December Musings

Today has been one of those days. One of those days around holiday time when you just feel drained -- physically, emotionally, mentally. I feel used up.

I've been going through my days, doing the things I've set out to do: making my green smoothies, filling my water bottles and drinking them down, doing my best to get through all the things I need to do at work and leaving on time (whether I'm done or not), going to the gym, meditating before bed. I can't help feeling that I should be feeling BETTER. I should be feeling healthy and energized and unstoppable. Instead, I feel spent.

I feel like I move through my days like I'm moving through a to-do list. As much as I love lists, they are not a substitute for a life.

Is it the holidays that make me feel this way? The ebbing daylight? Or just the end of a rather trying year? I ponder these questions, hoping that if I can find an answer, then I can find a solution.

Hoping that 2012's musings will become 2013's muse.

We go through the same motions year after year and all we get is older? That's pretty dreary. But true! We pick races, set goals, go finish the race or meet the goal (or both if you're lucky) and then set the next goal. go after it. The trick is to find the joy in the daily grind. I try to appreciate the consistency of it all.
