Looking Forward: November

As the end of the year draws closer, I appreciate the time and space to reflect on what I am most grateful for. Life can often feel fast and chaotic—I find it beneficial to slow down and notice what is already there. Feeling the warmth of the sun on a crisp, fall afternoon; pausing to observe children playing joyfully with one another; or taking a moment to witness the color and beauty in my surroundings—these are a few things that bring me joy and gratitude. The month of November feels especially heartwarming as we explore with the children what it means to be grateful—and we discover...

The magic of doing….nothing

I was recently advised to take one day a week and have nothing scheduled, no obligations- just having one day free of “to do” lists, or the necessity of having to be somewhere- appointments and the like– just letting the day flow as it will.  Lovely, I thought, but as it turns out, easier said than done. Then one day I actually accomplished this. As a result, I felt refreshed and renewed and made a promise to follow the practice regularly. With our increasingly complex lives, it has become the norm to be in a rush and to agonize over the day to day and minute to minute obligations we...
