Holiday Sanity and Sadness

These past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity – celebrating Thanksgiving, getting ready for Christmas, closing out 2014.

Yoga, meditation, and Reiki have been at the top of my priority list during my free time. I have to say they’ve really helped this busy season feel relatively stress-free! Let’s see if I can still say that after spending time with my extended family over the next few days. 😉

I have to admit that today I’m feeling a bit down and missing my dad. This time last year it felt like such an accomplishment to get to the holidays in one piece that I didn’t really allow myself to feel much of anything. This year, the sadness is there. It’s not such a heavy sorrow anymore. Rather, it’s a dull ache that makes itself felt a little bit stronger from time to time. There’s so much more I could write, but I think I’d rather hold it all in my heart a little while longer.

I hope you all have a great holiday with your loved ones! See you in 2015!
