Just thinking about the school year behind us, my child at school, the dynamical job of my husband, other things that happened in our life, as me starting blogging, for example. All forceful events that happened in the world and which are breaking so many loving people’s hearts. And now I hope some weeks with a kind of break will start… Alltough many people seem to be happy with the holidays, including myself, it always brings me a kind of sadness as well. It feels like saying goodbye in some way…
Is it the order of events, which will be different during holidays, -as running out of energy quickly, I prefer quite a regular rythm of planning in my life-, giving me such a hard time, or is it thinking too much about life and another year what passes by? I don’t know. It is a bit of the same feeling as I have around Christmas and New Year’s Eve. It must be my philosophical nature which never stops thinking and pondering…
However, I will enjoy this holiday season, for sure. I will pass some good quality time with my beloved family and close friends, I will have more time with my lovely son -such a heavenly creature he is!- and the weather forecast is rather good, at least for the coming week. So we will enjoy this period, for sure.
I just have to accept the little tickle of sadness, of saying goodbye. Of ending a schoolyear. Of standing still, as I feel. Of a different daily order in which things are going to happen. But it is good to ‘stand still’, to regain strength, to meditate, to let time passing by without doing something strictly usefull. “Just be’. That’s ok. No, its indispensable from time to time.
And I can predict: in six weeks time, there will be a very big chance of me posting a log in which I express my nostalgic feeling about the past wonderful and cosy holiday season, with probably a philosophic preview-to-the-coming-year included 😀
Wishing you all lovely holidays! ♥
