This morning, I “needed” to get Christmas cards printed, finish shopping, wrap gifts, run this errand, go here, go there.
Then I woke up feeling awful- sore throat, itchy eyes, runny nose, the works.
What I actually need? To lay on this couch and watch “Miracle on 34th Street” with a cup of OJ and the Williams Sonoma catalogue (great recipes).
It’s so funny how the body has a way of telling us what we really need. I knew my week was spread too thin after a weekend where I was spread too thin but full steam ahead it was.
In the midst of your to-do list today, find some time to slow down, just for you. Drink a cup of tea slowly, go for a walk, chuckle about a long forgotten holiday memory. Slowing down to speed up- you’ll thank yourself later.
