Here we are. Holiday season. As if it isn't crazy enough with Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years. We also have Becca's birthday, her party, her school program, the squadron Christmas party, my three Christmas chorus concerts (and rehearsals), out of town visitors and a trip to Tennessee scheduled in there too. I feel like I am already in hyper-over-drive about it all...thinking too much, making too many lists.
I really want to be relaxed and peaceful and Zen about all this. How can I slow down and breathe deeply and take it all in? How can I let the small stuff go? I can buy Becca a birthday cake. I can mail Christmas presents obnoxiously early. I can skip writing a Christmas letter this year. We don't have to go find a Christmas tree right away. We can eat pizza instead of home-cooked meals. I really want to let it all roll off my back. To be here. Present. Calm. That is my goal.
