Cozy

Cozy

January 25, 2012

So I’m sitting here, staring at the white screen.  I had a blog post planned, but I can’t seem to type the words. I hear, “Never miss a chance to make it personal” in the back of my mind. I also hear my mind telling me that I’ve got to make a change. I’m trying to cram too much into too little time. I know we’ve all been there, saying yes to too many things I need to be saying no to. Last night I hosted the women from our GC and it was so good to curl up on the couch with a new blanket and just talk to these awesome women. Hear fears, honest discussion, truth in love suggestions, and support each other. It’s amazing how many similar things we face as women. And it is so good to be a part of a group that loves and supports each other through all of these things. This is what real community should feel like! Cozy on the couch, spilling your guts out. Then gently pushing you to be  even more real. To talk about the why. To slow down and be content in the present. To take joy in all things.

Do you have people in your life that keep you real? How do you process when you get overwhelmed? I can tell you one thing, I’ve got an evening of journaling in my very near future. Curled up on the couch next to Wil. Figuring out how to make the space for things I love, and how to find a way to say no before I’m cliff diving into overload.
