There are seasons in life that are busy, whether we like it or not. I've just come through a busy month. Busy for me, anyway. Now, I know some people thrive on events, parties, spending time with others.
I'm not one of them.
I know this from experience. I am strongly introverted and contemplative. Yes, I like to spend time with friends, but in small groups. Approaching 50, I have learned some things about myself and what I need to do for self-care, and one of those things is to eschew busy-ness where I can. One event a week is enough for me. I know how to pace myself and generally do it well, but this last month just happened to have more in it than I would have liked. It has taken a week to recover, and I am glad to be back in my journal, pottering in my studio, and having some solitude.
Do you love the hustle and bustle of the holiday season? Or do you know that you need to find breathing space?
I shall be sharing this on Paint Party Friday. Check out all the wonderful work that's been created this week.
