Monday Musings: Holiday Break

Just a quick heads up here. I am taking a quick break from blogging and a lot of the rest of the internets for the rest of this week. Here in USA, we have Thanksgiving coming up this Thursday, and although we will not be hosting our holiday dinner until Sunday and it will be many less people than usual, I just want to take some time to get things ready. I also think it’s not a bad idea to just pull back from all the press of social media and other online things once in a while. We do tend to get too wrapped up in those things, don’t we? We forget to look around, to appreciate, to enjoy.

Today, for example, I was out walking the dog. It was a pretty decent day unlike the last few. Not too cold, the sun was shining, the sky was deep, deep blue, and the air has a crispness to it that you don’t get at any other time of the year. The light is very different in this late fall season, as well. Those are things that, I think, we forget to notice on a regular basis. Too much hurry, too much doing, too much gotta keep up. It’s good to slow down once in while.

So, for those who will be celebrating this week, Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy it, be grateful for all you have, and be present to the good around you. For the rest of you, take a moment or two this week and look around. See the beauty and take it in. You will feel better, I promise. I will see you all in December!
