Day 980 waxing lyrical today for some reason ♥️

I had the best sleep last night. I slept all night and could hardly wake at the alarm. I felt really refreshed.

I saw this on FB and shared it first thing. Read it slowly.

I’ve thought about this all day.

I would never have taken the time to read this or even digest it, in the past.

I wore my “busyness” as a badge of honour. I was so proud of the fact I never stopped…I left the house at 6.15am and got home by 6.30pm at the very earliest. I was actually really proud of myself for being the last to leave some nights. I’d still be looking at my phone and answering emails after work.

I was a very busy fool.

I am so grateful that I got to stop, look around and listen for a few years.

This moment right here… this is your life. This is it.

It’s not the holiday you are looking forward to. Not the regrets that you have about the past. But here. Now. Right now. This is your life and it’s up to you to choose what you make of it.

You chose how you react to difficult situations in your life. You take control of your present moment and make it what you want it to be.

Stop. Breathe in that freezing cold air outside and be present. (put a coat on!!)

This is one of the nicest times of the year. Marvel at all the twinkling lights, the festivities and the buzz that people have before Christmas, because all too soon it will be 2023 and we will wonder where 2022 went. We never get another shot at the 13th December 2022.

This is also something for us women to think about whenever anyone takes a photo over Christmas…. 📸

Craig had an amazing day today…. He had an unexpected day off and I came home to the fire on, all the candles lit, dinner ready, all the wood stores filled with freshly chopped wood and a happy smiling boy. He could have lazed about all day but he chose to make it worthwhile.

Anyway…. Check me waxing lyrical like some kind of zen master. 🤦🏻‍♀️😂 (For those of you who know me well…. Do as I say, not as I do. 😂😂)

Here are some of our lights..

We’re not having a tree this year in an effort to save money but we’re enjoying the lights and candles instead.

I wore so many layers to work today! It was -6°C when I left for work. A real heavy frost.

I love walking out to this Christmassy scene.

Just been out the back with the dogs and the cold takes your breathe away. Wish us luck for the Fit Body Farm in the morning…. ❄️❄️❄️

Stay warm and safe everyone ❄️❄️❄️
