A Merry Christmas To You!

Well here I find myself with a million ideas and plans and thoughts and yet not the time to execute them.

Here I find myself with five half written posts but not one completed one.

Here I find myself planning to see out the year with a least three more weeks of writing scheduled.

Yet here I find myself unwilling to be stressed, to feel bad, to succumb to guilt or self imposed pressure or some sort of strange notion of failure.

Because a very smart woman told me I don't owe anyone anything.

I had planned to answer these questions.  I had planned to take stock.  I had planned a post on the beautiful christmas gifts I had arranged for our kinder and school teachers.

And yet here I find myself the morning after a night of catching up with girlfriends all buoyant with Christmas spirit and thinking this might do.

I wasn't going to wrap things up like this, so soon, quite now.  But it feels right.  Let's call it a night.  For now.  For Christmas.  A rest, a recharge.  I have so many ideas and plans for next year.

I am so grateful to everyone for reading here.  Especially grateful to all my BWP Alumna - you know who you are you gorgeous, supportive, amazing creatures.  So indebted to Pip for all she has shared with me.  So in awe of how good things can be when you let them.

I think next year is going to be a good one.  And I really look forward to connecting with you again then.

In the meantime I wish you all the safest and happiest of holidays seasons.

Be well. Be really well. x

Whatchya doin' for the holiday season?
