During January, I provided meal service for Raka Creative's holiday party. It was such a wonderful experience to work with this forward thinking and innovative company. The staff was welcoming, supportive, and friendly. It was such a pleasure to set up shop in their open-concept workspace, that houses a large kitchen and space for me to prepare and serve a really fun vegetarian meal!
It can be so easy for some of us to get stuck in the go, go, go, do, do, do pattern. For me, once I get into this pattern, it’s hard for me to break it. I wind myself up and just want to accomplish. This is what I am working on. For whatever reason, it’s really hard for me to listen, slow down, and take care of myself.
As I sat on my couch on a chilly windy morning, I began to write this post . Inspired to write, I sat myself down with a cup of tea and began. Some of us are coming off a very busy holiday season, and some of us were met with a very quiet season. Regardless, the holiday time is tricky and can leave us feeling full of joy, abundance, and love, but also anxious, disconnected, and lonely. Most of us may have fallen out of sync from our normal routines. Following this abundant season, we are immediately inspired and/or expected to move forward with intentions, goals, routines, and resolutions. This is certainly a big shift and we often time go at it like a bull in a china shop.
