Welcome to 2018!
I have been off in hibernation over the holidays – it is what I do every year. I visit my family at the beginning of December, my hubby heads off to his family’s house, and I stay at the casa with Travis (the cat) and hibernate.
It is one of my favorite things to do each year. There is a space that opens inside of me when I am left to my own devices, when I can make my own schedule, and when there is no one, but Travis of course, to listen to me regurgitate my thoughts audibly.
For the past 20 or so years, I have practiced my end of the year ritual. It is not even about the new year itself but rather the energy that permeates everything and everyone towards the end of the year that resonates with me. Everyone seems to be in the same mindset; there is more optimism everywhere I look, and I ride the tide and wrap myself in the energy that feels like wrapping up and beginning anew.
