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
The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho
The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz
Daring Greatly, Brene Brown
The Music Lesson, Victor Wooten
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.
