Welcome to Winter Solstice 2015.
(This super awesome shirt came from skylinefever on Etsy.)
Every sentence that has passed through my head has begun with “normally”…
which indicates that my way of celebrating and reflecting is usually different.
“Normally” I am just as busy—maybe moreso. And yet, I “normally” feel like I have more time to reflect.
What I am realizing is that I have had the same amount of time—very little.
But “normally” I have less to process.
“Normally” my year is not so full as this one was.
A year ago today there was no indication that we would move this year.
I have continued through this year, in addition to all the events that don’t “normally “ happen, to continue to choose activity when I could choose otherwise. I have insisted on still living my life. Being with friends. Traveling. Partying. Even when I haven’t had time to put all the pieces together emotionally. It will come in time. Perhaps that is what next year will be.
Letting it all settle slowly, instead of trying to tie up all the loose ends here in a single short day.
