Life, Holiday and Getting Towards the End of the Year Edition

It was a musical Christmas.

We also got a Switch. We’ve been playing a lot of Maria Kart. It’s very nostalgic for Penn (15) and I; we used to play it a ton on our old Wii. Milo (4) and I are trying to figure out Minecraft. I am old, so figuring out all the commands on the controller is a learning curve. Milo will quickly be more proficient than I at this version of Minecraft.

It’s been a very relaxing holiday for our family. I very much needed the time to reconnect with family and just have a mental break from the normal, hectic work life.

I’ve struggled with acceptance this year but I feel like I’m having some small breakthroughs here at the end of the year. It’s a good time to reflect, as always. I still frequently feel restless, like I need to be doing something…something more…but I’m finally learning that it is often best to do nothing, at least at first…to just be still and listen. I’m not the one in control, and that’s ok.
