I love this week. Adore it. Look forward to it all year. The final week of the year. The feeling of being in between, somehow, bringing closure to this year and preparing for what is to come. I feel a curious peace blended with urgency in this week. I feel curiously confident that anything is possible.
The Peace:In contrast to the rest of the year, somehow in this week I feel as though I have all the time in the world. The days feel long and quiet, open to possibility. I might work, play, cook, snuggle - I am confident there is ample room in my life for all of these and more.
The Urgency:It’s time. To complete long overdue projects and start the new year fresh. To scrub down cabinets. To shed unwanted items. It’s like my pre-menstrual cleaning urges amplified 100x. I have this insatiable need to clear and clean and begin the new year fresh. This urgency feels light & free, wide open with potential.
How will you enjoy this most wonderful week of the year?
