In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you. Deepak Chopra
The past four days were chock-full of family, travel, activities and holiday preparations. It was that weekend when Thanksgiving and Christmas converge, with Santa’s arrival putting a giant exclamation point at the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. And yes, once again, I heard the starter pistol go off in my head as soon as I saw him.
In the midst of all that movement, I did my best to keep stillness inside of me. It wasn’t easy, and I wasn’t always successful, believe me. But I learned again that being aware puts me half-way there. The brevity of my post today is evidence of that awareness. I refused to touch my computer this weekend. I needed the break, so I did no writing and devoted my time to family.
If you celebrated Thanksgiving this weekend, how did it go for you? Are you approaching the holiday season with more stillness and mindful movement?
