Our chilly weather lately has made me go into this phase of wanting to curl up on the sofa underneath a cozy blanket and just sit. With a mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows and sprinkles on top. Or a cup full of steaming coffee. A mug of delicious hot tea. It's a very good thing I do not live up north, as I don't think I would leave my house for months on end.
For some reason, this weather makes me turn towards my reflective side, does that happen to you? Maybe it's just because I'm finally sitting and doing nothing, instead of trying to do everything at once, but I find myself spending more time thinking about things that really matter to me, and trying - finally - to take the steps to make those things more of a priority, instead of just wishing they were. As I spend time thinking, I feel my spirit coming alive again. I see the creative sparks, the hopeful thoughts, the wishful dreams. I feel renewed, and energized.
If you haven't taken the time to snuggle under a blanket and just be, you must indulge yourself, and stir your soul!
