“Usually, when the distractions of daily life deplete our energy, the first thing we eliminate is the thing we need the most: quiet, reflective time. Time to dream, time to contemplate what’s working and what’s not, so that we can make changes for the better.”
Sarah Breathnach, Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy – January 17

My distain for December is equal only to my joy for January.  January is that big sigh of relief after finishing a dreaded chore — for me, the holiday season. It simply exhausts me.

January is polished silver. A time of reflection. A time to put away or buff up the old and start over, making way for a new day, a new year. A time to organize. A time to clear the clutter from the house and my head. A time for a new plan.

(It’s gonna be good.)
