs to be accomplished.
Certainly, I could be setting myself up for trouble, almost hovering towards procrastination... letting the stack of Christmas cards sit unaddressed, allowing my mind to wander towards bright new ideas without first accomplishing the must-dos. But maybe... keeping the rush from my heart and mind will eliminate the broken down feelings that stress brings on, leaving me with the overwhelming feelings of not enough. I'm willing to take the chance. Willing to trust that I am enough and I can enjoy December as the whirlwind of this month picks up speed... one joy at a time.
