I hope everyone reading things had a wonderful holiday filled with love, light and peace! December is my busiest month in all the things I do (art and other work too) so I haven’t really been able to blog in my usual way. In January though, it will be back to business more-as-usual.
This week’s card is a sweet one. As much as we’re having a time of focusing (or re-focusing) on practical matters; bills that need attention, diet that needs to be re-stabilised after the holidays, keeping in touch with loved ones – this week’s card reminds us to not be so caught up in things that we can’t have some times of simple delight.
This is not a week to do everything or try to wrap up everything in a neat tidy box, or go into post-holiday “must fix everything” obsession mode. It’s good to clean up, and there’s even energy flowing that is going to help us be productive … but easy does it. There’s still time to take a few moments to appreciate wonderment, to share a few tender moments with loved ones or even visit a new place.
Even though the party/holiday/festivities season is starting to wind down, this is a time when there are still some fun festivities to be enjoyed. If you do end up being busy, or focused on a project, take time to savour small delights and find them shining and glimmering alongside the must-dos and have-tos that are cropping up this week.
Not every delight is a glitzy experience, or a package wrapped in a bow. Some of the most delightful things are simple or unexpected. And if your holiday shopping is over, there’s still opportunities for you to CREATE delight this week too. There’s more giving and sharing that you could inspire others with this week.
