194 My December Theme

There are things that are alterable by the moment. And staying in the moment is key to the perfect December!

Coming out of the retreat, I found more dedication to being dedicated.  That makes me laugh.  So I am continuing.  More art.  More focus.  More joy.

December brings challenges, because there is a lot to “do”.  I like the December list.  It includes some of my favorite kinds of action.  But there is chaos in the sheer amount of demand.  Covid reduces it a bit, not so much party structure.  I think that will help many people have a simpler season.  A more Divine focus.

I see timeline challenges in my mind.  The medical stuff has a lot of ramp up and appointments.  I have a string of tests on Christmas Eve, including a new CT scan, a wound visit, perhaps a happy little EKG.  My regular chemo schedule will bring up another two sets of altered states days, as many as four each.  That’s a lot of time that can have the appearance of being lost.  But that is an appearance.  Quiet is important.  There is no wasted moment.

When I see my emergence clearly, see that I want to stay in connection with my Source, and want to do the season with joy and clarity, I will have to keep being observant of the moment.  There is joy at the base of all things.  I will stay the course, and focus.  

And things can drop by the wayside.  I have a “to do” list (not concrete, but intentional).  But honestly, is wrapping necessary?  Are cards a thing of this era?  Can’t food come premade?  There are things that are alterable by the moment.  And staying in the moment is key to the perfect December!  Enjoy it.
