A little bit dress up, a little bit of green magic…

A Winter Solstice Stock Take

Leave a comment

This year I met the Winter Solstice with a little more reticence than usual. I felt a little bleak and my fun dial needed to be reset! A stock take was in order. So a dark night contemplation led to a desire to

Decongest!
De-clutter !
Desist !

Congestion a gathering or accumulation; a heap or pile. I certainly have a few of those. I can easily rationalise them away. I mean I have a baby for goodness sake, but in reality Heaps Happen, and I have to work hard to prevent and shift them. CONSTANTLY.

Less of

Chocolate and other sweeties
Clutter
Traffic
Queues
Stressing
Busyness
Collections

More of

Yoga
Breathing
Taking stock physically and metaphorically
Healthful ways
centering
Resting
Just enough

This list translated into a few tangible actions today.

I decided to try an experiment which shocked me by how novel and radical it would be: I would not wear black for a week and see how it felt. . .”

Embracing the Anti black challenge

So Decongest, De-clutter and Desist today. You might feel a whole lot lighter.

Coming soon: Elderberry Brew, The No Black Challenge and Winter Garden Frolics.

I am inhabited by an eclectic disinhibited woman who dresses how she pleases. She doesn't always agree with the plant woman in me who likes to potter in the garden. They are both me and I am okay with that.
