REST & REFLECTION

The new year is here, it came quickly and quietly and now it rests. We too have used January to rest and reflect, to make plans and chase dreams in the coming year. December and January are two of my favorite months of the year, their pairing couldn't be anymore necessary. They go hand in hand as brothers. They are partners, one bustling and busy with cheer and joy, the other with quiet meditations, solitude, and new beginnings. Rest for the heart and quiet for the mind. The perfect compliments of time.

  1. I am finding that rest & reflection are way underrated in our highly public lives. It is a challenge to truly value things that are totally internal and private.

  4. Beautifully put. It's easy to feel kind of morose after the the glitter and gluttony of the festive period, but you're right, it is nice to begin anew and to welcome in a fresh year with quiet contemplation.
