Time to unplug

That’s where I’m at; it’s time to unplug.  All of the festivities, engagements and commitments are complete.  It has been busy and wonderful, and now I need some time to rest and rejuvenate before the New Year begins.  I’ve never taken this time before.  I always go from Christmas into clean-up, into New Year’s resolutions, into the winter term projects.  But I’m wondering now, if the goals I set for the New Year have come from a place of ‘should do’ rather than ‘inspired, or called to do’?  When I am exhausted, I can’t get to the inside stuff where inspiration comes from.  So I’m taking some time, a full 48 hours, to rest, read, relax, regroup, reflect – all of those good ‘r words’.

Here’s my reading list, at least for now.  It will likely change as I ‘springboard’ from one idea to another.  Some of these titles are new, some are re-reads, but all are things I want to read, rather than books I need to read for some purpose.

The Five Love Languages, Gary Chapman

This is an experiment.  I feel rather decadent and accomplished for taking it on.  I wish you peaceful inspiration as the New Year approaches.  And now it’s time for me to unplug.
