If September is all about getting back into routines, October is certainly about preparing for…
first second Monday of the month, time to welcome January and set some intentions . . .
When I think about January, I think about stillness. I think about quiet. I think about contemplation. To me, it’s a time to move into the new year carefully and with consideration for how I want to spend my time. It’s not about resolutions and changes, it’s about welcoming a new year and season with mindfulness and purpose.
This year that looks like planning time for movement, making time for rest, and allowing time for creativity. Those are things I strive for every month but it always hits a little different when it’s the first month of the year. In the past I would say it has felt heavier but this year my aim is to make it feel lighter. To make it resonate with my purpose and my soul. To make it exactly right for me and to accept, at the same time, that what’s exactly right for me can change at any moment, whether by design or the need for an unexpected adaptation.
