The Beauty of The Pause:  The First Days of January 

“Life’s most precious moments are not all loud or uproarious. Silence and stillness has its own virtues.”

The deep sigh the earth makes in January. The energy has switched and I relax into the slower pace. Back to a more regular schedule. I’ve set my alarm at the same time every morning and start my day with exercise; my body likes to move and stretch in the morning.

Over night oats with blueberries or a steaming bowl of lentil stew. I crave food that takes time and is comforting and wholesome. I embrace the re-connection to groundedness.

At this time of year, the forest is misty and I see my breath as I walk. The ivy and cedar aren’t disturbed by the cold, I nestle deeper into my wool coat.

I’ll let my photos speak for me today. For now I pause in the stillness and breathe in the new year with quiet contemplation.

The first month of the year,
A perfect time to start all over again,
Changing energies and deserting old moods,
New beginnings, new attitudes”

Breathe in the new year. Thanks for joining me.
