A belated Happy New Year! I don't know about you but as much as I enjoy the holidays, I tend to overdo things and exhaust myself. It takes me awhile to get back on track and into the groove again. Can you relate? So it's now with a sigh of relief, time to welcome winter and officially grant myself permission to slow down. Wanna join me? I didn't always feel this way about winter or slowing down. I used to have such judgement and resistance when it came to anything about winter. Heck when I was in my twenties, I even went to school in Florida and moved to sunny southern California because I wanted summer year round. But after awhile I missed the seasons.
