Hello December

Saturday, December 01, 2012

Can you believe that December has already arrived? It seems like it was just October. Although it has been a pretty tough year for me, I feel that it has zoomed by at the speed of light. Now the holiday season has arrived  and the hope & excitement for a brand new year is swirling about in the air. December is one of my favorite months because I greatly enjoy getting enraptured with the magic of the holiday season. I have already put up my tree and decorated it with colorful tinsel, mint candy canes, and some colorful owl ornaments.  A massive bakefest of holiday goodies is in my near future as well. 

I'm listening to the She & Him holiday album and sipping on a cup of Twining pumpkin spice tea as I compose this post. The weather has just started to cool down in Amarillo, and I'm hopeful that our first snowfall will not be too far away. Scarf & boot weather is probably my favorite.  

I have been struggling with my writing lately, feeling almost insecure about my abilities to put words down onto paper. I have even shied away from writing in my journal. I find it difficult to even write short paragraphs without going back to edit & erase. I've always been a very confident writer, composing my thoughts without a worry and taking the time edit only after I had a chance to express my thoughts freely. Now I am feeling much more critical of myself and my writing. Have you ever struggled with an inner critic? 

I have been in an extreme transition period for the past few months, moving to a brand new city & starting a full time job. The freedom has been exhilarating at times, but often I find myself feeling homesick for all that I have been familiar with.  This has definitely been an adventure. I have had a reoccuring dream about hot air balloons over the past couple of weeks. Always the dreamologist, I feel that this dream holds a deeper meaning for me. Perhaps its meaning will reveal itself to me when I need it most. 

I just wanted to pop in and welcome December. The arrival of December has always felt much like the arrival of a beloved & old friend. 

Wherever you are in the world, I sincerely hope that you are warm, safe, and filled with contentedness. 

Sending positive vibes your way,
